I got played. It was a work context, it was just a colleague – but I thought that it still should be called getting played.
I was neatly maneuvered into a corner. Very neatly. And I went into this whole thing willingly. How stupid could I get?
These are the times when I just hate myself, hate the job. Because, just doing your work right isn’t enough. Success happens to be when you know how to deal with people. When you know how to respond to provocation, and to spot deliberate misguidance a mile away.
I thought I had started to see things, to recognize patterns and signs. Seems that I still have a long way to go.
So what if I got played once. I learned a lesson, and I’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again.
So, don’t give up yet guys…if someone plays you, make sure you don’t give them another chance to do so.
Keep your chin up dear! ❤
