Do you recognise the following.
You’ve a partner, a lovely child and most things aren’t running smoothly these days. You’re not feeling down or depressed but you’re quickly irritated, a bit tensed and anxious. Your spouse feels that situation and talks with you about it. You wave the problems away telling they don’t exists.
At work you’re having a busy period. Several major decision are made for you and you’re about to tell some employees that they might lose their job.
It isn’t your call but yet you’re feeling uncomfortable with the whole situation.
Time comes closer for those bad-news-conversations. You’re wondering if you should have done something to prevent the lose of jobs.
You think you did the best you could but in your mind there still are doubts. You over look the whole situation again. You talk at home about it and you even consult some friends. They tell you that you shouldn’t worry to much. Easier said then done.
At home things are running smoothly. There are no problems between you and your spouse. You are able to keep work and private situation separated from each other.
In the mean time days, weeks run by and D-days approaches. You are starting to feel worser and worser.
You know this most been done, it’s for the benefit of the company. But still ……..
The whole situation reminds you of a period a few years ago. You also weren’t feeling well, but you couldn’t relate it to a specific moment. The not-so-feeling-good period didn’t last a long time.
You went on with your life as thing improved by themselves.
Just now you think of that period again and wonder what you did then to find more peace at mind.
