This Is What I Have Learnt: It hurts To Have Someone Sidestep you.

After writing the header for today's post, I actually said to myself, before nko. By before nko, I mean that it is obvious that betrayal produces negative emotion. My American friends would have said, duh. 

Betrayal hurts.
What do you do when someone you trust betrays your trust? How do you move on with your own life?

I hope I get the right answers to these questions.

However, my experience so far as taught me that:

1. Betrayal is better now, than later.
2. There are also good people in the world.
3. When people show you who they are, believe them, the first time. That's a quote by Maya Angelou.

4. Forgiveness is important to your moving on . After you forgive, find the courage to block them on Facebook and Instagram.

5. Nobody deserves to be ill-treated. It is not fair. But, I like the bible verse, that says, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

 At the beginning of the year, It was part of my declaration to attract loving people into my life. I guess that if the bad ones are still hanging around, the good ones would have no place to sit.

This Is What I Have Learnt: You Have To Find Strength

This past weekend, I missed a deadline on an important assignment. I just could not find the time to deal with the project because of work. I have to be up at 5:30 in the morning to workout before going to work and I don't return home until 9 at night (after spending 2 hours in commute).

So I just thought that my counterparts who I guess have to deal with the same things I deal with, would equally struggle with getting the assignment done. However, It was a surprise to me that virtually everyone else had completed the task. Many of them had even gone above and beyond with the work.

So I said to myself, there and then, " I have to find the strength to do these things".  And so I have made a decision that no matter how tired I feel, I will try to get work done because I know that there is some reward for going the extra mile.

And trust me, this idea does not have to relate to some high flying task. It is really about doing the right thing at the right time.

Nobody loves to work when they are tired. I know I don't. But find the strength to go one more mile.

You will reap the benefits. You know you will.
