I’ve worked in corporate american the majority of my life. I never thought I would still be here after 37 years. In an office, in a cubicle, no privacy, no enjoyment. Don’t get me wrong! I’m very good at what I do, but its a job, not a profession. It has always been a job.
When I’m busy working and someone stops to ask a question, I don’t always look up but I do answer their question. I’m very short sometimes with my answers. People get very offended by this and take me as a very rude, crude and abrupt person.
I’m not and it is hard for me to change that! I wear my heart on the outside of my body! So its very hard for me to understand how people can look at you and smile and want to be your friend and then turn around and stab you in the back!
How we see ourselves and how others see us is often very different. For the most part, I try not to let it bother me, but when people intentionally do something to hurt you, it really pisses me off. If you are mean to me, I cannot turn the cheek and not be mean back. I wasn’t built that way!
The point to this post is think about how you see yourself and how others see you! You may find it very interesting how people think about you. For me, it doesn’t really matter as long as you do your job and it doesn’t hamper my job.
