Talking is so SO important.
I don’t think I can stress that enough.
When you bottle things up, internalize what you’re feeling, your body feels it.
You’re punishing yourself because you don’t let go.
(Cue Frozen – let it goooo 🎶)
Tonight, the air was cleared.
I’ve been feeling tension for a while, with no real explanation as to why or what caused it.
And finally, the truth came out.
Yes, it takes for an action to occur in order for it to be rectified, but that’s exactly what happened.
I like to think of myself as somebody who is nonconfrontational, I don’t like to start shit.
I feel that as an intellectual human, an adult, I should be able to converse in a calm manner, address the problem and create a resolution to solve that problem.
A few months back, for those of you just joining in (heeyy!), I was promoted at work and became the front desk manager.
Or to glorify the title – Client Services Manager.
I took the position mainly for the extra cash, not gonna lie.
But, being the oldest receptionist there, it only made sense that I would assume the position.
Anyway, since the promotion, we’ve lost some employees and have gained new employees.
While there haven’t been any true issues, there was only one.
I could feel this inexplicable tension between me and another. And for the life of me, I couldn’t place my finger on it as to why.
Today, we both let our emotions get to us and it finally led to us having a talk.
When you hear the words “we need to have a talk” come from somebody’s mouth, you truly don’t know what to expect.
Your nerves hit you and worry takes over.
But when it’s necessary and the outcome is nothing but positive, you can move forward, get over the hump and move past the problem.
I can only hope that next week will be the start to a change, fingers crossed 🤞🏼.
‘Till next post ✌🏼
