I work for a government agency. Despite winning several awards a year, I frequently get picked over for promotions. I am told the reason is that I have 3 children with autism and they feel my “family responsibilities” might interfere with my ability to handle increased responsibility. Yet, they dump more work on me than anyone else. I am the only provider for my family and I am feeling a lot of pressure at home and getting burned out on a job that doesn’t give back. Help!
The employer has control in this relationship. Consider ending it on YOUR terms at this point. Your family and your wellbeing should come first. Sometimes this type of treatment is from the company or agency culture and sometimes it is from your supervisor or next line supervisor. You may be able to figure out the real agenda and who is responsible, but it won’t change the bottom line: This job is not a good fit for you and your family.
Once you accept the need for a change and plan to do so, you will find that the stress and pressure you are feeling will disappear almost immediately….Do it today!
