Hi Neshie-

At night lately I never seem to have the energy to keep up with night crew. So I don't want to post and then just drop off in the middle when people are talking about things important to them! You know what I mean? Maybe I will drop in and say hi, but I feel pretty useless to others right now.

Hope you are okay...just signed on tonight so maybe I'll find out what's going on w/you when I get to the threads.

Hi Neshie and Ras,

What happened to you, Nesh? Hope you are out having a good Saturday night to lift your spirits. I stopped by and will check in again.

Ras, hope things are better than you thought at work. If you ever want to "talk" I'm all "ears."

hugs,
ella

Ella,

No, the management is very nice. The manager is very nice man, the supervisors are nice and sweet. It is just that as sensitive person, I tend to get overwhelmed with almost every thing that takes place in my life, be it transition, training, so many people.

Also, one of the co-workers is from my mother's cultural background. And since I had unpleasant relationship with my mom, I tend to get scared of her and she seems to be very friendly with me wanting to talk with me. I try to be nice but formal with her.

I am quiet person, too much excitement scares me off. Also, the fact that I know a trial is waiting for me makes me nervous. How do I cope with that?

Ella, you are warm, wise encourager. Please I need your support and insight honey?

Rasputin-

You don't owe this coworker a personal or closer relationship. Staying business like and pleasant is fine. Maybe after some time you will get to know things about her and these will differentiate her enough from your mom to make you feel more comfortable around her. But if she comes on strong, there are subtle ways of backing off without being offensive- and from your posts I know you are socially adept enough to do that.

Do you want to tell me about your trial and remind me of somethings that are especially troubling you? I'm a little self absorbed so I haven't been reading every thread. If there are no names on them, or if they don't appear to be something I can respond to... sometimes I don't get to them. It's hard to tell from subject lines.

hugs,
ella

write back <<====wow, flash back to writing notes in class.

Thank you honey for your quick response. I know I can always count on you warmth and love.

Well, I don't know yet what the trial is, I am not God! LOL However, I know that a spiritual trial is on its way to me and it can be difficult and harsh. This is what makes me nervous.

You are right about this co-worker! Otherwise, I enjoy almost every one. We seem to make a good teamwork. Our supervisors are friendly and warm.

How are doing honey? I hope all is well with you! Give me a quick clip about your latest news!

Ras-

I though maybe you were talking about a legal trial. Not that spiritual ones aren't difficult enough.

Let me tell you about one of my coworkers. When I first came to my workplace she was very much on my back about little tasks and "how we do things here," etc... I didn't quite like her tone with me, and one day I even snapped back and mentioned it to my boss. I think now, looking back, she was under a lot of stress finishing school and all. But I didn't know her, and she didn't know me. She may have thought I would be a slacker, dead weight and more responsibility would fall on her.

The other day, after my sister called crying, I felt very helpless because I didn't know how to console her about her boyfriend's death. I felt so bad for her, and she said something so touching like "Oh e-, I feel so awful because I know this is how YOU must feel all the time and it never goes away for you." When I hung up I burst into tears right in the middle of the office. My coworker gave me lots of hugs, talked to me, relieved me of my duty for the next hour so I could do work behind the scenes. Who knew she was so supportive and sweet? I didn't when I first met her. You never can tell. Who a person is one day isn't always a picture of their whole selves. Sometimes we see what we see because of our own filters.

I hope you continue to work well together . Good coworkers can make all the difference in a day's work.

Ella,

I am so thrilled things are working so marvelously AWESOME with a co-worker who seemed so sympathetic toward you. It is real blessing to have true friend both at work and in our personal life.

It must be our prayers here that brought all that breakthru in your life!!!

I pray that you will always encounter folks who will draw smile on your face.

Hope to continue this thread some other time!

Sweet Dreams!~Ras~
