its been a while but today was a really good day for me. i had been having some trouble with this guy i work with being very rude to me and bossing me around and trying to belittle me. i got fed up with it and pulled him to the back of the store and talked to him personally. its funny how these ppl put up these fronts but he almost broke down right in front of me. he couldnt even look me in the eyes and his voice was shaking when he was talking back. he was so used to thinking that i was just going to lay down and take it and i actually got a kick out of seeing him unravel. i was amicable about everything and just told him in a stern fashion that it needed to stop immediately. idk what it was but once i walked away and got back to work it was like i literally felt this weight lifted off my shoulders. the day went so smoothly and i even noticed i was being a little more playful and social with some of my coworkers. im def. not cured after one day, but i hope that in time i have more positive experiences like this and it will help me come out of my shell a little more. thanks for reading, i hope in some way this helps someone.
