I like to think of myself as very nice and fun to be around.
I joke with everybody.
I also tend to be attracted to hanging around support staff versus those in my position.
Yesterday, I was confronted with some drama.
I hate drama! Especially when it’s totally unexpected.
I could see if I was gossiping or had beef but to know I did none of that and I still got drama, kills my soul.
I was very upset when the person said that I was disrespectful and inconsiderate because I followed through. I did what I was supposed to do but they didn’t want to recognize that because they didn’t do what they were supposed to do, they didn’t follow through.
I had some choice words and I felt myself getting louder and louder – so I decided to leave.
I was fuming out the ears.
I told myself that all is forgiven. But all is not forgotten.
I truly believe in restitution.
When you do someone wrong, you need to apologize.
I saw here today, and she give this fake ass smile and says, “Hello!! Nice dress.”
I reluctantly mumbled, “thank you.”
I am not going to be smiling in your face and pretending everything is all good when I know it aint.
For you to come at me like that when seconds ago we were laughing. I was cracking jokes and we were having a merry ol time.
And then the entire mood changed, and I was getting yelled at (in front of everybody) and I was told that I was basically a brat.
Even if she apologizes, I will never go back to cracking jokes and being all friendly with her because I feel like our relationship wasn’t genuine.
I will forever be cordial and respectful of her and everyone else, but the line has been drawn. We good but we aint great – like we use to be.
Peace in the
