I bet you can name at least one person who’s let you down at some point in your life.
Maybe it was a friend, a family member, your colleague or your partner.
I recall this one particular time I was let down...
My manager and boss were discussing my job performance with me over the last year. I was eagerly waiting (in anticipation for praise) for my manager to share with my boss how I had been doing some of her work for her while my manager was working on another project…. I waited, and waited, and waited.
I was completely blind-sided - it did not come.
Not only did it not come, but my manager did not praise or recognise all the overtime I’d done, just to get her work done.
Has something like that ever happened to you?
I thought I would not get blind-sided like that again, but motherhood is rife with blind-sides…things that you didn’t see coming e.g.
“Opportunities for growth” (a.k.a. – “bloody hard-work!”)
