Two weeks ago, my brother resigned from a job he had in a hotel even before his first month of working is over. Let’s just say that things got ugly in the workplace – ‘ugly’ meaning bullying and stepping on other people for their own sake. Guess it was all too much for my brother that he has to quit at once.
People are mean & selfish!
This is a really UGLY world, unfortunately. 😦
In relation to this, we, Filipinos, are very familiar with the term called ‘Crab Mentality’
Crab Mentality – people tend to do evil & vicious things to pull down other people for their benefit to get higher
Some people couldn’t just be fair. Where is justice, people?!!
So, as my brother walked his resignation paper and talked to the authorities, hoping that some good thing will happen, well, it just became worse. He was even treated like shit (excuse the language). I’m saying this for his sake because the people concerned even made him felt that he is in the wrong position, in fact, he was the person abused in the situation. People in the workplace knew about this stupid behavior yet they tolerate it. So crucial!
It’s not some kind of initiation as they think it is. It is lowering a person’s self-esteem, and it is one of the most terrible and worst things that could happen to an individual. It loses confidence and faith in oneself. Thus, in a worst case scenario, might lead into suicidal.
“You should have fought for yourself.”
These are the words I mentioned to my brother over dinner. (Well, my farewell words before we put this incident all behind us – it was tragic, for my brother)
Every person has the right to fight for themselves in whatever condition that your dignity and your pride are being ruined by others.
WE MUST STEP UP TO SOMETHING WE KNOW IS RIGHT!
Don’t let anyone tell you something that you are not!
I am really not a big fan of negative adjectives. All my life, I hate those bad vibes… It’s very inappropriate to a growing child or even to a person who is trying to find his place in this world.
We must learn how to appreciate the little things, the tiny abilities that one can do.
We are here in this world
not to destroy one another but to build a space for people to grow and to be successful.
Be fair & spread peace!
