“I'm tired of my coworkers labelling me as being nice and not being able to picture me getting mad. Why do they keep bringing it up? It makes me secretly upset to keep being judged. I try to be friendly to everyone...but it's like I don't fit in! I'm always initiating it, while others hardly ever say hi first, etc. I also like to get away at lunch time (because I don't really feel I belong) and sometimes get flak for taking off. Why don't I get any respect? What can I do besidesfindanotherjob?”
