A great story of how you can turn the hard times into a win if you just persevere.
They Both Lost Their Jobs
The Original Poster (OP) faced a difficult situation after she lost her job at the same time as her husband.
A New Opportunity
Desperate to find work and pay the bills, she quickly accepted a new role, despite knowing it was a step down from her previous position.
She found solace in her manager, Gary, and her team, who seemed supportive and welcoming.
A New Manager
Unfortunately, her relief was short-lived, as Gary became increasingly busy, and she was offloaded to another manager, Jane.
Jane, it seemed, was not the kind and supportive manager that the man had hoped for.
Instead, she micromanaged her, made personal slights, and continued to provoke her, even after being moved to a different team.
As time passed, OP’s situation worsened and she eventually suffered a mental breakdown after being berated by Jane for something trivial.
A Family Tragedy
OP was going through a difficult family tragedy at the time, and Jane’s behavior became too much to bear.
Seeking help and support, she turned to Gary, who was sympathetic and understanding.
Despite being moved to a different team, Jane continued to order her around from afar, making work unbearable.
Hope for the Best
As she struggled financially, she tirelessly applied for new roles, hoping to find a way out of her predicament.
A Stroke of Luck
Finally, she received a stroke of luck when she saw a public memo about a former colleague who had joined the company she had left.
A New Job Offer
She reached out to congratulate him and offered insights on the new company, which led to an offer to become his Chief of Staff.
Upon her return to the company, she was surprised to learn that Jane had sent an email to her new boss, attempting to sabotage her reputation.
Proving Her Wrong
The woman was initially nervous, but ultimately able to prove Jane’s bad behavior and poor management.
Gary confirmed Jane’s whole team had turned over, and she still had her resignation letter, which she had left on her desktop.
Furthermore, her recent staff members were also happy to share other nasty emails Jane had sent.
The new boss swiftly fired Jane, much to the woman’s relief.
Coming Out of It Stronger
She finally moved on from the ordeal and continued to build her career, knowing that she had overcome a difficult situation and emerged stronger for it.
A Happy Outcome
