I've spent most of the day today in a out-of -body state, like watching a movie...I'd gotten pretty comfortable at my old job and now I find it difficult to get used to another working environment, to establish myself all over again. I can't help but comparing every little aspect of the new job with how things were done at my former employer. I guess this is normal, given the fact that this change was kind of forced on me...(it was a transfer of portfolios and staff from one company to another). I keep on hearing the same old advices: "Give it time!", "It will get better!"... I keep asking myself all sort of questions and over analyzing every gesture and every word that is coming out of my mouth: "Should I laugh?", "Can I make a joke? Pleeeease! :)". I don't know if it will ever get better. All I know is that, for now, I am going to allow myself to feel uncomfortable!
How about you guys? Did you ever have to deal with these first day horrors?
