Receiving an Unfair Rebuke with Consideration for the Other

It often happens in the workplace  that you get reprimanded one-sidedly by your boss who never listens to your excuses. In the midst of the lingering recession, you are more likely to get reprimanded than before.

  • reprimand  叱責する
  • linger 長引く
  • recession 不況

Whenever I get reprimanded by my boss, I say to him “You’re right. You’re absolutely right,” agreeing with him, because I know he’s irritated in agony and I feel sorry for him. His angry over slight things proves that everything goes wrong with him 24 hours a day and he never lives a happy life with his family.

  • absolutely 絶対的に
  • agony 苦悶
  • slight わずかな

Such temperament can easily alienate your family and you’ll feel stressed all the more. Children won’t obey what parents say. You’d be distressed due to their disobedience sooner or later. Also, you’d fall ill by giving stress to your body. If I come across a man who gets angry unreasonably, I’m not affected by him at all, because I feel his life is going to  be miserable in the end.

  • temperament 性向
  • alienate 遠ざける
  • obey  従う
  • affect 影響を与える

Spiritual bodies of people full of gratitude become like a mirror. As time goes by, their mental attitudes come to be like that of God. That is, they’ll have a big heart. Mirrors reflect light. So, when you yell at a mirror, you’re yelled at.

  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • reflect 反射する
  • yell 怒鳴る

If you, who appease spirits related to you and remind yourself of gratitude in everyday life, are reprimanded unfairly by someone, all you have to do is listen to him/ her without resistance. If you’re to blame, just try to improve yourself. If he or she tells you off despite your effort, please feel sorry for him or her.

  • appease なだめる
  • related 関係した
  • resistence 抵抗
  • despite A Aにも関わらず

Not to change the subject, but company presidents and middle-level managers have had a hard time these days. They’re always concerned about funds, after all. Financing problems cannot get off their minds. Because of this stress, many managers may go off on their unreliable subordinates. Unlike salaried workers, presidents of small companies, once fail in business, have everything he has taken away by the bank.

  • subject 主題
  • president 社長
  • concerned 気がかりな
  • unreliable 頼りにならない
  • subordinate 部下
  • fail 失敗する

I sometimes hear from some company presidents that an average annual income of employees is larger than that of the president himself. In days of old, presidents would often make a lot of money, but their future is unknown. I feel that the valuation of companies should be how many employees they keep. I hope that, if companies that maintain employment go into the red, the government gives preferential treatment to them.

  • annual income 年収
  • in days of old 昔は
  • valuation  評価
  • go into the red 赤字になる
  • maintain 維持する
  • preferential 優遇の
