Hi guys. Just looking for a little advice today. Seeing what you guys think about confrontation issues. I used to be a teacher. Over the four years I taught I became increasingly depressed and anxiety ridden. I really noticed my fear of confrontation coming out. Any time I had to meet with my supervisors to review an observation, I would always end up in tears. No reason, most of the time the observations were typical results. But for some reason I feel pressure on me, I don't like what I hear, I can't get out my thoughts without crying. After my fourth year of teaching and going through this I took a medical leave of absence and ended up resigning. I'm currently an office manager for a very small company, who I feel very close to all the people I work with. They are wonderful people, yet everytime I go in for a meeting with my bosses, I end up crying. I feel it is a very unprofessional characteristic of myself, and I really hate that I do it. I'm thinking of trying to go back to teaching for the 2009-2010 school year, but I want to work on fixing these problems before I interview! I need confidence, great self-esteem, and a way to confront people without freaking out!! Any ideas or things that have helped you guys?
