Drama at work today - - a co-worker called a department meeting and started blaming other staff for negative attitudes. She publicly "called me out" and I responded calming and appropriately. I spoke my mind and it was not flattering to her. Normally, I would obsess all day about this, but when I walked out of the meeting, I found that I didn't need to be right, didn't need to make her wrong and I was so very proud of myself! I used to have the tendency to let people run over me and feared confrontation. All I could think is that this is not my normal reaction and my "new world" is pretty good! I think I have my stress management techniques and the success in my program to thank. She didn't do her job and I wasn't going to take that responsibility from her. This is the new me and I like her! She is a warrior!
