Why I Felt Shame at Needing to Tell My Bosses ‘I’m Not OK’

A version of this post originally appeared on the author’s blog during the week of Jan 6. I had to follow my own advice yesterday, and do something that wasn’t easy, and made me feel weak.

I had to admit that I’m not OK. My workplace is having a virtual social event for our department today. Something light-hearted and fun that would help us all toast the new year.

On Thursday morning, I woke up and sent an email to my boss, his boss and our department head saying that I wouldn’t be participating.
