Exactly a year ago today, I walked into my old firm clutching my “To whom it may concern letter”. I dug it out this morning, having half a mind to write a blog about the terrible things mentioned in it, and how I’d successfully moved on.
I forgot how unpleasant that letter is. The specifics are certainly too unpleasant for my blog. Not that I haven’t moved on, but the details remain upsetting. I signed off that letter saying I couldn’t take any more.
How I longed for this first anniversary to be triumphant!
I hoped to announce I’ve found a publisher. I hoped to say I’m 100% recovered and better than ever. But this is real life. I have a nasty case of tonsillitis. My whole head is aching and my throat is full of ground glass. I’m still hunting for a publisher after a most disappointing let down last week.
Looking on the bright side, however, I’ve still come a long way since that letter. Add to that the fact that the weather is a few degrees warmer and the sun is starting to shine. I’m hoping my recent illness and disappointments are just the last remnants of my own period of winter.
Bring on spring.
- Bullied By The Boss
- Welcome to my blog. My pen name is Eva James. I'm an aspiring writer paying the bills working as a legal secretary. Relentlessly bullied by my former boss, I looked for another job but the recession hit. Feeling trapped, I recorded everything in this blog, which serves as a revealing insight into workplace bullying. WEEK 1 starts the story and, as the weeks progress, you'll note what starts as banter soon spirals out of control. Sadly, it's all true. Whilst along the way I've found alternative employment, my passion for blogging about workplace bullying remains. Trevor Griffiths, legendary theatre, TV and film writer said at the outset, "I like the writing a lot: smart, cool, placed. If you were prepared/able to take your prick of a boss on, you'd marmelise him."
