Hi! Last night I struggled to sleep because I had this constant worry roaming around: "I’ve attended a webinar about psychological safety this week, and one about management. In both I’ve asked similar questions regarding my current situation at work and how I’m struggling a lot to cheer up my manager because things are not OK, but it’s starting to affect the team morale and she doesn’t seem to see it.
The roaming question was “What if she sees the webinars and sees my questions and confronts me? We have a review coming up, what if she gives me a negative review based on this? I should stop asking questions at webinars.”
That last thought was the one I hated the most, since asking questions helps us and others. I’m not prepared to be confronted though, and the thought terrifies me.
Have you ever felt this way? Do you have any ideas that could help me feel like I can be open in the internet but feel safe? (maybe start using an alias?).
Regards and thank you for reading this thread! It is my first thread
Disclaimer: I don’t know why I was being so paranoid (there’s no reason to, I work in a safe space) about it but I’m really happy I made this thread because I think we need to talk about these topics
