I want to say something to you:
Always be nice.
Even with the ones who are playing and plotting against you.
Because everyone is an irreplaceable parent or son or daughter of someone.
Everyone is fighting a battle we don’t know of.
And, we don’t know which one will be our last one.
It was a delay in delivery of work from one of our delivery partners.
What was supposed to be delivered in two days, was easily and conveniently taking a week.
In the first week itself, they broke several promises.
As a result, I was asked to be stern with them. Which I did.
In the coming week, they again faltered.
This time I became stern without being asked to.
As a result, I was told to be the nice and kind girl, and let the sternness be the game of the seniors.
Which made me think: I let go of my original nature of being kind, it only backfired on me.
I am known for being kind and compassionate, however, I let go of my real original nature (which, in fact, is a good virtue to possess) and that backfired on me.
Lesson learnt: NEVER let go of your goodness, even when the world wants you to.
