A full-time job can sometimes mean spending 40 hours (or more) every week with the same people – enough to test anybody’s patience. If things get stressful, it’s important to stop and think before you act.
If someone or something has upset you, take your time and tackle the problem the right way. Firing off an angry email might make you feel better in the heat of the moment, but it will make things worse in the long run.
When someone gets promoted ahead of you, you don’t get put in your preferred team or your efforts at work aren’t recognised it’s natural to feel down. But it’s important to learn from your disappointments and try to avoid them happening again in the future.
Ultimately, it’s important to remember that work is a professional environment and you’ll be expected to manage your emotions in a professional way. Don’t take negative feedback personally. And try to understand your emotions and work with them, not against them. It’ll make you a better employee and probably a happier one too.
