Bad day

Published February 1, 2017 by katee124

Today has been a pretty bad day for me.

Started off this morning fine, thinking “halfway through the week, woohoo”

Got to work and it just wasn’t playing ball.

This nasty girl I sit near was on form, she was arguing with me every time I opened my mouth. I could of said the world was shaped like a ball and she would of argued it was a square. 

She’s so aggressive & intimidating, it makes me feel uncomfortable. It makes me angry that certain people just let her get away with it. 

Then…. My manager took me aside and said she was disappointed in me and thinks I need to mature which she has said before but unfortunately it doesn’t happen overnight.

Kick a girl whilst she’s down eh? 

I guess I was just feeling emotional today. My lenses were playing up but more importantly, I feel isolated at work. I feel like I can’t talk or trust anyone without it backfiring. 

Hey ho. just a bad day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. 

I came home, watched me before you and had a good cry which always helps ๐Ÿ™‚

I recently had an annual review at work and was told I need to work on my maturity for work and personal  

What does that mean?

Well, for personal to me it means growing up and pushing myself out of my comfort zone as much as I hate it because deep down, its good for you and you learn from it and become better. 

Becoming less shy and timid and just going for it and to stop apologising for being me because I’m great and the world should know about it.

Work maturity, to me means behaving professionally and making the best of situations. Analysing them and removing myself if bad and managing others. 

I need to change how I think and become more business oriented. Challenge accepted. 

Now lets go out and own this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this photo. It’s very cute but real. Big scary lions were once cute little kittens.

It’s the same with human beginnings too. We were once babies, children, teenagers before we got to adulthood. Not saying we are scary (some definitely are!)

I’ve recently been given more responsibility at work, when I say responsibility I mean I’ve been given another department to look after which is great because it means they must like me enough and trust me enough to do this.

Taking on new bits on top of current stuff slowly and doing more. I really do feel like I’m bettering myself if that’s a thing. For awhile I’ve been thinking “oh I’m not valued enough here” or “I work hardย and no-one notices” or “I’m being taken for a mug here”

Which is a normal thing to feel after you’ve been in the same job for a few years and I was starting to look elsewhere when this opportunity lands on my lap.

I’ll be even busier than usual and hopefully will be valued a bit more. I may be young but I’m not an idiot. There are definitely a few people at my work who because they’re older, think they know better than me. Ageist grannies.

I’m not saying I know everything because I definitely don’t and I still have lots to learn but some of the stuff I do actually know. My manager told me in my last review that I should stand up for myself if I think I’m right but it’s sods law the one time you do it and you’re actually wrong… that worries me.

But yeah, work is getting a bit better at the moment. I’m not hanging around with some of the people who use to bring me down. I’m feeling a lot happier but also tired. You never really notice how tiring learning and concentrating can actually be!

Onwards and upwards to an improved me with new skills ๐Ÿ™‚
