this has led to another colleague (B), who doesn't like her, thinks the first colleague is dangerous (A), tries to warn me against her, & in a sense even use me as a weapon to get back at her. at lunch today, B and I were having lunch with C. B tried to get me to tell C about the bad things A had done. Every time B talked about the bad things she claims A did, C says that we shouldn't do such things, & says what's the right thing that should be done, ostensibly telling B that that's what A should have done, but I can tell that she's objectively telling me that this is what I should do!
I didn't wanna help her cos it's not my job, but in the past I wanna help others cos the Bible said so. B said, "who are you trying to be, Jesus Christ?"
I said, "yes."
and B said, "你干麻呢? 你做不到的 - 你又不是圣人." I have a reputation in the office for being too soft and kind, like a lamb that's waiting to be slaughtered.
Did I do the right thing? Telling B off in the email destroyed the relationship between B & me, destroyed the reputation that I've sought to build up, put me in a bad light to my boss & colleagues, endangered my Current Estimated Potential, put me in a precarious position cos there's been many times my colleagues have been nice & magnanimous to me & now they can always choose not to, unleashed greater politics in the office, & failed to glorify God there too.
Do I have a single friend in the office? In the office everyone has no permanent frens, just permanent interests.
