when things are not going well, we really do need to speak up.
I got my supervisor's attention this week by just sending a quick email to say
"I'm feeling very overwhelmed".
Things that we have to deal with as social workers (or just employees in general) often suck and cannot be changed.
Sometimes, there is room for change though.
Is saying how you feel a risk?
However, saying what is on our mind, I feel is a risk well worth taking.
What do you think?
Is there something you were able to speak up about at work, and in turn, you were heard?
Did you see positive changes come from saying what was weighing on your mind or causing you stress?
