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!

Thanks for reading!

    We need another blog to tell us about the new store and promotion. Hope you vacation was great and the stress is gone! Meditation is great at stress reduction (along with lots of other things). I've managed to meditate every day (some days twice) since July 31st.

    Enjoy your vacation - sounds like you need it!!! Just enjoy your time off and don't let the stress of the promotion get to you while you're gone. Just remember you can't do anything about it on vacation! Congrats on that promotion too! Hang in there, take your vacay, and come back refreshed and raring to take on that promotion! Have fun! :)

    I hope the promotion works out well. I hope you're able to head off some of the stress and tension at home so that you and SO can be on the same team. You're there to support each other. But you know that.

    Keep us posted.

    Cheers,

    Congrats on the promotion! I'm sure that it is highly deserved.

    Easier said than done, I know, but try to leave the stress of the unknown aside and just concentrate on the here and now. You're going on vacation and you just got a promotion and you have a great honey and you just need to MELLOW THE #$%@ OUT!

    There--problem solved. You're welcome.
