Work Life Seeping into Your Home Life
Tuesday, August 17, 2010
Work has been all over the place the last few weeks. I have been up for a promotion for a while now and have been really wanting one. Well my supervisor tells me "you're getting promoted and blah blah blah." Then upper management says another thing. Then a different member of upper management tells me a third thing. It has been very frustrating.
I finally get told today that I am being promoted and that I start in a week at my new store (I am on vacation next week, so can't start while I am gone!). I am not to be told exactly where I am going, though. This is super frustrating because it would be nice to at least know what kind of a situation I am getting into!
I find that all of this stress and confusion is seeping into my home life. I am trying to be the happy and cheerful me that I usually am, but it has been very difficult. I am tending to lash out at my SO at the slightest provocation, which is definitely not the next right thing. It has just been so difficult and it is hard not to take it out on someone. I suppose that I have just talked myself into giving an amends, which is probably for the best. Maybe it will make me feel better and help me move forward and deal with this stress in a more productive manner!
