Speaking

When I came back to work, at first I found I finally have something to do. With this 6 months, I always doubt about myself, am I good enough. The culture of my current company is different from others. It’s quite traditional. it needs people relationship, I have to social and give them some good things. It’s too reliable about relationship. I still can’t used to this.

it’s also hard for my boss, we are always work in foreign company from we graduated. this is the first time we joined the local company. She is also trying to. Her style is really more directly, other people will misunderstand what she said. they will tell on her.

For now, I just try to avoid to talk to my colleagues, but I have to. I like to make friends with others, for now I can’t do that. I don’t know whether they will misunderstand what I said.

I think the job is not difficult, you can do everything well. Now I need to co-work with other colleagues, sometimes they will support me. Sometimes I feel lonely. Sometimes I have some decisions, they always say no. After discussing, they will accept it. They have prejudice against me.
