Enjoy your trip, Camping in nature is always a good thing to do!!
Hope you feel better soon!
Nothing shallow about it. Went for a manicure, pedicure and a facial today (which I hardly ever do) and I feel great!!!!! Sometimes it is good to take time for you
Hope you made it!
I did A thank you but I'm counting down the minutes to home time
well try and count your successes. You drove to work. You went in despite how you felt. That can be tough. I remember going through a stage where I had a gagging fit every morning before going into teaching practice. It was very tempting to stay
at home. Which I did once or twice. . . Have you ever tried counselling?
Yes I did CBT last year. It helped a lot at the time.
Doubling up on hugs 💕 sending love
Hope it will turn out ok. Not all changes are bad. Keep us posted!
Meeting went reasonably well. I had my say and my fighting spirit is back. I'm not going to let them screw me over.
Wow, good for you!! Well done!!
Good on you Lulu. Sending smiles your way
Lulu, I also have this problem. My principles are tested on an almost weekly basis but I can do nothing. The time and money wasted is outrageous but I have to put up and shut up.
Penelope it's comforting know someone understands but how sad that it is common. I can't name my employer because they are very high profile and uk people will know their work. It's all so fake. It's all about the director's egos
The culture of bullying is rife and because I try to remain true to my principles I get labelled as 'trouble'. My position is being undermined and I think they are hoping I will leave. The stress is affecting my health
Lulu, very sorry about your situation. Our place is all about the image and paying the chief exec a load of money for never being in the office and therefore never being accountable for the shabby management.
I try to just concentrate on my clients and doing the best I can for them. Unfortunately not everyone else has the same attitude and just like to take charitable funding whilst doing very little.
It's a shame but it seems to be happening more and more in the voluntary sector :(
I'm sorry for your situation too. Actually it's slightly comforting in that I thought it was just my employer and that I'd made a bad or unlucky choice. If it's more common then it's a symptom of the society we live in today.
Whilst that doesn't make it right it makes it easier for me to handle. I know I'm not alone in feeling frustrated and let down by people I thought were, or should be, more moral and ethical than a profit making enterprise.
Thank you for sharing Penelope. I actually feel like a weight has been lifted from me. Huge relief. 🙏🏻
Aw Lulu, you are most certainly not alone. My colleague said to me “I know you've got your principles but you've got to try and get past them”!! It's not something you can “get past” but until another job turns up for me then I have to endure..
I try to make my personal life more rewarding in order to compensate and as long as I know my clients are happy for what they pay for then I am content with my contribution. Big hugs!
I try to do the same Penelope. My creative hobbies and pastimes are a life saver and get me through.
I won't let the bullies win and take my power away
Ha! I just hugged myself by mistake ... maybe that's no bad thing though.
Are you gardening or just enjoying the sunshine? Being in motion and doing something with your hands sometimes helps me.
Sunshine always helps :( maybe try listening to music
I did some gardening and it did help distract me Lydia. Normally I like the peace and quiet and sounds of nature so I don't listen to music Stephanie. I'll give it a go though 🙂
glad gardening helped! welldone you or being proactive and trying out advice!! 😁
