Someone treated me, in my opinion, extremely unfairly last night. Here’s what I learned from the situation:
- Staying in a toxic situation is never worth it. Leave as soon as you realize the situation isn’t serving you. You’re not going to get out of it what you think you will.
- I’m going to be me whether people like it or not. My grandmother raised me to stand up for what I believe in, even if I have to stand alone, and that’s what I’m going to do. I’m never gonna hold my tongue to appease someone again unless I’m talking to the person who signs my check or someone who could keep me from getting a check.
- Most people aren’t worth your time. Be careful who you give yours too. You can’t get it back.
- Some people can have everything, money, a nice house, a great partner, beautiful children, and still be miserable enough to piss on your parade. Avoid these people like the plague. They will ALWAYS find a way to screw you. They think it’ll make them feel better. It won’t.
- Many people have ZERO desire to be self-aware. This is unlikely to change.
- Don’t let what happens to you or how someone treats you dictate your response. Let your morals/values do that.
This may be a growing list.
