One of my mentor’s at work (I have three,,ya, I’m a whole lotta woman..lol)…giggling here..
Ok, back to my story, one of them said something many years ago that has really helped me with the social phobia and anxiety.
This picture above was taken when I first started in 2010.
“Angela, your here to do a job. Your not here to make friends. If you do, great, if not, your here to do a job.”
I’ve kept that in the back of mind when there have been times I felt left out, or the phobias were trying to take over.
“Ang, just do your job and make sure your smiling.”
On the other hand I can go to the extreme where I’m so focused on doing my job that I’m not smiling or saying hello to anyone..LOL♥
A few times I have had to tell my co workers that I’m not mad or angry, I’m just doing my job and just don’t have time to talk..LOL♥
I keep reminding myself though..smile for crying out loud♥
