A Life lesson to hold on too
One life lesson i will always hold on to is that straight trees get cut first.
I love people who do extra efforts and hardwork but unfortunately the world is quite demanding and a pretty selfish place to be at .
Since childhood i have seen people being take for granted for an instance i remember the smartest kid in our class . I saw people talking behind there backs and on there face they would ask for favors like in making assignments or copying there work . They would never invite them at their birthdays but act as friends when they had a favor to ask for .
I also have seen my dad being over worked by his banking colleagues as they would make him incharge of keeping the keys which means he had to wake up really early because he had to open the bank and he had to be the first to arrive in office . This wasn't even his job. But because he was punctual and hardworking he was often taken for granted . One occasion i remember my dad being sick he had dengue fever and his manager was denying his leave because they said he was required there as he was the most efficient at maintaining check balance for the accounts . Which literally still breaks my heart. They made him work late hours by saying the internees didn't know how to perform a task . He was performing tasks that weren't his responsibilities and because of this we rarely saw our father at home . This was one of the reasons why my dad took an early retirement because of all the load of work affecting his mental health .
In life its very important to be hardworking and smart but don't let people take advantage of you . World is really cruel and sometimes its better to be a little crooked tree than a straight one .
