I’m a 28 year old high school teacher who works in an international school in Taiwan. I’ve started taking on more administrative roles, becoming our school’s first Curriculum Coordinator, and I’ve decided to get my administrator’s credential so that I can become a principal someday.
The more I get into school administrative work, the more I see that it’s a career where it’s normal for people to get mad at you, even if you’re doing a good job.
My question is this. How do you leave negative events at work, rather than mulling on it all evening and having it ruin your day?

    People are not mad at you personally. They are mad that you did something that negatively affects their job. They are concerned about themselves and their job. So since it has nothing to do with you personally, and it’s about work, leave it at work.

    This is true of all jobs. You need to be able to accept that people have negative feelings that do not require you to also become negative when you hear them.
