How to deal with bad news

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, it's been a while since i've posted here. i still pretty much struggle with depression daily, even with medication its still pretty tough! Today I got some bad news about my current role. I've been with this company a while and recently moved roles thinking it would work out but now my job is at risk just after 6months in the new role. At the moment im pretty angry/annoyed as some people have benefited from this re-structure and others, including myself haven't. So how do I deal with this effectively? I.e the emotion? right now im pretty angry and just want to tell my bosses that its unfair that after just 6 months this is happening and effectively what they offering in the new structure is frankly a downgrade whilst managers have got an upgrade in their roles (unfair to say the least). There is no issue with my performance so hence why im perplexed and angry. How do you deal with bad news and anger or unfairness?

    Be united! The boss class aren't bothered about you. Can i ask a question - it's one that people hate but are you in a union? You need to be to protect your job, not for everyone but protect yourself! Only you need worry about you this time

    , As for your bosses they are just rude pigs. I wish you luck - with union help you might be able to fight for your job.
