If you can't change your job......

Sunday, April 27, 2014

I 've been mobbed for years and sometimes still happens in my job . I am still in the same job as I've been able to reduce this to a minimum but it still sometimes happens.
There are people above/next to me who hate me, but this is part of being in a job.
It has happened again but this time I realized I had to change my attitude.
I did not want to look sad as these people take comfort & happiness in seeing the people they persecute look devastated.
So this time I decided to put up a happy face, went to the common room and talked to everybody as funnily as I could.
I caught an icy, angry look from the person who is persecuting me and I think I found a brand new solution to my problem.
These people enjoy themselves making other people miserable, if they see you happy they are upset and maybe - this is my theory - they'll stop oppressing you and try to hassle somebody else.
The point is, this attitude is helping me enjoy and thrive in my job.....and I am sure it would be valuable for a lot of people.
If you can't change your job, change the way you look at it.
I'll let you know how this goes on

    I've been trying to change my attitude about work for about 10 years. It's not my colleagues that are the problem, for the most. And my torturers aren't likely doing it on purpose, but I will mull over this to see how I might apply it. Thanks!

    Needless to say, eating over any of this is would really make them win!

    HOORAY! That's the spirit Marcyna.
    That is exactly how you will make them lose their power.
    I am glad you are enjoying being at work more now.
    I hope you have a great week ahead. Keep it up!

    May karma have its way with those who are giving you grief - this is inexcusable in *ANY* kind of professional environments........I mean - people DEPEND on work for survival, so why the $#!@# do people behave in such an irresponsible, anti-social and unprofessional manner? (Yeah, I've BTDT - and it's a *miracle* I don't have an ulcer to show for it!)


    I hope you have a great day and that things improve ASAP! You deserve better!
