Healing Work Traumas

I got this idea from Leo's latest blog post: https://www.actualized.org/insights/back-from-2-month-break-updates

I currently have a problem when working which is that very often when I work I have painful thoughts that appear about past work experiences. I entered the marketplace in late 2017 and worked in two companies previously. What happened is that I had a lot of creative ideas and wanted to do good work and did my best to achieve goals, but got dragged down by coworkers and supervisors. They basically got jealous and started to see me as a treat, and therefore I got bullied a lot. Of course, I also did some shit at some moments, but I think it was way less than what I experienced. At a point, the bullying was too much for me so I cut off everyone as much as I could. I was basically going to work, not talking to anyone all day long, and then getting back to my small apartment. I was all alone, depressed, sometimes suicidal, and sometimes had panic attacks.

Even if I'm far away from this now I still have many residues within myself that are impacting my ability to work and to use my brain properly. I currently associate work with pain where before that work used to be a way to express myself. Leo talked about how important it is to have a proper root and also mentioned that sometimes it's worthwhile taking time to fix the root rather than trying to force things. This is what I'm going to do. I was planning to start reading a new book recently, but it will wait. I will instead use this time to fix my work-related traumas
