7th December - a little hiccup

Headline:

"Irish Charity leaves Single Mother go 3 days before Christmas"

Could you even imagine that??? They wouldn't, would they? Well I can tell you, yes they can!!! I have been given notice today, that my contract will not be renewd on the 22nd of December. The reason? Not for my lack of work, not for lack of puntuality but as a few of you reading this will know, for being bullied. I stood up to the person that bullied me and it has been thrown back in my face. I was told he can no longer work with me..... So there you go!

I still reckon, if you are being bullied you have to face up to them, for so long i got stressed because i let bosses Bully me, in fear of loosing my job.... ok i know i still lost my job in this case but i took the control back. I'm am very proud of the way i handled this as its only a job!!! My mental health is much more important.

I'll be celebrating with my gorgeous daughter tonight by eating chinese and drinking beer. Christmas will be a little smaller but i have been given the best gift today. Self Esteem.

Couldn't put it better myself Eva, Lol! Was explaining to my DH the other night that no value can be put on self esteem and self respect. It might be perverse to say but I'm delighted for you and I have no doubt you'll find someone who will appreciate and respect your energy.

Oh Eva, that's a disgrace - but there's got to be somewhere where all your gifts and talents and dedication will really be appreciated. And you're right, self-worth is important, and also too fragile to take a lot of knocks, so better off out of it.

Well done woman, it takes a lot of courage to stand up to a bully. You're better off out of that job - who needs that kind of hassle. You should feel really proud of yourself for what you said.

I know I have said this to you already, but you are worth so much more. I am so proud of you for standing up for yourself, you just never know what tomorrow will bring and you have a very bright future ahead of you. Onwards and upwards :-)

NO job is worth putting up with that kind of verbal abuse - so Three Cheers to you for sticking up for yourself - and I also think it sends a positive message to Shona - letting her see that it is NOT okay to allow anyone to treat you with such disrespect and that it IS okay to stand up for what you believe in - Hugs to you - Donna!
