Do you believe?

Last Update: March 18, 2017

It's been a while since I've written a post in WA!

Today I decided to write, because I am not having success in my crappy job!

My husband says that I'm too nice at work and that's why I let them hurt me. He also says that the best defense is the attack and that when someone questions or doubts something related to me, it is best to face them soon and turn the game upside down. If I do this, they will stop messing with me and think twice before they do it again.

The truth is that it works, but I'm not like that ... I'm not used to working with people like this...

Luckily I've never worked in a toxic environment before, but maybe if I had worked I'd be better prepared now ... or not!

It's awful how people can be bad for free! Even without receiving anything in return they have a morbid pleasure in doing harm to others!!

I think they must be very unhappy people! It is sad when the only ambition is to pay attention to the lives of others to harm them! It is to be so attentive to all the details of the lives of others in search of all the small opportunities to harm them ...

That's what I see! It is human smallness!

I shared my office for two years with a colleague whom I called friend and whom I helped personally and professionally! And she ruined my professional career!

We cannot trust anyone! Is this how we have to live?

I don't believe that! I think there are still some fantastic people in the world. People who have a big heart and who help others without expecting anything in return!

I've met some of these people here in WA, and I want to believe in friendship, sharing, love, mutual help, moral values, caring, and much more great values.

I refuse to accept that wickedness is greater than goodness!

I sympathize with you and agree that there are a lot of mean and fake people out there, but there are many angelic people too. Your mindset is the first step in dealing with negative people, if you live a life of gratitude with what you have and expect nothing in return when you help others then you won't be as disappointed when those you help try to do harm to you. I also agree with your husband that you must confront those that bully or gossip to hurt you, I do ... and it works. Wishing you a happy & fulfilled life knowing that this will pass quickly with the right attitude.

Hi Lou from Chicago!

I don't really expect anything in return when I help others, but I do not expect them to hurt me either...

And yes, I tried the confront once and it works... they think twice before messing with me! But the truth is that I don't like to face people with this kind of situations...but I'll probably have to get used to it ...

Thank you for your comment!

I agree with you. I also think, even if circumstances don't work out, that you can never go wrong by being a kind person.

I Drjec!
I agree, but in our society you are not rewarded for being kind ... society rewards bad and corrupt people, the system works and everyone feels comfortable ...
It's true that I can not be wrong for being kind, but the system is made for that kind of people, not for me ...
And sometimes I feel like an outsider ...

Thank you for your comment Drjec

I am right there with you on this. I believe there are many good people, and "like attracts like"; you get back what you give!

Hi Cass!

I agree, you get back what you give... but when?

Do not get me wrong, I really do not expect anything in return, because I am as I am, I don't think I am a great person, I just can't hurt others and I always help when I can. I think this does not make me a fantastic person, it just makes me a normal person and as such, I do not expect anything in return, but I do not expect they want to harm me either ...

Maybe karma is confused ... bad people are being rewarded instead of good people... LOL

Thank you for your comment!
