I am at a new job (5 months). I am an Admin. Two of the other Admins clearly do not like me. I am a very compassionate, loving, giving and helpful woman. I like to make a difference in people lives. Most people like me very much. I have these two women telling lies to my boss about me, causing problems and talking about me. I don’t care if they talk about me but the lies are too much. I have turned from a go getter to a sit at my desk and do no more than what I am asked to do.

I do not know how to handle this. The situations that have occurred has changed me. I feel like I am walking on egg shells. I got laid off after 10 years at my other job and job hopping is not something I want to do. I am 50 and feel like I am in middle school. I want to cuss them out and I also want to defend myself. Neither seem right because I should not have to defend myself on things I don’t do wrong. I am just at a loss of what to do.
