In A Bad Space, But Sticking To It:)

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Today started off good, but the mood changed midday for me. I think that being in an office and working alone is starting to get to me. I love working on my own, but sometimes the isolation makes me feel disconnected and I am one of those people that needs to be connected for me to thrive. I am a nurturer and need to nurture people but I don't have that type of job. Today, I felt like I was not up to par and there is a lack of confidence by others for me to take on bigger assignments. I know that this is not good for me because I start to feel stifled. I have learned that there are different rules for different people. I am too old to be going through this again. Still, I stuck to my eating plan and did not overdo anything food wise.

    Thank you for the comments. I am looking forward to being on team Emerald as well, and thanks for the advice about getting out and joining people, I have been making my way around the buildings and chatting with people just to get to know them, most have been welcoming, some have made the situations awkward. I'm not good with awkward. I just can't take sitting in a cubicle for 8 hours, it is just not the thing for me to do. I just don't like isolation. Happy Sparking:)

    I agree with the two set of rules but it seems to me it is more like thousands of different rules depending on so many things. Some like age, (if a woman) was she wearing makeup, how dressed, smiles, tone of voice on and on depending on the person or group judging.
    We humans are so rough on each other huh?

    sticking to your plan is great!!! seems the best we can do is our best when we can! I look forward to having you on the Emeralds and getting to know you better.

    You know yourself quite well and I can relate to that feeling. Some times, you just need to get out and work the room, other offices or whereever the people are. Taking breaks when others do and huddle around the water fountain or wherever that may be for you. I have also, moved from a cubicle into an office and enjoy keeping my door open fo rthose who choose to, to come visit, escape and/or vent if they so choose. Some things, we don't get used to however we change our attitudes. Give it a chance! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
