Of course i know that if you act in nimrata and do sewa in guru ghar its very blissful no doubts.

I tried being like that in other places such as workplace. (But i dont get payed, i just volunteer) . In the beginning I was so engrossed in bani and guru shabad that i didn't notice any negativity. But upon certain incidences i feel like they treat me less and unnecessarily give me slave like treatment.

And now i am torn between how to react. Of course i kind of just want to say my mind

How should a guru sikh react if he/she is being treated unfairly. ?

I don’t know if you have seen this but it’s a great video on Nimrata
Guruka Singh explains Nimrata as an internal feeling coming from the awe of God, and does not have to do with how you behave with other people. Therefore I think It does not prevent you from doing what you need to do to stand up for yourself in your workplace. If you feel like you are being treated like a slave it’s important to say something. Just because you are volunteering does not mean you should be treated unfairly. Think about it what you would do if you had a friend being treated like that, as a Sikh you would stand up for them. Ok so now you decide how that discussion is going to go. I think it’s important to speak to the person in charge in a neutral setting where there isn’t going to be a big scene. Spend some time thinking about how to talk about this in a calm manner and communicate how you are feeling. Then it comes down to conflict resolution skills/communication skills and try to come up with a solution. Good luck!
