I spent 2 years working for my not-so-great-boss before I finally said to myself,
"Get out of here. It isn't worth it."
Unfortunately, even though I was free of her physically, I wasn't free of her emotionally.
She was like a monkey on my back that just wouldn’t get off.
She showed up in my dreams.
She showed up in my job interviews.
She showed up when I met new people and they asked what I did.
She showed up on Facebook as a possible "friend."
She had RUINED my career and there was no way this lady would ever be my friend. I could never forgive her for what she had done to me.
Finally, about 7 months after I quit, I knew that I needed help. My initial anger had turned into resentment and bitterness and they were consuming me. I had become the negative person that people didn't want to be around. And to top that off, my new boss had to talk to me about my “attitude” which had developed because of my situation with my former boss.
She was everywhere, even though she was nowhere.
That is when I started the process of shifting my relationship with myself and with her (and she didn't even know it). It is when I started to see that my negativity and judgments were only hurting me. It is when I started to see that by forgiving her, I was actually setting myself free.
I called it my BAD BOSS DETOX.
Now I have created a program for other people to go through, so that they too can go through their own BAD BOSS DETOX.
