I’m writing this post in real time and honestly I am not okay at the moment. It is really stressful being Black in Corporate America and treated like shit basically. I’ve been having an issue with someone at my job and I am basically not being heard, brushed off and so on. I’ve been requesting meetings to get this issue resolved but I have been brushed off again and honestly don’t know my next steps on what to do. I know my worth and really deserve so much better than this. It is hard trying to address this because I don’t want to come across as the “Angry Black Woman” or “Having A Bad Attitude” or “Being Too Much”. I deserve to be heard and feel like my concerns are just as valid as the other person’s.
Now I got that out, I am trying to get into a place where I am feeling okay. I do admit when I am not okay at times and I’m proud of myself for that. I can’t keep internalizing things and just saying I’m okay when I am not at all. It is not good for my mental health. I know one day I’ll find that workplace environment where I’m not dealing with workplace drama, harassment or bullying. It seems like that ideal place is working for myself which would be nice.
I know I may sound negative a lot of the time on here but it is just what I am currently going through. All this is temporary and better things are coming, I just know it. Life is basically being too much right now and I need her to stop like today lol. I hope all is going well for you and life is not being too much at the moment.
