Work has been stressful lately. The person in charge is somebody who lives in fear and shames people to try to control their behavior. It got so bad that I called her supervisor and she agreed that the three of us should have a conversation.
I avoided talking to her one on one because I thought I was not going to be able to do it in a professional manner. She thought that I was afraid of her. I have prayed for her. I have talked to my sponsor, friends, psychiatrist, and anybody who would listen about her.
A coworker who I truly admire left the company because the person in charge had been bullying her for months. This person who left is no wallflower, she has years of experience in her field and decades of sobriety under her belt but she still felt she could not handle the person in charge. Another coworker of mine is really close to resigning too.
The moral is really low at work. I guess I’m having “high class” problems. I have everything I need. I enjoy my line of work and helping people. I have family and friends who love me. I am well regarded, even liked, at work.
I have allowed this person to take too much space in head. It is time for me let go of this person and let her be who she’s going to be. I am powerless over “person in charge” and my life has become unmanageable. I have come to believe that I power greater than myself can restore me to sanity. I turn my will and my life over to a power greater than myself.
