Do you ever come across those people who swear they want to “help you” but you feel as though they have other interior motives?
I have come across many intelligent individuals within my school and personal career & many of them in deed like to help out others who may not understand certain material as quick or as well as them. Then there are those who think they are better than you, smarter, wiser & wittier. They like to make you feel as though you are beneath them in one shape or form.
I personally ask for help when I need it, when I truly feel as though I need some assistance, advice, etc. What I don’t like is to feel belittled, inferior and or being interrogated. I acknowledge the older & wiser. It is one thing to be helpful and another to be condescending. Do they get satisfaction out of seeing you squirm and search for answers? I don’t like to be constantly questioned and attacked.
When I am at work I like to work and fulfill my job duties and when I am in school I like to be the studious student. But when I am at work, that is my FREE time and if chose to shun out some learning until class then that is my choice. I hate when people try to put/push things onto me. Work is work, School is school. Two different atmospheres.
I am all for learning new things, gaining knowledge but it’s another when I am being interrogated/questioned about things to make me feel smaller and beneath you. I don’t like people who try to sway and change me into believing what they believe, see what they see, act they want me to act, do what they want me to do, etc. I am my own person and individual with my own mind, morals, values, and thoughts and if I don’t let people push me over and that makes me STUBBORN then SO BE IT!
(My second part-time job is in a little bit of a laid back setting, I care for a man with Parkinson`s disease who is a retired teacher who quite often tries to “teach” me things and goes about it the wrong way.)
Lord give me patience!!!! 🙂
