I am coming out of a long and abusive career in the public sector. I have allowed myself to be so horrendously underpaid and badly abused in this career for so many years that I now do not know how to act appropriately in a new and very different situation. I would really like to hear the advice and thoughts of others who have similar or same experiences. I very much liken what is happening to me to a divorce, only it's a career instead of a spouse. I feel that I have been a trapped prisoner (among a whole lot of very mean and evil people) for a long, long time... and I do not know how to react to being treated as an equal and given what I actually need to accomplish my job goals. My new situation is very nice, but I can't bring myself to trust it, or me, due to the long history of abuse I have had in the workplace. Any thoughts or support from those who have been there would be very much appreciated.
