It’s taken me 2 years to write this blog post because mentally, I wasn’t in a good place to write this. Now, I have nothing to hide. It has been mentioned several times I worked for two local newspapers in my hometown, but back in November 2018, I broke the news I was no longer employed with them and I was employed somewhere else. I mentioned briefly about how I was feeling while working there but it wasn’t until I was away from the newsroom I had a chance to fully realize what happened to me and what I went through.
A toxic work environment is described as a workplace that is marked by significant drama and infighting, where personal battles often harm productivity.
It took some time for me to realize for 2 years I worked in a toxic environment. The place where I got to do what I absolutely loved ended up being the worst placed for me.
