Sometimes, even if you know how it works doesn't mean you can break it or escape from it. It's always gonna be the whole system against you. And most likely, you will lose

"Sometimes, even if you know how it works doesn't mean you can break it or escape from it. It's always gonna be the whole system against you. And most likely, you will lose."

Dragging ourselves out of our precious bed every damn morning (every damn evening for those who are night shifts) is a real struggle. It's one of the most real things that we face day by day as employees. A lot of us has been complaining. Some feel #blessed. It actually depends on the person's preferences, and how he or she weigh the aspects. 

Motivation is not common these days, though some are comfortable with mindless optimism. People who are aware, and I am saying completely aware of their situation, tend to see things according to the right rotation of the world, not messing it up with nonsense but just mere reality, happen to be stuck on the ground and fearful of doing any step. What the hell is that? Yes, we are really good with that. The art of waiting.

Same as you, other people on the same ground you're stepping on does wait as well. 

It's normal to fuck up at work sometimes, especially when the demands of the job not necessarily match your qualities (But how come you got hired? Blame the incompetent recruiter). And please, sometimes, your awareness doesn't mean you have an eject button to escape the deadly crash.

We're not being pessimistic here. We're just being realistic.

Now, it's okay to be frustrated. You are no numb from the sting in the office. Constructive dismissal is not subtle. It is a slow killing process until you are forced decide to leave already. Here are some signs that your boss is planning to get your ass out of the system:

1. You are no longer assigned to any project or your involvement is getting less. We don't want to be devalued. It hurts our ego. The boss actually wants you to feel that you can't be a part of the company anymore.

2.  Even your coworkers are starting to treat you like you don't exist anymore. They don't invite you to lunch or they don't include you on after work parties.

3. Who gives respect to someone who doesn't appeal as important anymore?

4. No matter how great you've done it, you won't even see a thumbs up.

5. You are either transferred to another office or being given tasks that are not related to your job. One way of saying "We'll give you a job that mismatches your skills." I don't have to state the obvious, right?

So when it goes down to that, you better polish your resume now.

You know how the system works, and to remind you, you are alone. You are facing the system. You against the system. Should I continue to explain the obvious?

A healthy working environment is essential for someone to enjoy and love his or her job. Rejection in a working place cannot be endured for such a long time.

You better GTFO of that place if you can't stand it any longer, or if you feel like it is indeed a Constructive Dismissal, go file a case. Yet, of course, it could be tricky and you may end up losing. It is recommended to talk to a legal counsel first and study how things would go if you are really on the edge of filing a case.
