Limited visibility in every phase.
Sympathies are for self and people below you, not above you just because your visibility doesn’t extend till there.
As a child, your parent is wrong,
As a team member, your manager is wrong,
As a Manager your mgmt is wrong.
Sympathies by people go that way,
A parent, manager or management are required to hide their problems and play strong to keep the focus of the child,team member and company strong.
Only when you go to the other side of the table, you understand the true picture and sympathies him/ her but too late a realization as the person has moved away from that role in your life most of the times.
