Dear employees



You know what?  Sometimes you just have to suck it up.  Life isn’t always roses and sweet little pastiches of all the films that suck your common sense out and replace it with unfounded expectations of what the universe owes you.  Sometimes things are fucked.

Even when it isn’t your fault.

But that my friends is life and you have two choices, opt out or get on with it.  For those of you choosing to adopt the former strategy, I would like to place a quick disclaimer*.  No amount of whinging and whining is going to make it better.  I don’t know where you got the idea it was going to be different from?

So just buck up the attitude, accept that from time to time things don’t go your way and focus on the things that are good, the things that are positive and the things that make you feel alive and not one of the walking dead.  See you’re feeling better already.

It won’t change your life, it won’t change your environment, it won’t even stop bad things happening to you. But it might make you a nicer person to be around and it will, as sure as hell, make my life a whole load better.



*The owners of this blog would like to point out that in no way are they responsible for you losing the will to live, unless you have read more than three of our blog posts in one sitting at which point we sympathise with you wholeheartedly

    As an employee, I must say that I’m shocked, confused and also quite a bit disgusted by this post. Aren’t you HR guys supposed to be all pink and fluffy, compassionate, supportive and nurturing? Your job is to make me feel good, even if you have to lie sometimes.

    But as an HR professional, all I have to say to this article is: thank you!
