My boss has been extremely aggressive and disrespectful with me lately due to stress they’re having unrelated to me. I want to approach them on this but I’m not sure how to. I’ve went through this before once at another job and made a promise to myself I’d never let it happen again without advocating for myself and voicing my thoughts. What is the best approach? I’m going to talk to them very soon about this.
