Have you ever met a little Napoleon?
There are so many times in life when I have encountered people who have some kind of issue, whether it’s because of the colour of my skin or the way I talk, to the fact that I’m given roles above my qualifications because I strive to perform and deliver when challenged. These little Napoleons find it a bitter pill to swallow and go out of their way to make my life a misery because of it.
Stretch your neck out chick and watch it get chopped off!
That’s how I feel right now.
What is wrong with extending yourself beyond certified capabilities? What is so threatening about a person who fills gaps and fixes holes even if she’s not a builder? I can’t understand these vitriolic members of society who take great pains to insult others and bring them down, or remind them of their documented limitations.
I think you can guess that I’m angry. In fact, I’m furious. But, I refuse to be brought down by a small minority. It’s their own pain, self-doubt or misguided beliefs that bring them down.
Perseverance is the key right now, and honesty and patience. Soon enough, they trip over their own feet. Well, let’s hope my little Napoleon doesn’t completely destroy my fleet of dreams before sanity and hopefully some higher authority step in.
