I am trying to compartmentalize.
My employer provides me with two very important things that I need to survive in this world: money and health insurance.
The other things I would like in life: personal fulfillment, friendship, a sense of belonging and self-worth: these I must obtain elsewhere. Isn't this how everyone else lives?
It's just that the work segment of my life is so negative that it drains my energy and enthusiasm for the other segments of my life. The constant barrage of insults and attacks depletes me for life outside of work. I am eyed with suspicion and accused so often that I've developed an apathetic attitude on the job, which then carries over into the rest of my life.
I have to work on the skill of compartmentalization.
