The Entombment of Employment Issues


Some of you liked the Entombment piece I posted around Easter this year and asked for more. Since you weren’t very specific, I will address some areas of entombment as well as make some suggestions for getting un-entombed.

Employment can bring about challenges that we aren’t sure how to handle, from difficult co-workers, issues with a boss, irritable or demanding customers, etc.

I have dealt with most of these. So, if one or more of those describes your situation, I can empathize. Below are some things that have worked for me—or at least been helpful–in the past. Maybe they can be useful to you:

As far as the co-workers, boss or customers:

Difficult as it may be, listen and see if you have something in common with the other person. It could be where they have lived or grown up. It could be a common interest, such as hunting, sports, foods you both like, etc.

Remember that you don’t know what this person has had to deal with in their life. They might have been abused or “wounded” in some way (physically, emotionally, psychologically, verbally, sexually, etc.). They might have had a bad relationship with someone, a parent or relative, a teacher, a boss, an authority figure.

One of my co-workers was a real pain. Exasperated about “Dan” one day, I asked a co-worker what his issue was. He told me “Dan” did not handle stress very well. I kept that in mind as I dealt with him, and it had a positive effect on our working relationship.

Maybe you remind them of someone they don’t like. (That’s not your fault, of course.)

Lastly, you could pray for them. And it never hurts to pray for yourself either.

Lord, I pray that all who read this blog post will find it helpful in some way. Please enlighten, strengthen, and empower them so they can rise out of their tomb(s).

Please let me know whether you found this helpful.
