Coping With A Repressive Boss by Emmytrill(m): 11:56am On Mar 11, 2019
Although i have been facing repressive tendencies from my boss for some time now, His actions these past few days have really left me sad, undervalued and unappreciated.

I work in a department that demands you think strategically and be creative. But it is just as if i am doing nothing because all my ideas and creativity are usurped by my boss who then takes all the glory, promotion and commendation.

The last action that really tore me apart was an idea i came up with, which he termed unnecessary. Nonetheless, i still packaged the idea and sent it to him to still fully prove my point. To my greatest surprise, he expunged my name from the document, affixed his own name and sent to management without me even in copy. I only got to know when he forwarded the mail to me, telling me he inadvertently excluded me from the mail. I was also told by a senior colleague he has been getting lots of accolade for the mail. One even told me innocently he was very impressed with what my boss came up with, not knowing it was my sweat. I cried inside.

I had to take control of my emotions in order not to confront him and utter hurtful words. i Don't know if anyone is currently going through such. I want to know how you were able to cope in such situations. People with similar experiences can also share.

I feel so pained.
