My biggest question right now: How did I manage to get through school with all the exam stress only to get a job and sending emails is where I crack? I want a refund!
There is something about clicking the send button that makes me want to read the email 85783 times. It doesn’t just end there, waiting for a response to my sent email gives me anxiety, formulating another response to the said email gives me anxiety. Sometimes after sending such emails, I have to close the entire mailbox just to feel better.
But the thing is, this only happens when I am sending such emails to my superior. It gets worse when I have to send a follow-up email because they haven’t responded and I need to tick a box!
Anyways, I have found a means to help me manage this better. Scheduled emails, what a blessing! I just schedule the email to send in either 5 minutes to a day depending on how urgent it is and voila, it gets sent without me having to brood over it.
Let me know if you ever experience this and how you deal with it!
