I am confident that a majority of persons would agree with me in saying that having to put forth significant effort in a situation in which others are putting forth minimal effort is incredibly frustrating. Whether it be in the workplace, in school, in friendships, familial relationships or intimate relationships, acknowledging that your efforts outweigh the efforts of others consistently is unfair and unjust.
I have encountered this disproportionate equilibrium more than once in my own life, therefore I know just how irritating it can be. It is easy to convince oneself that you’re being friendly, or that perhaps your excess contributions to somethings no are required, and perhaps in some situations this is the case. For a majority of circumstances, however, this fails to be true, and unfair efforts become your responsibility.
I have found that expressing yourself in frustration in regard to the situation you believe you are prioritizing more than others can be effective. Sometime the other individuals involved acknowledge their limited efforts and begin to show more of a contribution. Unfortunately, this acknowledgement does not always occur, leaving equilibrium disrupted and yourself angry.
One thing to keep in mind in these aggravating situations is that your heightened work ethic will certainly be of advantage to you for the remainder of your life. Unbalanced circumstances in which you have contributed far more than others is not necessarily a competition; rather, they are opportunities to recognize your commitment to a task and your dedication to completing something properly. Seize these situations as lessons to benefit yourself overall, and to further acknowledge that you possess a valuable skill you can exercise use of for a long time in all situations.
Stay calm, voice your opinions and continue to work hard. Your efforts will be noted and will pay off in the long run.
