You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. Or shall I say Mrs?
I’m a jerk.
People who know me well are probably a little confused after reading that.
But, really, I am! Capital J – E – R – K!
I cut this chick down all the stinkin’ time.
Get this, I tell her she’s ugly. I tell her nobody wants to hear her opinions. I even tell her she’s not good at anything.
Well, at least I used to.
Today I’m challenged with writing about a quality I don’t like in people. That quality would be one I recognize and am all too familiar with. It’s when people doubt themselves, their worth and they grossly underestimate their potential. That’s bull. It makes me kind of angry, in a fired-up-to-change-the-world kind of way.
A friend doesn’t accept a challenging position because she thinks it would be too much for her to handle or she isn’t sure if she’s the right person for the job. Another friend believes silly excuses that are holding her back from becoming the woman she dreams to be. I just want to shake them and shout “You can do this! You are worth it!”
But I don’t.
Maybe I should.
I will. I commit to supporting my friends and myself a whole lot more.
Have you ever been a meanie? To who, and do you regret it? Please share, in a nice way, below.
