This is fucked up, but um, totally sitting here realizing that we all need to as a species; as a human race need to be kind.
It’s kinda weird like no one teaches you this growing up; it’s grossly rare because not anyone really teaches you that. Don’t get me wrong not saying schools don’t teach you this stuff like we can all remember the paradigm in school always being something along the lines of “be nice to people” .
“Well hey I’m not school. I work full time so how does this apply to me?”
Additionally, yes when you work in an office there are defiant standards of behavior; codes of ethics everyone has to follow which is all obvious common sense nonsense, all of it can be great, but what makes it so empty is the lack of emphasis on just kindness and I think like just all around being friendly. .
Look I get it we all are experiencing a competitive life, but you can still be kind and friendly to people while facing competition. This is why am such a geek for Jujitsu because everyone that I witness in Jujitsu no matter how competitive and insanely obsessed to the point of being saturated by madness, all of them harnessing that amount of fury are some of the coolest most polite, kind and friendly savages you can ever want to meet, like they are just fun to be around one hundred percent ya know? Get me? Be cool to people you silly bitch this thing doesn’t work unless we do together. .
This nasty attribute we all have is because there is safety, there is rules, and in the workplace the rules are much more nebulous. .
“Hey it’s kinda hard to be kind to someone who is intentionally trying to fuck me over; man I totally feel what you are saying, but where kissing your bosses ass/ sabotaging a project; is that part of being competitive or is all of that over the line?”
It’s hard to compare that in Jujitsu because you will get called out on a foul. I mean wow that’s really fucked up right? Like can you imagine you are working your ass off on something and some asshole is just doing whatever they can to sabotage it? .
Man that really bums me out. It’s so unpractical how fucked up we can be to each other; we are all just human beings.
