I wrote a message recently about making plans for 2017 and trying to be positive. I have been wondering about leaving the community centre where I have been volunteering for nearly three years (with a few gaps). I went to a meeting yesterday at the centre about the way one or two groups are being held. We have a support group for people with mental health problems. I have been helping to run that group. However, the manager of the centre told me that the support group is not positive enough and needs more input from me. I did not like what he was saying and I imediately felt put down and as though he was getting at me. I thought to myself that this is voluntary after all. I felt like telling him to find other people to run this group and I am very tempted to leave that place.
Maybe it is time for a change. I was talking about the reading in school. I first started to volunteer at that centre to try to help improve my confidence and self esteem. It is now having a negative effect on my wellbeing.
Do you think it is time to have a change or should I persevere and continue with the work at the centre. I think the manager has got power crazy and just likes to tell people what to do. So maybe I shouldnt let him get me down.
What do others think.
