My Unsent Letter: For the Person who Unseen ME
5 months ago · · Inspire,
I am not mad at you. A little disappointed, I guess.
I am not being arrogant, but I know what I can offer to the table.
At work, I barely engage with small talk with people because I don't find their conversations interesting. I don't want to mingle with fake people who try to be somebody else which they aren't. We know for a fact that they cannot afford such lavish lifestyle hence talking about it all the time, to me it is not my cup of tea and even gossiping about other people is not part of small talk that would interest me.
So, to make myself busy, I work and spend most of the time with my patient's hearing their interesting life stories. You would love to talk to people not your age you will life perspective that is new to you and you can always learn a thing or two if not, you will hear a story. I couldn't guarantee a good story all the time but a story not your own story is still a good one.
Ok, enough with the back story. I am not sure why you find it hard to recognize my skills and abilities, and compare me to someone who had obvious work errors (causing patient harm) over me, no error no complains and able to do more than that is should. I am not a kiss ass kind of person but I know work and I know what I can offer to the table.
And so, I took someone else's offer to promote me. Oh, again I am not mad at you.
Actually, I would like to say thank you. You made me work on myself even harder making myself better, and people get to know how I am doing so well with my job, which you didn't see. And promoted someone who causes error, my manager has no problem making report and attending audits because she had me in her unit, I was doing my job flawlessly, no error since I started. Not being arrogant, I am just very keen to details and I give my heart to what I do.
I am not happy that you are having difficulty with who you have chosen.
I guess, when people didn't choose us...
We should be ok about it, no need to resist and fight over it.
Just walk away... keep your head up...
(I know letting go and walking away isn't the easiest way out but it is for the best. You don't need to win every battles and besides who cares about winning, sometimes losing something doesn't even mean losing at all especially if you learn from it and if you still have yourself.)
The right people will find you and see the kind of gem that you are.
