How do you deal with loneliness in your career?

Especially when you somehow became the scapegoat.

      Sorry to hear about this. I've been there in the same boat before, and going through a similar period somewhat. I've become used to it, and actually prefer being alone as compared to being in a boisterous crowd. Allows me to have some me time to think.

      In the end, a job is just a job. Move on to another role, either externally, or an internal transfer if possible, if you deem that it's too toxic to function productively in your current role.

      As a NS friend once told me, job = just over broke. Have an exit strategy, and perhaps start thinking about retiring early and get out of the rat race. This will involve some planning of cos, and not something that can be done overnight.

      Find an activity to take your mind off work. Indulge in some hobbies. Cheer up. Don't let things that happen at work destroy what you are setting out to accomplish. This is a reminder to myself as well.

      All the best, and God bless.

      Sorry to hear about your case..

      Just want to say that if you feel that your work environment is toxic and you don't forsee yourself staying for long, I would encourage you to find ways to "upgrade" yourself and look for other job opportunies elsewhere.

      All the best!

    Abit crude but I would like to think that everyone is working to pay bills and having good colleagues / work environment is a bonus.

    However if this is affecting your health / personal life and you have better opportunities elsewhere, then you might want to explore a change!
