Look, there are millions of us out here trying to scratch out some space for ourselves. Trying to make a little hustle into a profession. Trying to earn that gaup, dollars, pounds, notes y’ know – whatever you want to call it. And, then.
And then there are the people who don’t have a clue about what you are doing. They say things, and they mean them lighthearted, or maybe it’s just so off the cuff it doesn’t even have a meaning to them. It gets you mad. You stay mad, and that shit messes up your next week.
Just gimme a minute, sometimes in life, it is them and not you. The little digs, the strange feelings, if you get ‘anxiety’ or feel uptight just thinking about being around them, it is going to affect your business. You need to zap that in the butt right now.
It’s not you; it’s them. Cast out the toxic people in your life, and go about your business. Else it will just eat you up.
Your personal life and business life are going to overlap sometimes, but you need to protect yourself in both. Your life is too short and your business too valuable to waste hours thinking about what some fool said to you.
Begone foul beast – be gone.
