For the past year I have been applying for jobs in my desired field. Like most 20 something’s, every rejection brings on a sense of injustice.
A combination of rejection in both my personal and professional life has created a negative perspective. This realization or at least omission was brought to my attention this evening.
Earlier this week a Co worker had done something that is a pet peeve of mine. Typically I would brush it off.
Unfortunately I acted on an extremely immature impulse. I decided to say some not nice things. This is never okay, especially in the work place.
I was called out. Rightfully so. I quickly owned up to my misconduct, and quickly felt a blanket of shame wrapping around me. I wondered why, why did I say such a thing? I knew better and it is not in my character to behave in such a manner.
It is important to leave your baggage at the door. Maturity is not a trait that comes naturally to some. Everyone at some point has acted poorly. It is important to remember to treat others how we wish to be treated no matter the circumstance.
Since this confrontation, I have been forgiven by the person I mistreated. I am reminded that ethics, moral constitutions should always play a part in every atmosphere we find ourselves in.
