Not everyone is blessed to work with a good boss. For most, work is tedious and stressful.
Common reason is not because of the nature of their job but because of their horrible bosses.
Every day, they would drag themselves to work with heaviness in their hearts.
They dread Monday.
They despise the mere sight of their office.
Have you ever been in a similar situation?
What do you do when you need the job so much but each day becomes a drag because you have to deal with your horrible boss?
When is the right time to leave and look for “greener pastures”?
Here are three Ways To Deal With Mean Bosses…
Remember your purpose
Maybe you need the experience as a stepping-stone to your ultimate dream career. Maybe you need the pay and the benefit. Maybe you want the exposure.
Whenever times become tough at the work place, remember the reason why you applied for the job in the first place.
Create an invisible emotional barrier around you
Hurting people hurt people. Rude people behave the way they do because of their existing personal issues.
Your happy disposition affects them because they may be struggling to be where you are. They may be feeling a pang of jealousy towards you. You may be reminding them of what they want to be (happy) or what they wish to have (joy).
Regardless, always remember not to take their unkind manner personally. Learn to distant yourself from the situation. Think before you react.
Is it really worth your energy and time?
If the pressure is too much, or if you feel like the relationship is becoming abusive, pack your things and leave. No amount of money is worth your self-respect and peace of mind.
Work as if you are working for the Lord and not for men
This verse has helped many struggling unhappy employees get through long days at the office. If you know you are working not for the applause and recognition of the world but for the glory of God, no task is too difficult for you.
Because you believe you are pleasing and giving honor to your Creator, you offer nothing but your excellence. After all, He deserves no less.
Just as in any relationship, know when to hold on and when to let go. You don’t have to endure working with mean people.
You spend majority of your time working. You might as well make it worth your while.
