I am facing a sense of dread these last few days. While I am excited to see my students and meet new ones, there is a coworker whom I’m dreading to have to interact with again. This person is very toxic and damaging, and I’m not quite sure I have a good strategy yet to deal with them. Thus, the sense of dread I feel is growing day by day. I’m trying not to let this feeling dampen my usual back to school excitement, but it’s tough.
For today’s writing prompt, write about how you deal with a sense of dread.
