I can’t believe it.
Mark Ronson - Oh My God feat. Lily Allen
I’ve become close to a young lady at the magazine, even though she works in a completely different department. Well, there aren’t too many people who look like we do in the office, I guess that’s how we found each other. She really helped me during a rough day at work, the day that I just wanted to walk through those double doors and never return. She was a great comfort.
Today it seems I have returned the favor. My friend stopped by my desk to tell me of some hardships she was facing in the office.
She was so composed in our discussion. I am so proud.
After we talked, I was beyond livid. I ran out of the building to walk off my anger. To cry, to scream for my friend, for all of us.
If any of you have ever faced discrimination at your work place, I’m not even sure if you can take solace in the fact that you are not alone. But you are not alone. You are also, as we all are, so much better than this. I told my friend that whatever the outcome, she’ll come out on top, and better for it. I know this.
Don’t let this eat you alive. This isn’t all there is, and it doesn't determine or undermine your self-worth. We were all meant for so much more.
Knock me down and I’ll get right back up again
I’ll come back stronger than a powered-up Pac Man
