I find it interesting culture differences... professional differences... and personality differences.
I think it's fascinating that someone can do something one way and be genuine and hard working about it... but because of circumstances and expectations of how to react, they could be seen as something else.
What works for you culturally may not work for you or be acceptable by someone else.
What you think is honorable and respectable professionally may come across as completely rude and inconsiderate.
Even if you do stay true to yourself and try to be a respecting, nice, hard working and honorable person... you can offend someone.
Isn't that fascinating????
How to resolve...
I don't have the answer, but can only assume that communication is key.
And when that is not possible... understand that people may hate you for who they "think" you are... and in that hate, they are only disturbing their own peace.
How to make a difference...
Try not to take anything that anyone does personal... (courtesy of Ryron Gracie)
Also know that every moment with a human being is nothing but a small tiny film clip of a huge motion picture. Don't expect to understand the persons character from one incident or scene of it.
Good luck humans. Inspire someone today.
