Put a bunch of strong-willed, opinionated & ambitious women in a small office for a few years and there is bound to be a little tension. Throw in the fact that it's a small town and a very SMALL OFFICE where everyone knows everyone business and it could get a little out of control.
The past few weeks at work have been really hard. Personalities clashed, gossip was spreading and feelings were being hurt. It was all getting to be a little much.
I'm usually pretty good at not letting that sort of stuff bother me.
I do have to see these people everyday, and in all honestly, I don't have anything against them personally. But with pressure on me at home dealing with my husband & son and THEIR issues, it felt very overwhelming.
Yesterday, after a very long week... something happened. I won't get into the "incident" but I can say that tears were shed and a lot of us were finally able to get a lot of stuff of our chests...
It was an emotionally draining day, but I am hoping this will change the atmosphere in our office for the better. It's a great place to work, and the people are amazing... we lost sight of the importance of camaraderie & teamwork. I am hoping we will begin to respect each other again and put our work first and feelings second.
Has anyone else dealt with some difficult time at the office?
