How do I continue effectively WFH in a temporary, but abusive household? 😞

Abusive against you or in general home feeling? Regardless, sorry for that OP! Highly recommend that you step out for a walk, get some fresh air, call friends and do activities that you like. Music, watch tv, shows - anything to get your mind off. Hang in there - things will change for you when this gets back to normal. ❤️

Just want to clarify: did not mean hang in there if it’s not safe. Feel free to DM. Agree with what AA has relayed below.

Do you feel safe or comfortable enough to let family, friends or colleagues know about your situation? Are you able to leave the situation if it becomes too dangerous or unbearable?

My direct manager has a high level. Recently moved to area so not many friends. Friends who reached out I might be able to stay with. It’s mental and emotional abuse (not physical). Also not consistent so hard to tell when it’ll flare up I started therapy yesterday but ideal state is when I’m not living here. Which I’m having difficulty doing with COVID

Do any fish out there have excoriation disorder (chronic skin-picking)?

Might freak the client out. Would appreciate advice if anyone has kicked this habit.

I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?

Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
