The truth is....

Thursday, November 07, 2013

I couldn't say much and still really can't, but the truth is I haven't been at work for a week. I believe much of this, if not all of it, stems from my former colleague. All of the "complaints" were unfounded and no shred of truth could be found so I was slated to go back to work today. I was still quite pissed with the whole proceedings, so I took today as a "mental health" day.

I went for a short run, 4.5 miles, this morning. Met a friend I hadn't seen in 18 years for coffee, finished up some necessary paperwork dealing with this mess, and watched my daughters' soccer team play their last home game. We had a three generation dinner and then I went to check on the younger daughter's horse.

I had a full and relaxing day. Now I head back to work and face all the speculations, gossip and questions that's been brewing for a week. There's nothing to tell. I did nothing, they found nothing and nothing happened. End of the story.

Oh, I wish it were that easy! I saw a great quote on facebook. It said, "Don't tell me what THEY said, until you tell me what YOU said to defend me." That about sums it up, doesn't it? emoticon

At least my weight stayed on the low end of my range and I got some great runs in this week! Oh and I got to Spark, too!

    The truth is some people are so unhappy with their lives and jealous of those that are happy. They have to create drama in hopes of bringing you down to their level of misery. The truth is also that YOU are a strong and wonderful woman who is not going to let someone else wreck what you got going on!

    I am confident that, in the end, common sense and justice will prevail. I'm an optimist, brought up on the belief that if you wait to the end of the story, you get to see the good people live happily ever after.

    You are a strong positive person. Just return to work and believe in yourself. This will all die down. You have been proven innocent and you deserve to be treated well at your job. Stay away from those negative people and focus on the ones who are supportive.

You have done an excellent job of handling stress in a healthy running and sparking.

    Hang in there! It will be hard to go back and face the situation, but getting back to work is a positive outcome after all... I hope your colleagues will be open to accept the truth instead of hanging on to speculations.

    Just do the best u can with the situation. Keep your head up high. Think positive thoughts and avoid becoming part of the fray. The best advice I would get at this time would be either this too shall pass look straight ahead and confront the issues in a reasonable way - also isn't life real. Keep laughing and don't let life get you down. You've got yourself, your family, and everyone on Spark supporting you!

    While I don't know the particulars (nor am I asking for them), I did live through more than a year of hell at work. It sucked hugely. I wish I had words of wisdom for you, but I don't. Hang in there. Hold your head high.

    I'm sorry for what you have been through and what you have to face. It will be tough but hold your head high. You know the truth, be confident in that.

I love that quote. I can think of dozens of times I could have used that. I'm going to remember that.

I'm glad you had a full, relaxing day. I will be thinking about you tomorrow. We are all with you!

    As long as you know the truth, who cares what others think!! Karma comes around to those who weave webs!
