Favoritism

I’m trying to figure out favoritism in my mind at the moment. What it is and what makes some people more likely to show it towards others.

Fa*vor*it*ism noun The practice of giving unfair treatment to one person or group at the expense of another.

Please. Explain to me. How can a person get away with it? Let’s say it’s a boss. Who never seems to care about the concerns everyone has expressed about a certain coworker? What in the HECK is being held over their head if anything at all?

Most importantly…what can the average person do to fight it? Nothing? Just do what I did and quit because I was frustrated? But what about the people who are left behind in my wake?

I’m feeling so guilty. For leaving people behind. People that are frustrated too and have no choice but to stay. Some who will miss me more than I ever realized. I can’t believe that I’ve only been there 5 months. I feel like its been for so much longer….
