What makes one can feel secluded & lonely in the workplace —

  • “Oh you don’t drink right, what do you actually do on weekends then?”
  • “Oh you don’t eat non-veg, how do you eat just paneer & greens to stay fit?”
  • “You might fall behind the rest of your teammates if you do not pick up this task”
  • “So, you do not consume cake even on your birthday & your colleagues?”
  • “ Do you count your calorie-intake for every meal?”
  • “How do you wake up at 5 every single day?”
  • “I shop only at Zara, what about yours?
  • “ Why is that you do not apply kajal or have you ever used a lipstick?”
  • “We are going upstairs for a smoke up. I think you would be fine here right? “
  • “Oh you do Gymnastics? Have you ever sprained or injured?”
  • “We play COD, DoTA2 or Poker. But don’t usually play games right?”
    -”You are always the first person leaving the office parties. You gotta go today as well is it?”
  • “When do you take a break from your gym & dance classes?”

In my opinion, people judge no matter what we do. How ambitions & passionate one is towards their extra-curriculars apart from excelling at their work.

I believe we should lend a deaf ear to the people who do not acknowledge to our interests. Favouritism exists everywhere. Do not expect to be one’s favourite & get influenced into bad habits. Please do not get into peer pressure. Be what you are. I understand this might lead to be secluded from the gossips/secrets from work. But that’s not we are here for.
Be GENUINELY You.

It may be irrelevant to the workplace, yet toxic environments lead to mental stress on the employees. What’s your opinion?
