Hard week.....

I have had a tremendously hard week. Most of it can't be discussed here, but it has left me down. I could sense that something was off in my department, there was tension that was almost palpable. Everyone felt it, everyone reacted to it. By Thursday I was miserable, because I knew something bad was going to happen, it was just a matter of when. Friday I had made it most of the day, and nothing had happened, and it felt different, like a decision was made. Unfortunately, the decision was that someone had to be fired (not me), and it was a good friend. She may have made some grievous mistakes, and some of them could have happened because of bad equipment. I will never know the absolute truth, and the outcome is the same regardless. I feel vulnerable. I know that every job has the chance of being laid off, being let go, etc. This situation has brought that fear to fore front on my thinking. I feel bad for my supervisor as she didn't make the decision lightly and I could tell she felt like hell about it. I of course worry about my friend as now she has to face finding a job in a shaky economy, and trying to explain why she was let go on her resume. I take everything to heart, I want to fix this, but I am unable to.

Life is difficult.

:-/ I'm sorry about that, Georgia. Sounds like a very tough situation! My sister is going through similar issues at her workplace and she's been very upset by having her friends leave and her job security threatened. It's not a good feeling. And you're right, it's one you can't do much about. Best wishes towards finding some peace in all of this!

Thank you for the support. I am lucky, I still have my job, I just hate seeing anyone unhappy.

Georgia, this sounds like a very difficult situation for everyone involved. Sadly, there are times when all we can do is pray and hope that the person on the short end of the stick, for whatever the circumstances, will keep the faith. Here's hoping your dark skies will lift soon!

I am sorry you had a bad week! life is indeed difficult, like today was not a good day for me at all, got injured at work, and had a very rude insulting customer on my etsy site who was not happy with her pillows she bought from me, and for good measure she felt like she had to insult my work, it was awful! I almost cried, but I didn't want to waste tears over something like that, I am as optimistic as I can be since alot of aspects in my life as very negative, but being this optimistic can be exhausting and soul draining...keep your head up, things always gt better!
