  1. Great post!
    I don’t even know how I’ve kept my job for 3yrs!

    Two years of thinking I was crazy then coming to realize I was being lied too and only a year since divorce!

  2. That is tough. I had a very difficult two year divorce. At the time I was going through my divorce I had went from working 7p – 3a to 8a – 4p. I hated working days at first and couldn’t sleep. I’m a boss and I’m proud of the fact I didn’t take it out on my subordinates, like some other folks I have worked for. Everybody knew what was going on with me and was very supportive. I think it’s therapeutic to talk about it to others, just don’t be that whinny guy or gal that everybody will avoid. Time will heal these wounds and it will all be a terrible memory and work will go on.
