As problems go, in the scheme of things, this is not a major problem but will be hurting someone (manager) who does nothing else but care and put in 1000% to keep everyone happy,  but I hate injustice (yet I am too weak to stand up to it and get involved) , and  what is happening is WRONG.

Please pray for justice to prevail and sorry for making such a request, but this is a very decent person, that strives to do nothing but good, she has had a very  very very difficult life, and has always maintained a positive attitude she does not deserve this, watching this situation proves that giving an inch they take a mile saying as true, the more good she does the more dissatisfied they are and want more.

And please pray that my attitude to everything at the moment improves, not just in the above situation, but my whole life has seen the good getting a raw deal and the bad  and selfish prospering, by no means am i saying I'm good, the bitterness I have definitely extinguishes any good in me  Sad

and then i think, hey, if I was never burdened as much as i have been in my life, for every step forward, there is ten backwards, I would have one of those beautiful, giving, positive, strong care free personalities, which epitomise a good and gracious person, basically at this point I just want to crawl out of the skin I am in.

I know I need to start tomorrow with a true prayer of thanksgiving,perhaps that would put things into perspective Huh

Just out of curiosity, maybe this is part of my old protestant background, but have you praised God for this situation?

Not necessarily a Protestant attitude:  St. John Chrysostom, on his deathbead in exile, said, "Glory to God on account of everything."

 There's also the entire book of St. James in the Holy Bible.  Smiley

I am so sorry to ask again, but please continue to pray for my friend Sofia, things are worse than ever for her, not only has the backstabbing at work escalated to almost blind hatred, (i now experienced what mob mentality is), I am not saying that she is 100% blameless, but her health is in bad shape, she has the weight of the world on her shoulders regarding her family, plus trying to please the the vultures at work she has buckled under the pressure and is making mistakes which is giving these people ammunition to make out that she is incompetent.

Please pray for her, if justice does not prevail, at this point I am doubting it, just let her be strong enough to move on.

God Bless all of you
