All You Are Is Mean

Ever have a coworker who is just MEAN!? I do. And let me tell you. . . She is MEAN!! 

We all have our fights to battle in life which is understandable but taking it out on someone who doesn't even have any part in your problems is unacceptable. Spreading rumors and bashing someone is no way to treat anyone. At all.'

 I didn't know what to do for the longest time. I tried different ways to approach her and her meanness. But it just didn't work. So I finally decided that enough is enough and went to the boss man. I told him the problems that she has been blaming on me and the rumors she has been spreading  and that even though I'm not the only one she is mean to I get the brunt of it all since I have to work side by side with her.

Let me tell you. It was a relief. I felt better and more confident than I ever have before with situations similar to this. I told my wellness coach what happened and how I dealt with it and she was very proud of me :) She said that she could tell that standing up for myself was a very empowering moment and feeling for me. Which is true!! 

If I could tell my coworker how I felt about her there would be many curse words and fists flying in the air. So instead I decided that my favorite female artist, Taylor Swift, will say it for me.
