is it wrong to stop and listen to someone?
that might be my problem.
it’s sad that we live in a forest that being emphatic is wrong.
is it better to completely shut yourself down and become a robot?
so the pretty vixen sent me this:
…after a situation i had today…
there was a snow fox who came in for an interview last week.
he told me his sob story he needed to get a job like ASAP.
he was down to his last and had no money for rent or food.
he’s been on interview after interview with no calls back.
ya’ll know i could relate to that
so i listened and actually felt sorry for him.
sidebar: a foxholer reminded me that their “poor” is different than ours.
well he ended up getting the job,
but ever since he did,
he has switched the fuck up.
this same snow fox,
who was nearly in tears,
is suddenly acting brand new.
he will look straight at me and walk past my desk.
i had to realize that this is just how some folks are.
folks be fake af out here.
it’s all about character.
all they know how to do is be phony.
i had to wonder…
When does being fake ever stop?
when cubs come in the picture?
Are fakes doomed to a life of constantly climbing ladder after ladder and burning bridge after bridge?
i don’t want to live a life like that.
i like to listen and help because i’m use to genuine folks in my life.
i need to also realize not everyone is like me or the folks around me.
lowkey: the same foxholer sent this to me…
“No one can make it in the corporate world alone though.
Gotta have allies”
that speaks for every career as well.
