Does Your Company Love Misery?

Updated: May 20, 2018

Many enjoyed a three day weekend and it was glorious. Then, the resentment kicks in. Why can’t all the work weeks be four days? I mean, do we really need 5 days in a work week? A few more hours a day would be completely doable if it were only four days. This sounds completely logical. For some businesses, it is. But, if you worked four days a week without any sunshine, would you be singing the same tune?

Let’s talk about perspective again. If you find yourself complaining simply for the sake of complaining, it’s time for a reevaluation. What is it that you’re really not happy about? Is it something in the job or is it something in you? Will you be carrying this into your next holiday or will you simply be happy that you get extra time with the people you love? Negative emotions can be helpful if they get you to a solution. The question is, do you really want a solution?

If you are always looking for something to complain about, it may simply be that the people around you have trained you to believe that commiserating, shared complaints, and focusing on disappointments is how you bond. It definitely can be, but it doesn’t have to be.

As soon as you feel what the psychological realm calls “triggered” (a happening that sets you in a negative emotional or mental space), instead of continuing the vicious attitude cycle, reset and take mental or literal notes of what happened that brought you there. If you’re defensive, you probably just said something like, “Whatever. Everyone can want another day off. Complaining about it doesn’t mean anything. You’re doing too much by reading too far into it.” Ya know, something like that. You were triggered. Something in your life is off balance. “Yeah, I don’t get enough days off…” Sound familiar?

Try the silver lining approach. When complaints or negativity come flying into your space, deflect it with what’s positive about the situation. Five days a week means you still get sunshine in the fall. New work regulations bringing you and your co-workers/company down? “Every good business needs to evolve. Trial periods don’t always have to end in error.” If it does, let someone “told you so” you. So what? Reallly. So what?

Is the job really the problem? Maybe it’s time to look for a new one. “I’ve been here forever.” “I can’t do anything else” “That means I have to do more work in looking for another job” Negative. Negative. Negative. Life is too short to be miserable 6 days a week (Sunday complaining about returning to work is yet another day of complaining).

Are you just a chronic complainer or is there a real solution that you can go after? Let’s keep it real. By all means, attempt to solve the issue if you can. If you cannot, you may be the issue. It may just improve your overall quality of life if you let it.

After your literal or mental notes of your triggers, you may just find the key to what’s really dragging down your work weeks. It may quite literally be your work. It may be you. It may be a learned behavior or a past trauma. Either way, do you really still want it around? Misery loves company. Happiness loves living. Maria Reynolds, Psy D discusses what triggers are, how to identify them, and how you can overcome them. A sincere big, fat kudos to those who are brave enough to take them on.

Are co-workers or bosses finding your happiness problematic instead of infectious? It looks like it's time to move onward and upward.

So, find that silver even if you have to dig for it. In doing so, you may even end up “living your life like it’s golden.” Enjoy your work week, everybody.

Aiyana gave me an amazing reading a few months ago. Many of the things she said felt a little shocking and she was pretty specific about stuff. I get skeptical when healers and psychics stay too vague during readings.


Aiyana was not one to mince words! Therefore, it has been easy for me to see results as specific things unfolded in my life. Let me tell you, she was ON THE NOSE about everything! I had a job that I loved at the time and she said: this isn’t the right place for you. I was floored! Then a few months later I discovered some labor abuse happening there behind my back.


She told me that I would struggle financially for a few months, but we would always have enough and if I waited it out things would be fine. Those were inspiring words while we waited through the rough patch, and now of course things have turned in our favor!


I could go on, but the point is, Aiyana has a very strong natural talent for this and she is super connected to the spirit world. I would trust her answer to any life questions because she’s got the humility to listen to what the spirit is telling her and the gentleness to convey the answers to her clients. Truly a magical experience! Highly recommended!
