I am at work with not much to do but with many thoughts circulating my head. One Person that I do not directly work a long side, but work in the same department has decided that the do not like me. Reasons are well apparent when they influence others to glance my direction while they are speaking and I over hear the phrase, “you’re mean”. I know some of the things this person has said but for the sake of not shedding light on nonsense I will not reiterate it. Why is insulting others in a group setting so appealing and attractive? I haven’t aggravated or provoked this person, but strangely enough since the moment I have started this job (2010), this has gone on. I could come to the conclusion that I am so tired of it, but I am so encouraged by the reality that my life and death doesn’t depend upon who says what about me. Also, I think insults are deeply correlated to self esteem meaning how the other person views themselves (not my problem).
“You’re mean” is absolutely correct as well as being ignorant. With the exception of one person I don’t get a long with, I have absolutely no issue with anyone I work a long side, and to be spoken of amongst others rudely is quite annoying. I’m glad I am maturing.
