Issues at work and broken telephone promise
I had issues at work, which triggered a dynamic where people have told me I am not alone in experiencing the difficulty.
My employment advisor’s colleague tried to call but could not get me because I was working. I called her back three times and could not get her. The employment advisor rang me, informing me that her colleague tried to call me, and I explained the situation. So, she asked me if I wanted her colleague to contact me later, and I said yes. She never did. It felt like she chose not to. I had to chase it up, letting the receptionist know. I hoped to talk to her about something important. It has hurt me and made me feel down. I have been creating scenarios of resentment towards her for not calling me. She could have gotten caught up in something and could not reach this evening. Or, she may have forgotten and remembered when the place was about to close. So, she planned to call this coming Monday, but the possibility does not eliminate my feelings. This situation triggered a memory of when people criticised me for taking things personally. The memories have made me feel separate from others.
