When the Interviewer bluntly tells you 'I HATE you'

THE INTERVIEWEE WHO HATED ME

6 years ago a guy looked at me face to face, and boldly told me; "I don't like you!" Why ? I said so close to tears...
But then I remember some lessons my former boss and mentor of blessed memory taught me...Mr.Harold Watson...May your gentle soul rest in peace. Amen.
I immediately fired a response, I asked him that day; "Thank you for the honest feedback, but those that you like, how has it made their life better? How does your liking people pay their bills or take a bank loan? Please sir, keep your like or dislike, I need God's like And that's what guarantees my future.
Sometimes ago I joined a CEO friend of mine in an interview Panel to recruit some new staff, it was a long session, as we returned from a coffee break to continue the hectic interview session, here was this same guy walked in with his grey jacket and CV coming for the interview.
Our eyes kissed by fluke, we immediately recognised eachother; "the world is indeed spherical", I soliloquized.
He felt very uncomfortable through out the interview, one could clearly see the volcanic eruption ongoing in his whole nervous system, he even mistook his date of birth for his last date of employment. It wasn't yet my turn to ask him questions so I allowed everyone to take their turns with him and deliberately opted to interview him last.
When it got to my turn, the first thing I said was, "I LIKE YOU so much, you look to me like a brilliant and intelligent person, but it seems you are not doing well now because something bothers you, true?"
"That's very correct !" He responded.
"Ok look at me straight in the eye, I was never offended that day, it is very normal that sometimes as humans you just don't like certain people, but I wasn't bothered either, because whether you liked me or not, it was inconsequential to my life and my success path - as you can see, fate has brought you to my lair" You hurt me deep that day ,but I quickly encouraged my self in the Lord. Controling my emotions was tough. Mr Harold Watson had said that every day is like we acting on stage. He said to me then...Princess..You are the star of the show...You take the licking and keep on ticking. You must never stop to tick. Give each day the best of you...You must dress up and show up. While dressing too...Take it like you might be meeting the President... Reach for the moon...and if you do not get there you will settle among the stars...So trust me you need your shine...Nothing...No one must take it from you...🙌
This part of me, some people do not understand. They miss interpret my personality. Thank God for His sufficient Grace. It can only have been his Great Grace....🙌😇🙏
I stood up and beckoned him to come and embrace me, everyone on the panel at this point were at sea - wondering if we had expeditiously recast an interview session to a Hollywood movie scene.
He hugged me so long and deeply that I felt it. Then I told him, "now get your confidence back Sir and answer the questions like a Pro Shark that you are, we all burst into laughter, everyone suddenly liked him and the room became livelier - the interview became more like a discussion, well to cut the long story short, he got the job!
Lessons:
1. Be careful how you treat people when they appear to be in their vulnerable state, your next level may be hanging in their balance; somewhere in the future.
2. If you dislike someone, it is not their fault, it is YOUR FAULT, work on yourself to find good in people and reinvent your Mind to see everyone as likeable. My daughter will most times look at me when we do our Girl Talks....she says she is yet to see someone I do not like...
The truth is I have too much love in my heart to see it any other way...Even for the people who have hurt me.
3. Don't spew hatred vocally just because it came into your heart, you may say it to someone who will keep it forever and use it against you when you find yourself in your own low moments and need them.
