I completely understand. I am so sorry you went through what you did. It is very hard to stay positive in an environment like that. I pray things get better for you as well.

Two years ago I slammed into a career brick wall and was bullied. I decided I wasn't going to be quiet (passive) anymore... it's been a slow transition for me, but I am wielding my power, there has been retaliation and its awful. "Nevertheless she persisted". I am still in it, but step by step moving forward to a safe, supportive workplace where I can thrive. Wishing you the same. Yes, you deserve better.

I am very sorry to hear you feel this way. We are our biggest hinderance. It may seem hopeless or you are scared to make the necessary changes. Going to a place that makes you feel this way is not a healthy place. You have to believe you deserve respect, and demand it Believe in yourself and know that there is always better opportunities. Know your worth and own it This may be the time to make that change. Living the way you described is a toxic environment and requires change. Speak up if you plan to stay or it's time to move on to bigger and better things.

I am so sorry! It's horrible to feel like that and shame on anyone for treating anyone with such little regard. You absolutely deserve better and knowing that is a really great motivator! I hope you use all those bad feelings to fuel your search for a new job. It takes time and hard work, but it will be so worth it! Only you can change your situation. And while it may be scary or intimidating, life is too short to spend it being miserable with people who don't deserve you.

Thank you. I agree. I have been searching high and low for a new job but lack some qualifications and with the pandemic it almost seems impossible. I do not wish to be a cashier anymore. I have been in retail for over 12 years I am so ready to step into a career. I just pray something opens up soon.

Hi there, It's really hard to see pathways forward when you are feeling stuck in a negative spiral. Sending good thoughts your way. You have everything you need inside of you to make the change you seek - you just need to learn how to use it. I really recommend this book for you, it will help you separate what beliefs, actions, and ultimately outcomes are within your control, and which are best let go to support your growth: Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow https://www.amazon.com/Change-Your-Mind-Life-Follow/dp/1573242136

This is an awful way to feel and props to you for sharing how you are feeling. While I do not know the specifics of your situation, it feels like you have been in numerous potentially toxic environments and it is taking a toll on you, which is understandable. You do have a voice and are using it here. Are there other people or places you can talk this through? Or write it out? Getting everything out on “paper” or with a trusted person may allow you to see patterns and find ways to heal. And move forward. Bottom line, you deserve to be heard and respected. We all do.

Yes, ma'am. It has been a terrible 4 years working with this company. I started as a PRN and worked my way up to a Specialist. Many people didn't like this decision and felt that employees that there longer were looked over and they made my life terrible and eventually I was bullied me out of the position, which still sits vacant. Each department I go to I am mistreated and it is swept under the rug. I was just pushed out of my timeslot at my current job because someone in a higher position wanted a certain person in that spot. The issue is, it was already occupied. By me.

No ma'am. I do not want to be the victim. I completely understand where you are coming from. It's just really hard. I've been messed over numerous times and am afraid of the consequences of standing up for myself.
