So I am heading back to my workplace which has turned into a nightmare. One of my co-workers said it best last week when she said it was like "going to a funeral every single day." It gets old. I am very busy, and will try to focus on the work and being an asset however I can. I would say that I would try not to get "sucked into the negative energy" or something like that, but it is such a judgmental and negative thing to say about people I love who have just found out they have lost their jobs. Of course they are going to be not acting their best! I can listen to them and care about them even though they are not bringing me joy - it is the least I can do.
And it is from hard experience that I know I can do that. I remember how it felt to be at the bottom of a pit and have people tell me that they just couldn't be my friend because I was so negative or it was a bummer man or something like that.
Thank God it is now and not then. May God bless you and keep you - until then.
