Thank you for coming here!
It is not new that many people are subject to abusive workplaces.
I am no exception.
The typical pattern for me is:
First, I want to be a very good employee. So I take everything on myself, even though I feel uncomfortable.
If the boss is overly and unnecessarily picky on me (actually, many times it is because the boss himself gets picked on by his boss and tends to over-prepare and dwell on the details), I will force myself to think I am not good enough and need to improve my work.
If the boss has a work style that interrupts my life (e.g. calls after 9pm almost everyday and many times for completely worthless matters), I will try my best to adapt, on the expense of the wellbeing of me and even my family
