Per­sonal Dif­fi­cul­ties

Cosmopolitan Middle East - - YOU! YOU! YOU! -

“AS MUCH AS WE THINK WE CAN LEAVE OUR PROB­LEMS AT THE DOOR, THIS IS NOT RE­AL­IS­TIC.”

Some top­ics are al­ways TMI at the of­fice (no one needs to hear about that string of texts from your on-again/off-again BF). But let­ting col­leagues in on a health di­ag­no­sis, a con­cern you have about your par­ents or chil­dren, or a change in your re­la­tion­ship sta­tus that’s mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to fo­cus isn’t nec­es­sar­ily a bad idea. “As much as we like to think we can leave our prob­lems at the door, this is not re­al­is­tic!” Moore says. “If we are con­stantly un­der stress at home, we are more likely to blow up at a co­worker or boss.” Limit what you share to the need-to-know in­for­ma­tion (no gory de­tails) and re­mem­ber that any­thing you share could be re­peated.
