Shit Happens

And we know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Why is the first question that comes to mind when we find ourselves confronted with certain situations in our lives despite ourselves?

No matter how hard I try to understand human behavior, nothing is working. I understood that those who remain upright speak the truth that is the reward in life. People have not stopped pissing me off for the past two months, but you know what, I stay, and I will remain straight, faithful to my values and principles. I won’t cheat to get anything.

 I have always followed this adage, today more than ever, it allows me to look in the mirror be proud of who I am and what I have accomplished so far. I have no regrets, and I know that everything that happens to us is not necessarily correct; what makes the difference is our reaction to our behavior in the face of these trials. I don’t need to be loved, but respect is required regardless of the situation. 

I don’t care about people’s affection who have no moral value. They do not realize by their actions and lies how they can destroy other people’s lives. All this for what? Materials, greed, getting a promotion by lying about the work of their colleagues!

I’m not interested in being part of a company that values lying to hard work. No way! It doesn’t benefit anyway.

Sooner or later, fundamental skills determine the value of our work. I choose and will always choose this path. It takes me time to recognize my current weight; I’m ok with that. It will be the fruit of my righteousness, professional skills, and nothing else when this moment comes.

It also allows me to forge my character. I’m not a victim – it will be wrong to know me – and indeed, they know me badly. But, I’m no longer fighting and will not waste my skills and values in a company that lacks integrity.

I’m looking for a company to put my skills in the common good and make them grow, and feel proud to contribute to his development with the same moral and professional values as me.

I’m proud of who I am and what I have accomplished. My soul is at peace, and in God’s eyes, I know he knows who I am. In any case, three things cannot remain hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. 

I don’t pretend to do or be what I’m not. That’s all that matters to me, and the rest, in the end, is only a life lesson.

Thank you, Rebecka, for encouraging me to be better without you knowing it, without you doing much. Thank you for giving me the idea to share this story.
