Without going into a great detail, I am no longer happy with my current job. I have worked for my boss for 11 years and though, at times, the work was not challenging (and sometimes downright dull), I really liked my boss, so stayed with him.
I could have promoted, or changed positions, within the company any number of times, but I have gone the workaholic route earlier in my life and chose to stay in a comfortable position. I don’t work ridiculous hours and I don’t take home work home with me.
During the summer, our group was reorganized under a new vice president. I don’t know much about her, except that she is a raging workaholic. My boss has since been trying to keep up with her and apparently doing whatever he can to try and make her notice his work. He is a really smart attorney who has been with the company for around 30 years, so just should not have to try that hard to be noticed. I think he is also intimidated by her, which really weirds me out, as she is younger than he is.
Well, January and February were rough. My boss was under a lot of stress and it all rolled straight downhill to me. I know, I know, shit runs downhill. But there are more diplomatic ways to throw it than the way he did. I always had a lot of respect for my boss and really, really liked him but my feelings have changed now. I am ready to find something else, though it is not going to be easy, since I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. LOL!
I was really upset over all this, but a couple of weeks ago, refused to let it all ruin my weekend, so I had an attitude adjustment. I have been in a much better mood, and find it amazing how much better you can feel when you no longer give a crap. LOL! I give a crap about my quality of work, but I am not going to let anyone make me cry at work again!
I am still doing my same amazing work. LOL! I am just not going to let anything my boss does upset me. Interestingly enough, he has been REALLY nice the last week or so. My friend says the boss is probably scared he went to far and is worried I am going to leave. Let him worry.
