This morning I was working on my CV by using an app which informed me that this could be a typical tool used by HR when choosing
victims candidates for a job interview.
It gave me tips on how I could make it look like I have done miracles with my career.
But even more interesting, it could actually give me a description of my personality by the way I formulated my words.
I smiled proudly at the postives.
But let me tell you, this app does not sugarcoat the negatives.
It is not so much that I couldn’t bear this “criticism”, I have to admit that the results were not completely off.
But that fact that an app ASSUMES that they know me better than I know myself was one step too far!
“What makes you think you know me?!”, I shouted at the laptop, “Don’t you think there are good reasons behind those negative personality features?!”
The same happens on the blogosphere.
Most likely nobody on WordPress knows you.
Some bloggers choose to stay anonymous.
Others are more open about their life.
Either way, if you follow someone long and solid enough, you might get an idea why they have a certain opinion which isn’t parallel with yours.
My blog is relatively new.
And if you don’t “know” me from my previous blog, it is possible you will raise eyebrows at some of the stuff I write.
Or perhaps even say that I am close minded, non+compassionate and resentful.
But the truth is, I always have a reason why I am expressing a certain opinion.
This is based on an assumption, but I think everyone has their underlying reasons.
But most likely you will not refer to them in every single post, or at all.
I was born in former Yugoslavia, in the early months of the war.
When my parents realized it wasn’t safe anymore, they packed up the essentials and left everything behind.
Money, Family, house, photo’s and their now useless highschool Degree.
Terrible years of insecurity followed until the day both mum and dad ended up in hospital.
Mum was out within a few weeks. Dad stayed for 2 years with severe depression.
Next to the war trauma, both of them dealt their own issues during their youth.
So yeah, if someone just bluntly assumes that a teenager from a wealthy country has a more difficult youth than me, I will spit fire.
I think most of us have been on both ends.
So have I.
I’ve been accused, I have accused.
We hide behind the reason of wanting to raise awareness, but sometimes it seems like a competition of who had it worse.
Do you secretly think you had it worse than all the people around?
Have people ever thought that you always had it good just because now you are doing good for yourself?
Do you usually explain the underlying reasons for an “extreme” opinion?
