Hard Lesson

One thing that is hard for me to learn and understand is that in the end, wherever you work, the only person looking out for your best interests is you. You may think that other people want to treat you fairly, but in the end, they will always choose what is best for them over what is fair for you. 

I guess it's obvious, and I guess I'm too trusting. People are always on the look out for your mistakes, for some way to point out to the powers that be that they are in some way better than you. It may be under the guise of caring or of accountability, but it's not. It's just oneupmanship. 

To each his own I guess. I just wish I was a faster learner.

Sigh. I have learned this the hard way, over and over. I hate being burned by others, especially when you thought they were REALLY your friend, ya know?
