When I've experienced those type situations on the job, I discovered that there is only two things that I can change:

1. I can change jobs.
2. I can change my thoughts -- which will change my attitude and the way that I feel in the particular situation.

Near the bottom of the page that deals with Resentments in the BB, is where I found the method to change my thoughts.

After I changed my thoughts, which changed the way that I felt about the situation -- I recognized that -- to be true to myself -- I was going to have to change jobs also. So, I quit that job.

When I experienced those type situations as a business owner... I had the option of:

1. Change my thoughts.
2. Change the employee -- by replacing them with one that I could work with.

BTW: After I changed my job -- and changed my thoughts and changed my attitude -- I came to believe that it was the Universe's way of letting me know that I had stayed at that job for too long and that it was time for me to move on towards the attainment of my Life purpose and my goals.


I understand how miserable the feelings can be during those type adventures... they suck. But, we do have the tools and the ability to change our thoughts -- so that we can endure those situations with serenity, peace of mind, and the knowledge that God is still able to assist us and will assist us -- if and when our time comes to move on.

Best wishes for you!
