I'm not talking politics hereas my personal political opinions matter to no one but myself. I'm just talking about another human
I along with the rest of the UK/World watched as Theresa May decided to step down as PM
I stopped seeing a job title and started to see a woman, watched her openly weep despite trying to remain 'strong' and regardless of my personal opinion, I do respect that she worked hard to achieve her position
Again I'm NOT going into politics here
The first thing I thought when watching her was what a courageous and strong individual! You have been doubted, publically ridiculed and mocked repeatedly and yet you stand there with your head high and say “I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love."
It's rather obvious you didn't want to leave this post more *advised*
What people are forgetting here, is behind the job description there is an person. Who like the rest of us has thoughts, opinions and ambitions.
From recently experiencing criticism/bullying I know how hard it is to stand back up, to face your critics head on
It takes a courageous person to go back and face the at times spiteful comments being made! Mainly behind your back
When everyone keeps telling you that 'you're rubbish' the personal and damaging insults There is only so much one can take until they have to consider the detrimental impact its having on ones mental health
They're not 'quitting' because the bullies have won, they've just prioritised themselves over the opinions of their bullies
But, regardless of peoples opinions on her position, how she's run this countryTheresa May is a person with thoughts, feelings regardless of her social status so just be kind, show compassion and empathy. It costs us nothing to show a little humanity
