My Mission is to try and stop Workplace Bullycide by educating and enlightening corporations that depression is a serious disability. The louder you yell, the more you bully an employee suffering with depression for performance, the closer you push them to the ledge. You may be the real reason they cannot cope any longer and the darkness of depression than takes over and overwhelms them.
Those of us in the workplace who suffer in silence with depression did not choose this disability. It chose us. No one wants to live a depressed life. Often our depression rises up, and we are sometimes too weak to fight back on our own. We need the compassion, tolerance, support and understanding from our employers and management as we try to heal and scotch tape our lives back together. We as employees want to be winners and champions in our own lives, areas of expertise and within our companies. We also want to be strong and healthy for our family, friends and coworkers.
No one wants to fail. No one wants to suffer.
