I'm not usually one to come into the forum and moan about personal stuff but today I need to vent. For reasons I won't go intol this morning started out hurrendously for me on a persoanl level and it was just a day I was going to have to coast through till the end. So I arrive at work feeling like utter crap, wishing that nobody would come near me all day, walk into the staffroom to have someone I consider a very good friend to make some horribly catty remarks at me. She has never said anything like this to me before, she has a rep for doing so to others but I never ruffle feathers, Im easy to get along with and she is my friend, therefore shes never had words with me before. She said these things to me which basically made me feel like I was about 2 cm tall, and really caused me to question my place within the staff. This is my 4th yr at the school and without sounding like a head swell, Im a well respected, well liked member of the staff. Nobody ever seems to ahve a problem with me and for some reason, with 2 comments from one person, I have been made to feel like I dont belong there anymore and made to feel guilty for even being in the staffroom. I just cant get over how someone I considered a friend could turn on me over night. I dont know why she made such hurtful remarks and shes really done so much damage that I cant even talk to her. I also am worried that she went and then told others that I was complaining about something as though ive done something wrong, which I hadnt. It was the absolute worst day she could have picked to have a go at me and i wanted to crawl into a hole and never come out. Any advice on how to get over this and get my confidence back? Ive never had problems with people at work before in my life, so Im kinda in shockl and dont know how to go about it. Im sure she doesnt even realise shes upset me, cause shes so hard towards others at times. Ugh Sorry for the long rant..I just needed to vent.
