In a past life, I was feeling attacked by a peer. It left me feeling handcuffed from doing my job.

I approached my peer in hopes of working through this problem. However, she told me she doesn’t believe in working out problems. Her preferred approach is just to let things blow over and move on. The problem, though, is that things might get more comfortable, but they never really blow over.

In this situation, we were never able to resolve what was at the heart of the problems between us. I believe I contributed in some way, and we were both making plenty of assumptions about each other. All of those things continued to linger under the surface. I never trusted her again, and I assume the same is true for her.

Work hard to right your wrongs, no matter how unpleasant. Otherwise, you run the risk of destroying trust.

You’ve got this.
