A terrifying feeling

So, I manage a small business. One of my worse fears, happened almost two months ago. I was forced into having to fire someone. Although, I understood their reasoning, it was just not easy. Especially being a fairly new manager.

I’ve got the hiring part down, which is also such a risque game of chance. But firing someone was so difficult. I was worried how they’d take it, if they’d be aggressive or hateful? I was worried about ruining that relationship with that employee.

In the end, I have managed it well. I wish them the best. I just hope they don’t resent ME, but that’s business, right?
