So it wasn’t long ago I was in a toxic relationship, not the kind that comes to mind when people say they were in a toxic relationship. This one was in the workplace. I was apart of an unhealthy work environment.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved most of my colleagues. I miss working with them dearly, they made the days bearable. Unfortunately, one of my colleagues was a royal donkey. There is nothing worse than your manager being narcissistic pain in the bottom. Whilst we tried HR mediation, it doesn’t work when your manager thinks he is better than whatever session/training, it also doesn’t help if the company doesn’t really want to address the problem but instead just wants to sweep it under a rug.
I stayed longer than I should have because of my work friends. They made every day enjoyable to be there, we had a real sense of team, I really enjoyed work with them and I miss the dynamic we had. Even more so when thinking about it I have total FOMO.
Finally, I made the move to change jobs and it was the best decision I have ever made. I have never been happier. I can honestly say I love my job. I love going to work, I love being at work and more importantly it gives me motivation to get up in the morning.
On the back of this I wanted to share with you the signs it’s time to move on.
The same signs apply for personal relationships too not just business.
It’s never too late to take that step to get out of a toxic relationship and the earlier you do it the more you will thank yourself for doing it and the better off you will be.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
