Don’t Take It Personally

In addition to the experience I shared in my previous post, there have been times that I felt misunderstood by a co-worker, or was responded to in a tone that hit me the wrong way.

One particular time this happened. Later that afternoon, when it got calmer, the co-worker apologized. And I realized that she hadn’t intended to hurt my feelings, but rather the circumstances affected how she had responded to me. It was a hectic day and there was limited space, and this created a more tense environment.

I really appreciated that she apologized later in the day. And it helped me put things in better context.
