If you're feeling like a victimized by a difficult boss, the first place to look for a solution is within yourself. Remember, according to the Law of Attraction, we attract experiences and relationships that help us grow.
The last post, Get Your Unreasonable Boss Right-Sized
, was an exercise in helping you change your perspective and to level the playing field in your mind. Some things look better from a distance. Moving back emotionally allows you to put some spiritual space between your and a difficult situation. From that point, it's time to take a deeper look at you.
- What are your expectations of your boss?
- Does (s)he remind you of one of your parents?
- Are you replaying a childhood role in your relationship?
- Are your boss's expectations really unreasonable?
- What lessons are you supposed to learn from this relationship?
If your boss hurts your feelings, it's time to put one of the most valuable recovery principles into action: "It's a spiritual axiom that any time I am disturbed, there is something wrong with me." What is it?
- Is it my personal insecurity?
- Is it fear of losing my job?
- Is it my pride; do I have a problem with authority?
- What is it that if I would release it, I would be free?
- Again, how is this relationship meant to help me grow?
