Trying to get over on people ‼️
Sometimes I get on my own self for not being cut throat, throwing people under the bus, or just trying to get over on general. Shit, everyone else is doing it right? I’ve had these things done to me, so why not return the favor?
Then I have to remind myself of who I am. I’m not that person that doesn’t want to see others win. I’m not the person that will step on others to get to where I need to be. I’m not that person that’s trying to get over on you and I’m not that person that’s going to kiss ass to get to where I want to be. 🤷🏽♀️.
Sometimes I do feel like those characteristics are looked at as good (on the low). They just change the wording.. “she’s ambitious” or “she doesn’t let anything get in her way.”
Be great but not at the expense of others. I can win without putting someone else down. We definitely live in a society where it’s “me or you”. And sometimes that’s fucked up!
I’ve always been told never let the things that have happened to me or happen to me change the person I am. Let me tell ya…that shit is hard. Hard being a team player when you’re around people that will throw you under the bus without a second thought. Hard being a hard worker when your work is overlooked or taken for granted. Hard being genuine or nice if your kindness is taken for a weakness.
So what do you? Whatever the hell makes you happy. I choose to change my surroundings 🤷🏽♀️. I don’t want to be around people to who ambition means shitting on everyone else. Or that I have to compromise my morals or values to succeed.
I have heard that you have to “play the game” sometimes, but know that there’s a difference between playing the game and losing yourself.
There are people like me who still value genuine people and who you are as a person rather than what you have. I’m just saying.
