We are quite certain that people need to learn a lot of lessons in their life the hard way in order to apply it. We also know that this is not easy, but it is the path needed for one to walk on and realize the things they should. The list below is dedicated to the things people shared related to their hard work and effort. It seems that being nice, giving your best, and working hard are most often not appreciated. You can easily end up being exploited, and you deserve better. This is why the list is so spot on – it may serve as an inspiration to those who need to realize all of it.
1. The years
This is one of the posts that make you feel like you have never been at a better place or in a better time because it shows that you are not too late for whatever. We believe that people need to do what they want regardless of their age. This is the way to go.
2. The raise
Here is a person who realized that being a hard worker without being compensated for your effort is a huge no-no and things would be different if you step up your game and demand what you deserve. As you can see, the person was happy to realize this at 18.
3. The 4th grade
There are moments when rules are meant to not be followed as they should, in order for you to act in your best interest. As you can see, this person was lucky enough to learn a few valuable lessons at a very early age. Good for her, we guess.
4. The kid
Now, this is the kind of thing that we wish we never had to comment on, but it is clear that such an injustice is something that should not be left neglected. It seems that this is the kind of unfairness related to people’s labor that we really don’t like, to say the least.
5. The laziness
Well, here is one way to deal with the fact that many employees are underappreciated and their labor is not accounted for. Making your own business or some kind of standalone gig is the way to have some independence, but it is not a route many people would follow.
6. The teenager
Here is one very clear and correct realization that people everywhere should read, understand, and remember for their own good. We like how this person was able to deliver this fact in an easy way, so others would be easily able to grasp it.
7. The hope
Now, this is a post that we cannot call surprising because we know most people think the same way, and they expect the same thing, although they secretly know it will never happen. As we know from our personal experience, doing the hard work does not mean you will get the big money.
8. The job
Here is another reason why you should reconsider giving your best on your day job. Others are likely never going to do that, and you will end up doing what they were supposed to in the end. This is not what you should get in return, but you likely will.
9. The boss
This is yet another tweet that reveals nothing but the truth: the minute you show you have what it takes to do your job the way you should, you will be forced to do more of the same. The payment you receive would likely stay the same. This is what’s wrong with being a hard worker.
10. The age
People who are entirely focused on their job are bound to end up just like this tweet describes. It seems that more and more people are slowly beginning to realize this, but most individuals never understand this until it is too late.
11. The evening
There are moments like this one when people realize they are wasting their time trying to make ends meet. It seems that working for someone who does not pay you enough is always a bad decision and you need to walk away if you have the chance.
12. The reality
There are people who think in a slightly different way – they are not all about getting the payment they deserve but prefer to have the kind of environment that suits them. Of course, it is never only about the money, and we know that.
13. The best thing
It appears that there is another major downside to not being paid enough – the time you spend trying to prove you work hard and you have what it takes to be a good employee. In this case, a person came to this realization. Good for him.
14. The gallery
Here is one of the best things a person could realize. Some individuals think they have an equal start with others, but this is simply not so. We guess that realizing this always saves a lot of time and effort that would have been wasted otherwise.
15. The hard work
Sometimes, people realize the things they should or should not do, but they refuse or are unable to change. It is true that a life lesson is usually paid dearly for, but some folks still choose to remain the way they have always been.
16. The effect
Wow, this is something we have never heard of before, but it seems that it is nothing but the truth. We like the fact that people have actually taken the time to research and analyze this problem, and we like how they named it, too.
17. The reward
There is no point in arguing with the obvious: hard-working professionals rarely get appreciated to the point they get adequate payment and other benefits. In most cases, people work hard and sacrifice their health for mediocre pay.
18. The raise
It seems that some people need to swallow the toughest and biggest pill of them all in order to realize the harsh truth. This person had to accept this raise with dignity because there was nothing left for them to do.
19. The counter
We get that people who do equal work need to receive equal pay. Still. the time spent at a company should be considered as well, because people contribute a lot over time. In this case, one person was not rewarded for the hard work as they should have.
20. The place
Now, this is something that we found hard to believe and you can see why we were amazed by the tweet above. How could someone do this after having the results they needed to make the rating? This is an awful thing to do to a kid, and we don’t like it at all.
21. The colleague
Wow, this is how some people can react to the kind of mischief we would never tolerate. As you can see, someone’s hard work was literally stolen, and we cannot stand such situations. This person still decided to lay low and put up with it for years with the same kind of thing.
22. The decade
Well, this is how sometimes things happen in life. This is not the kind of thing that most people could relate to, but it is probably a lot similar. We guess that betrayal is betrayal in all kinds of scenarios. We hope this person is doing better now.
23. The newspaper
Well, there you have it: the kind of scenario that many people would recognize themselves in. We understand that some people are never going to admit it, but they are used for decades and their work is never appreciated. This is how things happen in many cases.
24. The contract
Well, this is yet another situation that speaks for itself, and we understand things can get better only if an individual is willing to do what is right and ditch the field where they are not appreciated.
25. The Final Tweet
In this last tweet there is an advice from our author that we all agree on. If you are good at something, never do it for free.
