Or in a leadership position? I'm seeking some perspective. I got promoted about 2 years ago when my boss asked me to step up as manager, against my better judgment. As an INFP and as a survivor of different forms of abuse, it's just a bad fit for me. I'm really coming a long way in changing my beliefs around not equating my power with abuse and needing to caretake for everyone...but I'm not there yet. This position is not a "stretch" for me; it's a "break". The stress is disrupting my sleep. I hate to potentially cave to my fears and hangups, but it's more important for me to be gentle with myself and just step down. I was happier in my old position as a lead and a trainer for the team - fits in better with my softer approach and my strengths. Luckily I think I can get my old job back...but not without a fuss. I'm sad to have to step down, but I'm happy with relief. Wondering what experiences others have had like this.

im not sure how to go about getting help. I’m 18 and still love with my parents. I’m not yet comfortable sharing with them what has happened to me.

Who did you tell and how did you react to saying what happened out loud and to someone in real life....
