I mentioned in an earlier post about being highly sensitive. It is at times when people treat me like s***, that I wish I wasn’t so sensitive.
Have you ever gone out of your way to help certain people, and yet be harassed, yelled at and called ‘dramatic’?
I did so much work over the past two months for these people, ran from one office to the other, one hospital to the other, one bank to the other. I told them a week ago about my inability to do the work for the next few months due to my examinations. One of them refused, saying that I now had the responsibility to do it and why should she? I was shocked.
I did all the work during the last two months, having consideration for the fact that she was old. But when I tell her to take up the work for the next few months, I’m told that I’m insensitive and inconsiderate. Just because she’s old doesn’t give her the right to treat me like dirt!
So I noted down all the things I did over the past two months and sent her a long text message (rather, an essay). And then, when I spoke to her over the phone a few days later, she had the audacity to say, “I’ve never had a problem with anyone in my entire life the way I’ve had a problem with you.”
What the f***!?!?! The dame had the balls to say something like that to me after all the work I’ve done. In her entire existence, it seems that she hasn’t had a problem with anyone, but she surprisingly has a problem with a woman who stands up for herself.
Yes, I am young. Yes, I am compassionate. But I also am human and deserve to be treated with respect, irrespective of age or gender.
To all those who don’t know how to respect others, just like that woman,
After all the crying and the unbearable headaches, I’ve made a conscious decision to not give a f*** about those people anymore.
Do watch this inspirational TED Talk about exactly that :
P. S. Sorry for the foul language, I am just so pissed!
Thank you for reading! Stay blessed!
