We had a gathering today for the manager that’s leaving and I have mixed feelings about it. I see him leaving as the closing of one door and the opening of another.

I thought I’d learned how to deal with change after the thing that happened last year. But maybe I was wrong.
How can you feel in control of your life when changes you may not agree with just keep on coming and bowling you over?
I guess I could learn how to dodge better…
I just don’t understand the petty mentality of some people. It’s like if you don’t like doing something, just don’t. You’ll do yourself and everyone else a favour. Don’t work somewhere if you no longer want to be there. Just leave. You will only annoy your colleagues by cutting corners as you try to “1up” your employer. Just grow a pair, please.
Two work mates confided in me today about their work-related relationship issues. They are people I like and get on well with, I guess.
Part of me feels weird that they chose me to confide in because I mostly keep to myself. I come to work to work, you know? I don’t like getting involved in people’s personal issues. That said, I would never turn a friend away if they asked for my help.
Perhaps those attributes are exactly why people trust me because I keep things to myself and I genuinely care. I am also a good listener and sometimes, that’s all you need to feel better; for someone to actually listen, for someone to care, even if it’s temporary.
Maybe I do have the makings of a work counselor after all 😁
An update on my previous post when I discussed having a migraine every day for a week 😑
I went to my GP who knows my migraine history and asked him about increasing my meds to try and combat the attacks. After some tests, he was happy to increase the dosage of one of my meds. I am happy to say this is day three migraine-free 😁
Crossed fingers it continues to work 🤞
