An Open Letter to My Old Employer.

Dear Snakes -

            I was hopeless, and lost, and confused. I thought I had nowhere else to go, nowhere else to run and you took advantage of that. You took advantage of my moments of weakness, and used them against me to your own advantage. You lied to me and lead me in the direction you wanted, and in your own hearts secretly celebrated my downfall.
            When I first began working for you, I told myself I would just suck it up, and man it out. I told myself I was strong enough to survive between snakes, and worms. I forced myself to believe your lies, to believe this would only be a temporary position, to believe that things were progressing, and that I could help you down the right path, a path of success for all of us.
            Looking back, I now see the error of my ways. I should have run fast and far from your deception. I look back and I can only blame myself for staying around enduring your negligence, and lack of professionalism. Nobody is perfect, I realized that, and I realized that all of us have our shortcomings; I have my shortcomings as well. The difference is that I wake up every day with the goal of overcoming my inadequacies, and becoming a better person in the areas that matter, unfortunately I cannot say the same of you.
            During the first months of working for you I tried my hardest to believe that I would eventually be working in a better position. Instead I found myself doing more and more activities I was not accustom to doing, and even so I force myself to master these tasks to no avail.  Both of you told me you needed help building your business, but your pride and hubris was an obstruction to this. Instead of becoming team players you built yourselves a pedestal of shit to sit on, and pontificate from. I tried my hardest to ignore your attitude of superiority, everyday I tried, but it became insufferable.
            I just don’t understand you people!  I don’t understand how you could ever think that you are actual professionals, let alone business owners. Both of you are workers running a façade, ignorant of the reality of you imminent failure. How could you ever think that you are doing this correctly. You refused to take any of my advice, and in my face you laughed and mocked me. You were cowards, you were hypocrites, you were liars, and yet I still tried to help you. I tried my hardest, but it was futile, you succeeded in chasing me away for good.
            Most of the things I said to you were for your own good, trying to make everyone’s life easier, but your incompetence hindered all of that. I had all of the skillsets you needed in order to be successful, and you chose not to use me for the things you actually needed help with. That was your decision, not mine, so please stop trying to guilt me about leaving, you had two years of opportunity that you chose to squander away.
            Honestly, I have nothing against either one of you, though you seem incapable of understanding the kind of person I am. One of you no longer exists in my world, and the other only exists by force. I am not the kind of person who will allow others to bend me until I break, I am not one who will bow a knee, and give tributes to those who do not deserve them, and most of all I am not one who will accept your repentance. You made your decisions now live with them, as do I.
            The amount of insolence I put up with from you people has been incredible! Never in my life, my entire life have I been talked down to in the manner in which I was talked down to by you people. Treated as if I were simply an object of your wielding. Your actions speak volumes about your character, and I almost have sympathy on you for it, because I know you wont get far with that attitude. The amount of energy wasted circumventing your childish games, and lack of reason, it was exhausting. I can only hope that one day you people can mature, and cast off the ignorance that you wear as a cloak. You are a perfect couple, and just like the snakes that you are you surround yourself with those of your kind, bound in hatred, and barred from success. I can almost conjure up a feeling of pity for you, almost.

            The truth is you never knew me, none of you, and you most likely never will. I can only hope that you share the same sentiment of lack of regret that I do. And so it is with a lack of any sentiment that I depart. I depart for my own good, for my own growth, and mental health, because in all honesty you just aren’t worth my time anymore, bye and good luck you will need it.
