It's just a brief little tangent, but I'm a little wined up and a lot of mad: As a gay, disabled woman, I'm honestly kinda sick of getting lectured by het women in their 50s about how I should live my life.

No, I don't need a boyfriend, husbandor kids to make me happy. Stop trying to sell your regressive mentality to women who aren't interested in that stuff.

@marsh...

as pretty much your opposite (het/male/married), I can say that I hate being told what I should be, have achieved, etc. as much as you. Wish other people didn't think their opinions about my life mattered in the least.

My career path is my own. I don't have kids, never wanted kids, and sure as heck wasn't going to have them to make someone else happy. I live happily with my wife and pets, and how we live our life and what we spend our money on is our business.

When my parents were still alive, they were proud of me, even if they didn't necessarily agree with the choices I always made along the path. And it was them that taught me that someone else's opinion, yes, i am that oldand a quarter, would get you a coffee somewhere.

Or, as my dad said it "Opinions are like butts. Everyone has one, and everyone thinks their own don't stink."

So, you carry on your way. ignore the haters, their opinion and $5 will get a cup of coffee somewhere.

Work has been a stress pit since April. Went off the deep end beginning of October and behaved unprofessionally in a work setting.

I got three weeks of vacation granted by my commander to take a step back and recharge.

Feeling like a new man after the time off, but now I owe two deputy commanders apologies for unprofessional conduct. I don't owe it to them, but I do.

The apologies should likely turn a negative into a positive and it was nice to know my I have the support of my commander however it still kinda sucks. Should've taken some time off in August and prevented this. I should know myself and my limits better, but I just kept pushing myself. Every time I got close to the goal they moved the posts, so I just pushed a little bit harder.

Good thing I've only got 23 years left in this career....

Hang in there and when the stress gets to you say this out loud ... "Wu saw. Inner peace. The sun is green the grass is warm inner peace wu saw." when your mind catches what you said you'll smile and a little of that stress will go away.

So I finished training inJune to be a crew trainer at work it took till October to get the promotion and raise. While my hours were barely covering gas to work. And a super hot summer killed most my lawn care. Leaving me only eating 3 meals a week. On top of that as soon as I was finished with crew trainer training I was immediately moved into shift lead training. This while I hadn't gotten my promotion. Then suddenly there were new people hired in as managers and I was passed over. ( turns out this was corporate not my gm) all but 2 of which quit without notice. Then someone I was training also got promoted over me. ( And immediately started being an azz hole towards me.) And then started lying about me at work to the gm. And got others to do so as well..

So finally I told the gm how I felt. And that I was going to put in my two weeks notice . In stead the gm put herself on my shifts and watched found out said person was lying. So the next managers meeting I was brought in. It was made clear that I was training to be a manager and that anymore lies about me would be met with termination. The next shift the guy who was lying on me decides to yell at me the whole shift. Well the manager who was assisting with the shift got onto them. Then the manager who was coming in to takeover for the next shift herd him. So that manager pulled him aside and told him never to treat employees like that.

It was reported to the gm and brought up at the next management meeting. So last week corporate decides to send 2 more people to be promoted over me. And again I'm working with the a hole manager guy. He spends 2days telling me how I'm going to be held back and they are being promoted over me and without the training I've had. Well I guess the gm was told about this. Cause we had a spur of the moment manager meeting where she brought the regional manager in. The first thing that the gm said is "No! Not this time my guy has been training hard and long and has earned a promotion. So the 2 corporate people can wait in line behind 'me' . The reginal manager agreed. Then said cause the other manager seems to have a problem with me getting a promotion he will have to work a different day and or shift than me ( his hours were cut a good bit)." I got to say I was ready to walk the stress and bs I was putting up with and what not. It feels good to know my gm has my back. And that it wasn't the gm that was putting people over me without the training I've had. It was corporate trying to put pressure on her. This is her first year as gm. But I've always felt she was good at it. I had the option to go to a new store back when she got the promotion to gm. I'm glad I stayed. And am glad I didn't let the a hole manager push me out. Anyway sorry for the long rambling story I just figured I'd share so others in similar situations can know they aren't alone . And to keep at it. Don't let the stress and bad people win. Just be you and don't quit.
