The last few months has entailed a lot of exploring for me. Here’s a few of the things I’ve learned:
Don’t date co-workers. Never. Ever. No matter how cute, irresistible, charming, wonderful, etc, etc, they are, it just isn’t a good idea. People tried to tell me this. I didn’t listen. Oh well, live and learn.
Nobody has it together. I’ve been seeking different people’s input and advice in recent months attempting to understand how others see things and also because I figured people with more experience would probably be further ahead than I am in their understanding of the world. Not so. The more people I talk to, the more I realize that no one really has any clue as to what they’re doing, why they’re doing it or what to do next. So, I’m in good company.
I don’t have to be nice to everyone, all the time. In line with one of my New Years intentions, I have been given many opportunities of late to express my anger, and also to be clear on what I want or don’t want in given situations. Sometimes, just saying no is sufficient. I don’t owe people explanations. Neither do I owe people multiple chances to be part of my life. Some people don’t deserve second chances. And I reserve the right to make that call.
I am woman. Hear me roar.
