Bullying IN the workplace!

bullying

Hello, I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday, as promised I will be sharing my experience with bullying in the work place, I think at one point in time we have all dealt with situations like this at work and it’s all you handle them and how you choose to rise above it. I will never condone bullying in any shape or form period weather it’s at work, school or in a public setting it’s never ok.

My story..

I had my daughter in 2017 of March as I’ve stated in previous post, i worked until February before choosing to take maternity leave but before going out things at my Job were a little rocky. The crazy part is I had a baby shower and of course all my friends and family were there so of course naturally i chose to invite my co workers. The shower went amazing everyone had a great time (during my leave someone was hired to fill in for me) she was ok at the time or at least I thought she was but that’s a whole other story.

Going back to work..

So in May I went back to work thinking everything was going to be great come to find out my position had been given away to the other employee and I was told my job would be the same also they had me in an office doing paper work all day, Everything was different now my boss was mean to me so we’re the other two girls at the desk mind you I never did anything to these girls I hadn’t seen them in months due to having my daughter. It was constant torture having them be mean to me day in and day out at the time my only friend was the phlebotomist who worked in the lab she always took up for me and told me it would be ok( we no longer speak due to unfortunate circumstance but I will tell that story in another post) I was crying all the time, telling my mom how I hated my job it was horrible.

Some things, I wish I did different..

So being petty and fed up I will not lie I did run to Facebook and post some things that I should have not about the girls only because I was fed up at the time I’m not condoning my behavior at all I understand it was wrong, however one of my co workers took it upon herself to tell my boss some things that were said and I ended up in her office we talked I apologize she apologized and we left it there but still the drama continued for a while longer until the phlebotomist quit and then the girl who took my position left work and I got my Original job back.

Where I’m at now..

So basically I’m still at my Job and I love the doctor I work for a lot and I get along with all the girls now,we no longer have any drama everything’s been great, I will say this SOME of the drama was coming from the phlebotomist at the time she was stirring the pot ( a lot of he say she say) and I really believed she was my friend at the time, she turned out not to be it turns out her and the girl who was doing my job were nothing but mean girls scheming together and they both did things that were not nice against me witch is why I choose not to deal with them now at all. They were trying to pit me against my manager and other co workers who I had known way longer.( this still does not excuse the fact that my manager and co workers still played a role here too)

Why I won’t tolerate bullying..

I don’t like bullies and I hate People who bully others it’s not ok ever and all though I have forgiven my co workers, I will never forget what was done to me. You should never ever make someone feel bad about who they are, the situation really messed with my anxiety and took a huge toll on me mentally and physically. so I wish this on no one remember if you are being bullied speak up and say something do not allow it and if you see someone getting bullied you should speak up don’t allow it to keep happening because so many people wait till it’s too late and someone ends up hurt or even dead and that’s never ok, respect each other always.

Stand against bullies please and enjoy your Sunday because it’s back to work tomorrow. So get your rest in.

Why I chose to go back to school/How it helped me with my career.

career

For a really long time, I was extremely confused on what I wanted to do with my life I worked a bunch of odd jobs(fast food,retail) those jobs never paid enough and I was tired of worrying about money and being unhappy with my career/job choice but before I go any further let me back this story up a little

I remember when I turned 18 my parents had my future pretty much planned out for me they wanted me to go to college even though that’s not what I wanted but I caved in anyway and went, at that time my major was nursing but again I was miserable with the whole college thing. I made plenty of friends and had great professors but my mind wasn’t in to it and I would of rather been somewhere else.

I started skipping classes and pretending like I had gone to school,when clearly I wasn’t going at all and I found myself lying to my parents about my education on top of that my grandmother passed away from breast cancer during that time so my mind wasn’t their anymore, it got to the point where school was no longer apart of me and I decided to leave school and find myself a job but working back in fast food didn’t last long. I was tired of making minimum wage and dealing with rude customers, I stuck it out for two years and then one day I decided school was where I needed to be.

I went to plenty of private colleges until I fell upon fortis, it was a great fit for me I loved the staff and I felt like I could get a great eduction there. I’ve always wanted to help others so when my financial advisor told me about the medical assisting program I immediately decided that’s what I wanted to do, I signed up and started classes the following month, it was a great experience and I met a lot of great people. I went on to do my externship and got hired, I now work for a great doctor at a great medical facility and I love what I do. It’s never too late to go back to school, it’s never to late to chase your dreams and never give up on what you wanna do ever.

I’m completely happy with my decision and I love the career that I’m in and eventually I plan on going back to school for nursing (RN) so look out world 🌎 cherelle is coming for you.

Remember positivity/an open mind will

Get you places!
