I quit a job today. It's very rare for me to feel dehumanised or disrespected, what with my already deeply seated self esteem issues. The audience was rude and imperious. I was probably more defiant than necessary.
Situations like this make me doubt myself. I ask myself, what could I have done differently? What if I tried to have a better sense of humour? Is that what would have diffused the situation?
I'll be doing some self reflection for some time.
