I was pleased to hear about the professional downfall of an unprofessional ex-colleague today.
He’d spent way too much energy trying to discredit me in an attempt conceal or detract attention from his own inadequacies.
Sometimes you don’t have to wait too long for people to fall flat on their nasty bitter faces. I didn’t have to do a thing, except sit back and wait.
This may come across as nasty or mean but when someone has subtly bullied and deliberately undermined you for years, it is somehow satisfying to hear that karma has acted swiftly.
Let’s hope he grows from the experience and learns to focus on his own professional growth, developing greater integrity and the skills to do his job, rather than repeat these undignified self-destructive behaviours.
As I say to my students, quoting someone else, “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got”
