My Labyrinthine Job

It is disastrous to keep working in such a monolithic and hostile environment. Who can be productive among coworkers engrossed with making up stories about others?!. Instead of going to work in order to work and act as a linchpin in your community, you drag yourself to get there and exert your utmost effort not to mingle with them. Bullying, rumors, gloating, backbiting, and criticism are qualities and actions of those who can not move any step forward because they are imbecile, parochial, and toxic. I feel it is inherited, radicalised, and by far difficult to get rid of.

We work to make money and make our lives better off not the reverse!

We work in order to gain experience then we can climb up the career ladder rung by rung, not to face obstacles, dupes, or hatred.

Work comes second after our mental health and well-being, so please unleash yourself and leave.

Your mental health matters
Your happiness matters
Do not justify, mingle, or even respond to such superficiality.

You are a vicegerent created by Allah to instil something beneficial and to coexist. Those who choose to run amok, you cause trouble to yourselves only because of your insolence, ignorance, and animosity.

I feel it will take tens of years to be real humans in the Middle East and even in the west, we can not be treated equally because of stereotypes, hijab, and religious beliefs!

Miles to go before we sleep, and miles to go before we sleep!

  1. It is the human condition, unfortunately, that some people enjoy sowing the seeds of division and disharmony. Just last week at my own job I was confronted by a bullying co-worker. I turned the situation over to God and asked God to open my co-worker’s eyes to the disharmonious behavior. You are absolutely correct about our mental health having to come first. In my blog this morning, I was actually writing about how God has created us all for a purpose. We can’t let the world unsettle us. We have to just focus on God’s purpose for our lives. I enjoy reading your blog. Have a wonderful week ahead!

  2. Sorry to hear that you are experiencing this. I worked at an embassy in Washington, DC, and have to say it was the French women who were not always particularly wonderful, and not particularly enlightened. The Moroccan ladies- both diplomats and local staff – were the more highly evolved. So, it can be a cultural thing, but it’s not just one culture…it’s more what people have always seen around them and think is normal. In my opinion, just by avoiding such behavior and exhibiting honestly and positivity, you can help change the culture at your workplace. Your co-workers might really not know any better!

    1. I totally agree with you! Thanks for your comment, but I don’t have the stamina to take their insolence and lies. I can not reason with ignorance!


      1. Fair enough! I hope your next job puts you around more interesting people! With the amount of time one spends at work, having good colleagues makes a tremendous difference!

  3. I was a little confused who “they” were at first, then realized you are talking about co-workers. When one is in a negative environment, it is hard not to take on the negativity and respond in a negative way. That is what happened to me in more than one situation. Management can be part of the problem or part of the solution. I hope you find some friends who are not in the “us versus them” mode but instead who are into the same philosophy as yourself, i.e. love one another, give your best, no matter what their background is. I agree to take care of yourself and your mental health and get out of the toxic environment. Wish you the best!
