Last week something happened which lead to a conversation I had with a much older friend who's been in the workforce for longer than I have been. He said "Nwando to get by in this life, especially at work, you have to be a bitch. Stop trying to please people or trying to make people like you. It won't work to your advantage."
I explained that I wasn't going out of my way to please anyone or to make anyone like me, I would just much rather live/work in an environment where everyone is cordial, or civil at the very least. I don't go to work to make friends but that doesn't mean that I would pick hostility over friendliness. I mean, why can't we all just get along?
He begged to differ. That should be the least of your concerns Nwando; at least you get your respect and before anyone tries any shit with you they first say "Ha! That one has madness o! Don't mess with her".
But I still maintained my stand and we were at loggerheads so I'm throwing it open to the house;
Would you rather be feared or loved?
