Sometimes, others can get negative at you in life.
People are unhappy.
Complaints are rolling in.
It seems like you can’t do right.
But you have to have a thick skin or as one colleague told me:
You need to be like Teflon and have it all just roll off you.
And this book title reminded me of this:
“The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck”
Yes, we do have to care about doing good in what we do.
It’s just that we shouldn’t “give a f*ck” when others are just wanting to tear us down and enjoying it.
Constructive feedback is good.
But destructive negativity at every turn is just hurtful.
It’s also a way for others to not take ownership.
We all need to do our part to make things better in this world.
Sure, no one does everything right and no one is perfect.
But everyone needs to try their best, and when others just want to beat on you…
That’s a completely appropriate time to not give a firetruck. 😉
