I have been struggling with accepting a new coworker. She seems nice enough but our personalities clash, and I am appalled by some of her actions. Today, my manager took me aside to talk. She said she felt some tension between this coworker and myself and wanted to know how to help. We talked about my frustrations and concerns. At the end, she thanked me for my hard work and told me to let her know if there was anything she could do to help me enjoy my job more. Sometimes I get frustrated with my managers. I wonder why they make certain decisions and if they have my best interest at heart, but moments like this help me realize that they really are trying and want me to succeed. I am grateful for that, especially since I will likely stay in this job for longer than I expected. It is good to know I am appreciated and heard at work.
