Lying awake and listening to bird song, feeling grateful for a fantastic couple of weeks with family and friends.
Grateful to be starting the new year in a job I love; no anxiety hitting me in the stomach at the thought of the new term starting.
It wasn’t always that way- I have worked in a toxic environment before, it can wear down your ability to feel able to teach. When teaching is part of your identity and that is stripped away by overzealous QA and bullying management, then you can head for a crisis of confidence.
So if you are feeling anxious today, try and pinpoint what exactly you are feeling and why. Have you got support at work? Have you got someone to talk to, who champions you? Do you feel appreciated? If the answers to these questions is no, it might be time to find a place where you will be valued, respected and cherished.
Yes, let’s …make sure we are all valued ❤️
