What are you willing to die for? This may seem like too serious of a question for those simply defending themselves against unfair treatment at work, but it’s one that must be considered. Employees who find themselves suffering in the workplace often fail to heed the advice of experts to leave their toxic environments. And understandably so. There are countless reasons we become attached to our jobs. And even more reasons we fight to stay…including the sheer injustice of what we’re facing.
Not ready to forgive those that hurt you at work? That doesn't mean you can’t experience freedom from your pain and return to enjoying life again! Forgiveness can be a touchy subject for those of us that have experienced workplace abuse, especially when the cruel actions of others have altered our life in so many ways. Adding to the difficulty is that workplace bullying targets seldom, if ever, receive acknowledgment from the ones that caused so much harm.
