The sweet smell of unsuccess

Today, it marks the 3-month anniversary of adopting the 'I don't have the slightest chance at success' attitude at work. In those 3 months, my boss, my coworkers and my boss's boss have all agreed and our relationships have greatly improved. FML

It’s funny the EXACT same thing has happened to me. I just kind of stopped caring, don’t really speak up as much, and do the bare minimum. I started doing that when I realized my boss only ever wants to hear what she wants to hear, and my opinion doesn’t matter at all, ever, unless it’s confirming a conclusion she already made, even though it’s supposed to be a collaborative office environment and I’m supposed to be an advisor.

For me, it is an indication of a toxic work environment and I’m actively trying to leave. That could be the case for you. Hopefully not, though, and the changes actually make you feel better about going to work.
