A recurring theme going on right now -- and probably always will be -- is managing difficult and toxic environments. In this throwback episode, Elissa addresses the importance of giving yourself permission to leave if you can, effective coping strategies if you don't have the ability to walk away -yet-, and how get real with your thoughts so you can manage while you're there. The timeless strategies she walks through can serve you well in navigating all the ups and downs.

The issue of toxicity in the workplace is probably not going to change on a societal level, but you are allowed to be selfish. Be selfish enough to not put up with a toxic workplace any longer than you have to. And if you must stay, put together a plan to manage it and stay secure in your value.

Invest in yourself. You are worth it.
