I want to thank everyone who reached out to me yesterday. My manager apologized, not directly, but offered apologies to everyone. Lately, I think since this weather has been a roller coaster this winter, our emotions are following the trend.
It’s human nature to have disagreements. However, I’ve been learning that talking about our feelings are listening are a great way to come to a resolution. I asked a friend if I was inconsistent, she said yes and said it’s because I don’t really quite plan, have all these ideas and it’s hard for me to plan them all, and I don’t always listen. We talked it out, I saw where she was coming from and she saw where I was coming from. Our disagreement didn’t ruin a friendship, instead it brought us closer together. Honestly, I think that is the healthy way to handle such things.
I think in the future I will sit down with my manager and share how I’m feeling, now that I am in a better mood. I know it’s not necessary and I have a feeling other professionals would advise against it, but who knows? Like I shared with my therapist, I want to be honest about my feelings and I think that feeling the feels is a path towards and authentic life.
