It’s been a tough week. Suddenly I was getting rejection from everywhere and, just when I was half way through processing one, another event would happen.
Being a seller and doer, it’s not entirely surprising when a bid gets rejected or gets negotiated to a disheartening level. But what I’m recovering from now is the fear monster. Some of us react in funny ways when it comes to fear. Maybe we feel we are in the right and someone else is absolutely wrong so we attack. This happened to me today – I was attacked. So I jumped in the shower after pilates, and washed the pain out of my pores.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it: Don’t let the fear monster turn you into a real monster. Think about how it may ripple when you throw stones at others. Maybe you feel justified and others support your side. Or you’re in denial that you are causing any real harm. Or you are beyond caring. A dose of empathy wouldn’t hurt!
Be kind. Be safe. Be appropriate. Now go.
