So I worked at a job for five years, and worked my way up to management. This place broke me, threw me out, and destroyed me. my mental health was at an all time high before working there, and then almost a year later after I stepped down, this company still has control over me. I hate it. I haven’t been able to get mental health back to where it once’s was. I was bullied emotionally and almost physically. yet, when I reported it, that bully stayed and got promoted and I got an emotional intelligence book thrown at me.
I got a message today from a coworker from there. I have told them what I went through, and thought they understood! guess not. I woke up to there message stating how much there respected and loved there and how it’s the most amazing place to work! and the iceing on the cake? I was 3 levels up from her and there was only .25 cents difference. ( she left and came back) I broke myself for .25 more... am I crazy to be upset by this..
throughout my 5 years I was cornered by two management staff, unable to leave the room, for reporting mangment calling there employee bitches, I was sent to another store and thrown an emotional intelligence book because I came forward to stop the emotional abuse and prevent physical abuse. I have been cursed at, degraded, and even had my sexuality in question ( walked out of the washroom, to find girls gossiping to see if they can figure out my sexuality) and been told time and time again there sorry for everything that happened
yet all I wanted was to be respected & appreciateed.
I just don’t know what to do.. #workplacebullying #Depression #self-sabotage #Selfworth #ToxicRelationships
