Lately, I have been reading about the need to show kindness to others, and it made me realize about a situation. Each one of us is going through different experiences. Some may be going through difficult moments. So being aware of how we deal with others would probably be nice. If only we can always do this, wouldn’t it be a better world for us?
But that doesn’t happen every day because there would always be that one selfish human being out there. I had a recent experience that made me feel so bad, which I need to write about. Hoping that through this way, I can express my emotions and release the negativity.
There was this real estate training that I attended with my husband, and which costed some money. I didn’t have any expectations and went there with an open mind. I only wanted to maximize the learning that I can get about something that was new to me. But getting to that training was very stressful for me because being a full-time mom, my concern would always be my kids, and it wasn’t easy finding a way who would take care of them.
Then came the actual training day, there were 3 facilitators for the event. There were the key speaker and his two colleagues who were to help out with the one on one consultations. I thought it was a great idea to have that kind of activity because we would have the chance to ask our questions. But it turned out that that consultation killed everything for me.
While the speaker was good and very informative, this person assigned to our one on one was rude. He was so self-centered, and never asked anything about us except how much money we had. I realized he was only checking if we could afford the amount for the next set of training which would cost at least $21,000. It was all so offensive for me, and I have never encountered such rudeness.
I didn’t expect that kind of attitude because he should be professional and also was a possible mentor. Instead of feeling encouraged and inspired, I felt the opposite. It made me feel down and insecure. And I realized that it made me so angry because I shouldn’t have let him do that. He didn’t have the right.
I have moved on. But because I haven’t shared my real emotions and thoughts on it, there is that nagging feeling. And it doesn’t feel nice. In the end, I started to feel that being there wasn’t worth it. We paid a few thousand dollars, kept me away from my kids for long hours only to have that kind of treatment. It is not fair, and I didn’t deserve that. No one deserves that kind of treatment.
No one has the right to trample on anyone because each one of us is going through something in our lives. If only we could spread kindness instead of apathy, then fewer people would also feel hate.
Nobody needs that kind of attitude. No one wants a negative vibe.
