5000 questions: part 42

Part Fourty-Three

4101. What is the most difficult thing you have ever overcome?
hmm. i think it was that hellish year i had at work. it was very emotionally-draining. i had a lot of health problems as well. also, my mom got really ill. it was tough dealing with all that and then also having to deal with stalkerish parents who did everything they could to make me feel like dirt. i lost a lot of my confidence that year. i also could not eat because of the stress, i became severely depressed, and my health was failing. on top of it all, my boss would not let me quit or even transfer. i never thought i’d be able to finish the year out, but i did. it hasn’t made me stronger, though. it’s made me, if anything, more paranoid and self-doubting.

4102. What is more imporatnt, how much someone has achieved or how far they have come to achieve it?
that’s something we talk about at work–do we only honor the top-achievers, or the ones that have improved the most? we had both for a while, but then we took away the most-improved one. the most-improved one is usually not the top person, but someone who really worked hard and got pretty far, whereas sometimes the top person was always the top person. you want to give the others a chance, too. but, i think in the real world, it doesn’t matter how far you’ve come, but how much you have in the end. well, we do like rags to riches stories, but i think it’s only those that reach first place, and they may have always had that talent. you rarely hear about the fifth-place winners that came from nowhere, and worked hard to get there.
