Being humble and patient
Yesterday I was really upset when I posted that long career change post because of some bad experiences at work. My work environment is very chain-command oriented and people boss each other a lot. If you know me well, you know that I hate confrontations and being told what to do (bossy pants personalities), unless of course it is my manager, who is a lovely woman whom I thoroughly respect. My main issue is with my co-workers (all older than me by 10+ yrs), who tend to think I am a child and have no respect for what I do or say, and its frustrating because we have to work together.
I honestly do love nursing, forget my rant yesterday, I get very good feedback from my patients and that’s what’s important, co-workers will never be a “package from heaven”, so I will fix my attitude and keep doing what I do best and remember what’s important and what’s not.
Sorry mum for my weird mood swings 🙂 but you would understand if you saw what I deal with everyday. Even though this blog is supposed to be my happy place where I forget my work frustrations, sometimes its good to put things out of your system and see what goes on in your head when you re-read them, and as a way to share things/connect with my friends/family who live far away from me, and will always help me put things into perspective. I hope this weird stage of career stagnancy will soon pass because I am losing my mind……………in a very bad way
