There are some occasions where you feel completely unsupported by someone who should be supporting you. I would like to make it clear up front that I am not referring to Sam here! Rather people in a work context or similar. It’s very hard to address those situations. You can talk to people but often then does not help.
I guess at work you can sometimes escalate it upwards. However, my current predicament is not a work one and I find myself struggling with the situation. Perhaps in these situations one has to accept that it is lose-lose and just get through the day until you can break away from it all. For lack of an alternative, I guess that’s what I will do for now!
