Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about fear of being fired: I want to be true to myself but I need my much loved job. His bosses love him and barely know me
I feel my boss told his superiors mistruths to fire a subordinate. Now I’m in trouble for going against him. I want to be true to myself but I need my much loved job. His bosses love him and barely know me. What should I do?

Dear Badmouthed Beloved Boss:
In your short description, you don’t disclose how you went against your boss nor do you present evidence that your boss in fact provided misinformation (lies) to justify firing an individual. What is implied is that now you are working scared, afraid that what you have done might adversely affect your job, a job you need and love.
