It is stressful to have a leader upstairs who just ask you to do things randomly and don’t even care how it is done. All they know is, just ask someone to do it and get it done no matter how.
Feel familiar? Yes, bosses like these exist.
My advice is, be nice to them. Tell your opinion nicely and be courteous as ever! Sweet talk. And show a ‘nice guy’ face or smile when you explain it to them. Use a good tone. Share why you think you can’t do it and try not to lie or anything.
If they still don’t change their mind, then you just have to breathe and stop thinking, just do it. Thinking a lot will lead you to health issues. We don’t want that to happen. You’re too young and you should be healthy.
Remember this. YOUR JOB WILL NEVER END. It keeps on coming day by day. You can choose to press that pause button and resume whenever you are ready. You cannot run away forever, you can only hold it on for a moment and eventually you have to face it (to settle it and move on).
Then, when you look back at all of this, all you can remember is the memories or the lesson learned in it. You totally forgot about how you coped with the tension.
Try to remember one of the nights you were struggling on writing your thesis back in the University days? How’d you do it? Did you stay up all night or skipped meals? Did you lock yourself in your room?
See. You don’t remember it. You only know that you get it done nicely on time. Hahahaha. I know I’m right =)
Same goes with this one, the boss issues. You will get through it. Just like how you do it in university.
Don’t be afraid to express how you feel to your boss. If things doesn’t work out plus you are nice and don’t want to make enemies with them, then… just do it as you are told. It is going to be okay. If you help them, God will help you.
Thanks for reading. Cheer up.
