You know, nobody ever tells you in high school that those girls who were mean to you, will just turn into mean, spiteful women later. Do they? Attention the teenaged unpopular.. It just keeps on happenin in adulthood. Sorry. I know. It's a drag. Just go ahead and get bitter now.
I'm not one of those women who likes drama. Personally I would rather be alone, by myself for the rest of my life than deal with drama. I repell it. I loathe conflict. I see the appeal of moving into the mountains and becoming a hermit.
On a sidenote, do you think nuns have problems with snarkiness? Are there nun-fights instead of cat fights? I mean really with all that estrogen, even god probably can't keep them under control all the time.
Ok, back on task.
Anyways, I know alot of people. Real-life, co-workery, blog land.. you name it. I know alot of people, but only count maybe 10 of them as REAL TRUE FRIENDS. The others, well I like, but could easily be cut from the Rocksee Circle of Trust. (WHOLE OTHER BLOGPOST)
So with knowing alot of people, comes alot of drama.
I try to avoid it. That's ok, be right.. I'll walk away, even though I am right and you are just well, stupid. I think that's what some people call "the high road." Ususally that's all it takes to difuse a situation.
But there are some exceptions to this rule.
1. Disrespecting my family.
2. Disrespecting my 10 friends.
3. Disrespecting someone who can't stand up for themselves, or someone who is weaker than the disrespector.
4. Stealing from me.
5. When people say things about me/family/friends that are obviously not true.
5 simple rules. Pretty easy right? You break these rules, then sorry, I'm gonna have to say something. I just CANT not say something. Just isn't who I am.
Here it is.. 20 days before I go and of course, like clockwork. There is drama.
Yesterday, I found out that someone I deal with broke rules 1-3-4-5. I won't go into the details, but I DID say something. I realize that it's just money (and alot of money at that) and obviously if that person really wants the money that badly, they can have it. They must need it more than I do. I'm leaving soon and dont really care either way, but something needed to be said and it needed to be called to that person's attention.
I wasn't rude, but I did let them know that that changed my opinon about them and I wished them a nice life.
But what I dont understand why people have to be snarky as well. That really shows what level of class and respect you have for others and yourself.
If you have a dispute with someone, whatever happened to being adult about it and coming to
that person to solve it? I dont' like you, here's why.. what can we do about it??
Agreed, I have not always handled disputes in my life well, but in the last few years I've really tried to learn that classy is always the best way. Class will get you far in life. Snark only gets you a sad life in middle America.
