Forced into Collaboration

In a world wherein group projects, team works, partners in reporting, paper works in three, it is undeniable – collaboration always takes place.

In our society, since we are born into this world, we are oblige to collaborate and establish a harmonious kind of relationship with the people around us, whether we like it or not.

From toddlers to your childhood days, puberty stage, adolescent, young professional years and up to your adult days, haven’t you taught about collaborating – a collaboration that could be equal to forced cooperation just to achieve a certain goal?

Some says that “working in a group is much better than working alone.”

Some says that “two heads are better than one.”

Those sayings or usual quotation could easily be derived from people who are more social and have an outgoing kind of personality which is commonly known as people who are extrovert.

I would like to take into more consideration to those people who are being forced to collaborate in different situations in their lives, specially in work place. I am pointing out to those people who are more productive and efficient when they are alone, commonly known as the people who are introvert.

But having said the two sides, whether you are extrovert or introvert and even an ambivert – which is the combination of the two, each of us cannot deny the fact that there has been some situations, cases and scenarios wherein the need to collaborate and be in collaboration is a must, just to achieve a certain goal – your certain goal, whether for your own good or not. But because it is necessary, you are oblige to do so.

These things can cause you trouble, worry and regrets which can lead to your unhappiness – which is not healthy for yourself and for your life and being.

When things like these do happen, the only advice I can give is that, never ever disregard your true self. Yes, you are being forced to collaborate, as of the moment, for a certain good. But never ever forget who you really are – what you wanted to do and who you wanted to be.

If you feel stuck, do not tolerate. Life is consists of many unexpected things, which may guarantee good to you or not, and with that being said, if you feel toxic about your work, career or whatsoever in a collaboration – leave. Walk away. Go to your happiness.

Your happiness is what matters most. Breathe and enjoy your life. Do not let yourself be polluted by many toxic things or even people all around you. Live your life without having regrets. Live boundless. Do not ever force yourself into something or to someone which or who cannot give you the fire which can light up your whole being.

Collaboration is good, as long as you are happy where you are and what you are doing, with the people around you.

But let yourself not be forced into collaboration wherein your happiness is nowhere to be found and seen.

    Great post. My kids hated team work at school because often they were paired with the lazy kids, or less bright and ultimately ended up doing all the work and having to share the mark! 😃🐻

      Thank you so much that you liked my post. 😊 Your kids could really hate that kind of set-up. Personally, I must say, I always experience the same thing. It’s really a tough and tiring kind of thing. But that’s great to know that your kids are doing well. Have a great day Mum! God bless. 😊
