Meaning doing things to mess up your potential to achieve a promotion or a better opportunity
I'm sure those types exist yes. Motives vary, might be it's you or them, or simply envy, jealousy, or pettiness; "If I can't have that promotion no one will". Whether it's common or not I have no idea, I'd like to think it's rare for someone to intentionally sabotage someone's career.
I was subjected to so much bullying in my time at university that I had no clue what was real, fake, kindness or calculated demise.It was coming so thick and fast that I actually have been in a traumatised state. Depressed and pretty much losing my mind. No one deserves to go through what I have, no one. Just because I'm not the traditional type of person for this course.It messed with me real rotten especially as my subject matter isn't exactly the most palatable. I was addressing a topic from a point of learning since my life's existence has constantly been a point of questioning anquish and pain without sounding too dramatic. From childhood I have been subject to this abuse.
Wronged how? Wronged for seeing someone for the first time that's not mean, that's kind and actually good at what they do?
As I said, jealousy is an option. But, there's also the fact that some people don't like to admit they have faults or are wrong about something. If you are first in line for a promotion, but then the company finds someone who is more qualified and has more experience than you, even if you know logically that that person is better for the position, you would still be jaded in some way.And you can be the nicest person on Earth, and be completely selfless, but there's going to be instances where someone is going to get hurt because of you.
I made a massive cock up. I was warned off from my course by a tutor, and nasty students saying nasty things. My retaliation was to say the wrong things at the wrong time. Meaning being asked a question about something I ended up calling out things the students told me. Ie "the university won't help you on your journey!"So in a meeting with a professional person I said " so I've been told that this industry isn't so receptive to people like me." of course there was silence and complete shock. But I was told to do more and better research.
