I once read an article about some chick who admitted to being a bully in school.
Whilst the bullying part certainly isn’t funny and anything to make fun about, the big irony of this chick admitting to being a bully and destroying someone else’s life is. And that is because this chick, let’s call her Susie, is in the news all the time, waving her finger at something, claiming her moral high ground.
During the lockdowns, a lot of people defied the national advice against travelling internationally. Instead of keeping her mouth shut, Susie called these people ‘irresponsible’ and said they ‘needed to think of us who actually are afraid of this virus’ (to my knowledge, she isn’t in any risk group).
And there’s the environmental cause, the climate changes, how people cannot eat meat, how everyone needs to stop being rude when talking to each other (!) and much more.
I really don’t need to go much more on about how Susie routinely is grossly contradicting herself.
As it so happens, this article was released the weekend before the big parliamentary elections, which means that anyone’s attention is at the politicians, not at Susie.
Which they should be.
Now, am I going to call Susie out?
Of course not. First off, I have no interest in being involved in any of Susie’s affairs and number two, I wouldn’t have gained anything.
But Susie’s background proves a point. Which is that reality always comes back to bite you in the arse. No matter how great or flagrant you are, if you have skeletons in the closet, at least let them all out. Don’t hold back.
And this attitude, being honest about yourself and being mentally aware that you too, have baggage (if you’re a certain age), is highly important if you want to become a successful man.
I talk about that a lot in my FREE ebook, which you can get here:
