I frequently hear from people experiencing toxic work environments or abusive relationships with colleagues or even their bosses. The words in this post contain a spontaneous note from a high-level professional letting me know that in the midst of the insanity of her work environment, she felt understood.
I responded back with a note that said:
“I am so glad you feel seen. I hope you are able to get to a better situation. If there’s anything I can do please let me know. All the best. And remember, it’s not you.”
I hope she, and you, reach out when you are ready to create a new path to your personal success.
The number of people experiencing such a toxic, even abusive, work environment or relationships is very high. Staying in such a situation takes a toll. It’s traumatizing. That trauma can have lasting effects.
It’s even more traumatizing and detrimental to long-term mental health when it goes unrecognized. My articles on the subject have comforted many people over many years as noted by the letters, emails, and calls I receive from people thanking me for acknowledging THE TRUTH about their situation. As you can see in the spontaneous note above.
If you are in such a situation, it’s important you seek support. Stay in touch with healthy people. Keep taking self-care measures—it’s essential.
Then I’m here for a Complimentary Call when you are ready to get expert help to carve out a new career path. Be determined to heal and move on in your career and personal life.
