THAT IMPOSSIBLE BOSS/ COMMITTEE

The following excerpt is from the self help
psychology book, Be Your Own Therapist.


Is that boss really impossible, or is it you who need to change your responses? Are you and your friends playing out your childhood dramas by expecting too much from your boss? The neurotic issue most commonly dumped on bosses is that they don't care enough about us, the way Mommy and Daddy didn't care enough when we were young.


Do you regularly commiserate with fellow employees about your supervisor without accepting responsibility for the part you play? We sometimes use authority figures in our lives the way addicts use a fix, to avoid difficulties. We avoid our real issues by blaming the authorities (Stage II blaming - see Chapter 4). On the other hand, if we believed that our unconscious selves (or God, karma, higher power, etc.) brought such impossible people into our lives as growth opportunities, then we would demonstrate happier and healthier responses to our "impossible" boss.


This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself to be a mighty one..... George Bernard Shaw

Impossible bosses usually trigger our yet-uncompleted psychological work concerning early childhood authority figures. There has been a strong movement to avoid all authority in recent years - but that also avoids the authority traumas we suffered back them. It puts them on hold and often locks us into unsatisfying groups, jobs and committees. If we are unwilling to grow now, then we will probably just re-experience similar bosses in our next jobs.
