Well, this would be a different approach.
I can’t say that I agree with all of this. I do believe that holding on to one’s spirituality is a good way to cope with workplace bullying/toxicity. I’m just not sure if the way it is expressed in this article is an optimal way to deal with someone with a Machiavellian persona.
I know I would have found it difficult to pray for my tormentors. I’ve never found the “love your enemies” rule to be something I can easily do. Nope – just can’t see myself saying “I know you’re trying to ruin my career, but I love ya anyway, man!” If that makes me a bad person, so be it.
Please read the article and comment if you would like to add your thoughts.
