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
