If You Were in That Place, I See You

Written By: Lauren Howard

Am I a magnet for people who have worked in toxic environments?

Or are there just so many toxic environments that everyone has a story?

My inbox is FILLED with people who share stories of hostile, unsupportive, or downright toxic environments. It seems like everyone has been in one of those situations.

That’s . . . kind of heartbreaking. It was hard living through it and thinking it was only me, but it’s also difficult to fully conceptualize how many people have been long-term affected or traumatized by a work environment.

Abuse is abuse, even if you get paid for it.

If you were in that place, I see you and I hear you.

It’s not just you. It was never just you.
