I haven’t posted since a while now, not because I had nothing to say but because I had nothing interesting to share.
When I started this blog a few months back, my idea was to share the experiences of my life and to focus on the lessons learned, this is still my main objective but I decided to add a little spice to samosa blog by writing about the things that don’t make me happy or that purely disgust me. As a close friend said to me it is important to show the different facet’s of my ever so complex personality ;)
In my work, I try as much as possible to avoid pointing fingers at my co-workers when mistakes are made, for the simple reason that we all make mistakes and it is counterproductive in the long run for any organisation or work relationship.
The reason why I mention my work “ethics” is primarily because there is a huge amount of jealousy in France and it is only since I started working that I realise it is an ever growing cancer in our society.
What made it all click was a conversation with an old friend who wanted to send me a PowerPoint presentation about the advantages French rail workers had.
He was outraged by these benefits and during the whole conversation all I could think about was why he felt so angry at them when really he should be glad for them.
The fact of the matter is that there lives a sentiment that we should all have living and work conditions that are equal. Reaching some sort of balance would be a fantastic thing and I believe this is what most citizens on this planet wish for every single day.
Nevertheless, I have the feeling that most citizens would rather pull others down than hoist themselves up. I personally am happy that French rail workers have advantages even though I don’t have those advantages in my work, but I do have other advantages that make up for this gap that disturbs so many of our citizens.
It is hard for me to be faced with individuals who look at our society with a self centred point of view as if the French rail worker was reaching into his pocket and was thus making the individuals life worst.
Human being have never managed to survive individually, teamwork is always more productive than working alone, having someone in your life is always better than being alone so why do people view society and its mechanics as a one way street that leads to them?
I am tired of hearing people complain egoistically about their problems in a system that attempts to care for them and amazingly succeeds a great deal.
Be grateful of what you have, always wish for more and fight for it, the French rail workers did and so can you.
Until the next post,
