Some people are ardent practitioners of the bullshit. You heard me. They don’t practice what they preach – they simply don’t walk the walk of their daily talk – the words that roll effortlessly of their tongues are no more than pearls of bull….shit.
We have all encountered them and so many of us just put up with it. We put up with working with or being friends with people who step on us for their own personal gain. For some reason we facilitate that. Why? Why should someone else get to walk around pooping on your head? We make excuses for them -”oh well they don’t really mean to….they have a good heart.”
If these kinds of people make your life tense, anxiety ridden and downright painful – why put up with it? Why should they be given the right to complicate your life? Isn’t life complicated enough?
Sometimes we cannot change people, so even if we were to shed light on a certain person’s difficult behavior and attempt reasoning with them, they may get defensive and just not understand, ever. The truth is we shouldn’t really aim to change these people but do what we can to improve the situation for ourselves. In other words, de-friend or attempt to change our work situation.
Don’t remain paralyzed in a situation under the pretense that it may improve. Be honest with yourself and be brave.
It’s no more bullshit time. And definitely No more Asshole time too….
