Last week I got really frustrated about being treated unfairly by a colleague. I worked my fucking ass off and this guy rather read the paper than helping me out. It is not the first time he’s done this. So I asked why he’s not willing to give me a helping hand. He just said it was always like that and I shouldn’t make such a rebellion as I’m not the boss. He isn't either. In fact, he’s in the same position as me. Just by describing this situation to you I get angry.
I always had this strong sense of justice. I don’t like being treated unfairly or seeing the unfairness happening to someone else. I can get furious in such situations. I mean it’s common sense helping someone out who’s struggling if you can, right?
I know a lot of you feel the same way. Everybody’s been treated unfairly at one point. No matter if it’s your colleague getting more reward for a similar task, you’re driving your friends to the club and they never offer to return the favor or simply being accused of something you haven’t done. You feel used, betrayed or sometimes just foolish because you're simply too nice.
It’s not always easy to stay calm in such situations and you can’t really avoid unfairness from happening. But thinking of the situation with the lion helps me staying calm. All you can do is be the best version of yourself. Even if other people won’t treat you in a way you would acknowledge as fair, maybe it seems alright to them. Maybe they don’t mean it in a bad way. Maybe they’re doing the best they can. Or maybe they are just giant assholes. You'll never know. I just try to be as fair and kind as I can, with the hope to inspire other people doing the same.
So I TRULY WANT YOU TO KNOW life is unfair, but you don't have to be. Try to let it go and don’t get upset too much about situations or people you can’t control or change anyway. Maybe even ask if you can help them, because you never know how unfair life treated them.
What’s your secret of staying calm?
