Even more than forced discussions of woke books, one thing that I hate at work is when we have to get together and “share our struggles.” We are supposed to sit there, for two endless hours, talking about how stressed out and miserable we are at work.
I’m not, though. I’m perfectly fine. I’m energized and enjoying myself. And if I weren’t fine, I’d find comfort in NOT slobbering over colleagues and moaning like a pathetic victim. If I’m unhappy, I have people in my life to go to for support. I don’t need to turn the workplace into a slobberfest.
Why don’t more people take pride in remaining professional in workplace settings?
