An Observation About Standing Your Ground

HSP Observations

Hey, I think I’ve evolved a little! Work today involved an almighty email conflict when a colleague wanted me to do A, because “I say so” (sic.), and I wanted to do B, for actual, practical reasons. The colleague in question is, um, domineering, and kicked up a huge fuss, involving two more colleagues plus the boss. Boss ruled in my favour, which led to an even bigger conflict, accusations of favouritism, passive aggressiveness, direct aggressiveness, and general bad behaviour.

I’ve had heart palpitations all day, I’m stressed to the max, and dread meeting the colleague later this week, but not once did I consider backing down to avoid the conflict.

Now, if I could only learn to deal with the aftermath in a healthy way I’d be golden. My coping mechanism tonight is a ton of ice cream.
