This following statement is mine, but has been told many ways by many people, here it goes. My life like so many of yours has been like a roller coaster, most of our actions or reactions are a direct result of others actions or reactions to our actions or reactions....whew do you all understand that much, cause I'm not sure I did, anyway.
My point is a lot of us blame others for things that happen in our lives although we are the only one to truly blame. Without boring you all and going into many details I have lived a life of a YoYo, up and down. As of today I am in a up mode and the future looks bright. I work my butt off at a job a really like which actually involves working at 3 different businesses and dealing with the dreaded public, again I love that.
There are those who are nice and there are those who are not. But for the most part I can deal with any type without a problem. Most people spend less than a few minutes in my life and I think for the most part I, like many others should be able to deal with that. If you can't you shouldn't have a job that requires dealing with the public in the public, it's really that simple. Part of my job is dealing with people who drink, and many have too much to drink meaning that multiplies the dreaded YoYo even more.
Again I can deal with that, this is my choice to deal with those types in this type of job, plain and simple. I don't rush home from my job to vent or cry on Facebook. I get paid on Fridays and I am grateful to be part of the Machine again, and again this is all my choice. At my age working has become harder and my old broken bones and body protest everyday, but like so many others I do what I have to, to have a somewhat good/comfortable life. It could be better, yes, but it also could be a lot worse.
There is many things I am grateful now for, and having a job no matter the pay or hours or title is one of them. Most should look in the mirror and know there are many others who have it much worse. Be grateful for what you have and look deep in your soul, most of what has been given to you, or not given to you was of your/our/mine own doing period, don't blame others. Rock on and become part of the solution not the problem.
