I love helping people, and I love getting appreciation as much as the next person. But sometimes people get their knickers in a twist and just blah over you. It’s all over Facebook and the internet - opinions.
And I don’t really need more opinions. I haven’t got enough time, seriously. I have a few people who are super clear who I run things past when I need to check, and that is it.
I know I’m not going to make all the people happy all the time. And in fact, I may just annoy some. Hopefully I will annoy some of you regularly. Even make you a little bit angry.
You see if I’m not, then I’m not doing my job properly.
Every time I’ve gotten angry with something someone said to me - it was all because I realised they were right and I was I compromising. Sitting too comfortably.
Their words gave me a kick up the bum right at the perfect time, and the emotional response was all part of that.
It got me where I was keeping something safe and personal and not prepared to see clearly.
The reaction was always a “screw you, it is all someone else’s fault - I don’t need to change”; always straight from the ego.
So if something I say makes you angry, makes you annoyed, gives you some kind of emotion… Excellent. See what there is for you in that. See why.
There is all the growth in the world for you, taking responsibility for your own reactions, seeing your part in any struggle.
And that’s the people I want to talk to, that’s why you’re here.
If you don't want to be provoked, to look and see, just go somewhere else. Find an opinion that matches yours.
I’m not interested in doing battle, and that’s why I don’t do blog comments.
Life is too short to worry about other people’s opinions. Not to be arrogant, but just know that sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do without worrying what everyone thinks.
Take it easy, and have a fine day.
