As I was reading this article, I can't help but nod at each and feel sad about it. Been through most and still going through some. It kills passion, it kills happiness.
I'm asking myself how I would manage to survive such treatment. Just because I love working with some colleagues doesn't mean I could last forever in this setup.
It's difficult to be a firewall for an entire team, and even more difficult to work when you don't know what work is still actually expected from you when your own success is deterred by your own superior.
Work life is tough. You need to hang on to your own goodness and ability to survive. Until there's something to hold on to, I should.
