There are perfect days, when the sun is shining, birds are singing, and babies giggle in joy at the site of you. Then, there are those dark days When Things Don’t Go Your Way. You know, the ones where you lose your keys, drop your phone in the toilet, and the dog uses the remote as a chew toy. We all have these hiccups in our life. What happens when you’ve been planning for something, getting your life on track in a certain direction and what you’ve been working hard for slips out of your grasp? A job you’ve been going to school for changes it’s rules on what their company needs to hire for that position. Early retirement is a no-go after your nest egg disappears thanks to bad investments. You, or the party you side with, lose an election. What happens then?
There are annoying people everywhere in the world and what are you supposed to do when one crosses you while crossing your path? You’ve got it together. You’re kind to people. Not much gets under your skin. But, every once in awhile, somebody just pushes your button. Grabbing you by the collar they take you off your high and drag you down to their low. What do you do then? When, through no fault of your own, you’re suddenly angry and ready to retaliate. What can you do…When People Piss You Off!?
What’s up with millennials today!? Or, so many of us for that matter! Ever feel like they wear their the-world-owes-me attitude like a badge of honor? They work hard (sometimes), putting in a good two-hour’s effort, then proclaim loudly how unfair it all is and quit. Sound familiar to you? How about from you? Where did all this Entitlement come from in the first place… and how close to home does it hit? Were we so coddled as children we have a hard time coping with the slightest amount of pushback from the job? People around us? The Universe!? Have we become such babies or is this the natural way of things in the 21st Century?
