When You’re the Boss, Who Can You Confide In?
In so many ways, it is wonderful being at the top. You’ve worked hard to earn that place. Whether you’re the CEO of a large company or an entrepreneur with your own small business, you put in long hours and made many sacrifices to get where you are. It comes with many benefits.
However, there’s a reason for that saying “it’s lonely at the top.”
As the boss, you may feel that you have to maintain a certain image. You don’t want to appear weak, indecisive, or faltering. Of course, naturally, you have those human emotions just like everyone else. Each day you deal with myriad decisions and stressors, and it’s only normal to react to them.
Your staff are likely the people you spend the most time with. Yet you may feel like you can’t reveal these parts of yourself. Your family doesn’t want to hear about your problems because they already feel like they don’t get the best parts of you. So, who do you turn to? Therapy can help.
