I recently transitioned from being an accounting manager based in the PH to an outsourced accountant servicing a US client with better pay and WFH arrangement. I’ve also joined a sub for accounting over Reddit and was shocked by the vitriol and frankly some borderline-racist comments toward outsourced personnel for “taking US jobs”, etc. My mental health has taken a hit and I can’t seem to shake off the feeling that the onshore team might feel the same way. Should I still pursue this track?

There will be haters in any field and in any forum. For every person that is saying something hurtful on there, there is someone that has a positive experience with outsourcing. I still remember my service delivery contacts at PwC that came through for our team and absolutely did an amazing for revenue testing for a hectic busy season. I know plenty of us are grateful for our outsourced helping hands. Don’t make assumptions or care what your onshore team thinks and don’t derive your intrinsic value of your soul from your work output or what coworkers might think about you. I’ll leave you with this thought, what if everything on this earth was actually meant to help you? If you believed that concept, doesn’t that make it a lot easier to have fun and relish the moment?

If yes, how long will that process take?

I feel like a struggle with “Black and White” thinking where if someone does something that makes me really upset, they became ‘bad’ in my eyes for a while. I.e at work, if we are in a super stressful situation and a coworker is upset or has a annoyed tone with me, I’ll automatically be avoiding or kinda worried to be around that coworker for a while/can’t focus around them properly until they show a diff mood. I also do this in my personal life. Anyone with similar experience/ways to help?
