In his famous and undeniably inspiring 2005 Stanford commencement speech, Steve Jobs said, "I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me."
Why? Because after an event that could have left him forever depressed, he instead went on to found NeXT and Pixar, met the love of his life, and then returned to Apple where he led one of the most amazing turnarounds in the history of corporate America.
In his speech, Jobs attributes all these accomplishments to his "very public failure" at Apple:
"I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith."
Such it is with a Bad Boss. Right now, it feels terrible, like you’ll never get out from under this abusive, horrendous Boss.
But like Jobs, don’t lose faith. Never stop seeking the opportunities, resources, co-workers and mentors who can help you onwards and upwards.
