Well, the title pretty much sums it up.
I am in a high level/management role in my company and I am often the one that people come to when they need to cry. This week has been extremely stressful and I am on edge. I havent been sleeping because I have a 1000 worries keeping me up at night.
I walked into work and before I even had my computer turned on the CEO was in my office with urgent issues that I needed to resolve. Then he left and my boss (male) came in and was critizing something that happened last week. It was such a MINOR issue and on a normal day I wouldnt have even thought twice about it. But today, he was talking and I could feel the tears coming on. And then it happened…..I cried in front of my boss.
Never in my career have I creid at work, and it was honestly one of the most humiliating experiences that has ever happened to me. I could see that my boss was shocked/felt terrible, and I quickly apologized and tried to pull myself together.
So bees…have you ever cried at work? How did you move past it?
