If you are a working professional, you spend most of your waking hours at work (now - with your laptop). While we all seek appreciation for our work, it is also true that we may not always get the accolades we deserve. But it gets extremely tough when your boss starts to take you for granted. You are given work at odd hours, you handle the most work yet you are loaded with more, not to forget that you are treated badly too. The fact remains that you put up with these expectations and that's why they are thrust upon you. This sort of relationship can get extremely toxic and debilitating to one's self esteem and confidence. Hence, to avoid this outcome, it is first crucial to look out for signs that your boss is taking advantage of you.
