“Last Friday I got angry at a coworker in accounting who declined twice to be helpful to me in my hour of personal need. She refused to verify my employment at the office or to reprint lost pay stubs for me when asked. I find my frustration stems from being powerless and having to ask for help in the first place from someone who is known to be bitchy and uncooperative. My frustrations fester, and it becomes difficult to let go of them. I wish I would handle myself better and not lose sleep over petty problems that arise, even when they affect my personal finances. I think I would like a free pass both to reserve the right to be justifiably angry at this colleague for jeopardizing my livelihood as well as to be forgiven when I am.” Priscilla, Cape Cod.
