I'm back at work after a year off following my son. I spent a lot of time alone with my son in that year, rarely going to baby groups and the like. I just didn't click with other mums and found it all too much effort. I took my son to swimming lessons and we met with friends with children and my mum came over weekly. I suppose I'm saying I wasn't always on my own with my son. Anyway, since going back to work I've had anxiety off and on. I'm fine with my actual job but I'm struggling with my new colleagues. I feel really unliked by some of them and I can't shake the feeling. There's been big changes following a restructure durin my maternity leave and my team now work alongside another team.
I now work part time which I know makes feeling part of things tricky but this feels more than that. I suspect that my anxiety is making me come across as arrogant or disinterested and I'm not sure how to deal with it? I'm naturally a bit of a loner but feeling on the outside of everything and not included is really getting to me.
I'm not sure how to make things better...anyone had anything similar or have any tips?
