Are You Walking On Eggshells?

You’ve probably seen posts on Facebook about how people hate going to work. Or their boss sucks. Or they feel like they’re stuck.

I saw a post recently from one of my friends that got me thinking. She said, “why do I tolerate the ongoing feeling that I have to walk on eggshells at my company? It feels like I can’t say or do anything right.” I replied to her post with a simple question, “why DO you tolerate it?”

I once had a job like this. No matter what I did, my boss always found fault – he was quick to criticize and not once did he ever pay me a compliment. I wish I could say that his criticism was constructive – after all, feedback that is meant to nurture is a good thing. But it was just mean-spirited. Luckily, I wasn’t at this company for very long, just a few weeks to be exact. I woke up one morning and decided that I didn’t have to endure the nonsense any longer.

We spend most of our lives working. It’s a reality that we’ve created for ourselves. My point is – if we’re going to spend most of our time working, shouldn’t we be happy doing it? If you can’t seem to ever please your supervisor, if he or she says no to anything new or different that you want to try, if the only time you hear from your boss is when they think you’ve screwed up, why stay there?

If you’re not working for a true leader, it may be best for you to move on to an organization that will appreciate your value.

Walking on eggshells all the time? Take the hint.

    So true. But the further along in your career the harder it can sometimes be (or at least it seems that way) to just wake up and stop the madness! “…not working for a true leader…” is definitely what some people need to come to realization of.
