>I read a quote tonight that I believe suites me and my current situation extremely well.
“don’t mistake my shyness for weakness”
It basically sums up whats happening to me at my current job. I am typically a quiet person, I have always been- but I think its my turn to stand up for myself and what I want, or Im just going to continue to be stomped on. Its like my mom said “if you stay there then its your fault for allowing it”. Ill be damned it Im about to let that happen.
I dont let people talk down to me in every day life- but for some reason I am letting it be acceptable at work, which is very unlike me- because if you treat me wrong or someone I care about I will let you know in a heartbeat. But for some reason I am putting up with it for this job…
I am torn between what could be, and what is. When is it enough, when is it time to throw in the towel? I want this SO badly- but in the same sense, its almost painful the stress that it is causing. Not the job itself, but certain people, critical people. And to answer the obvious question, there is NO HR department- this is a small business of less that 5 people, not that I am making this ok- but I just am at a point where I need to make major decisions about this, and I think its one that Im not going to like…..
Where oh where should I go from here?
