"By human nature we are judgemental creatures. That’s how we decipher what is right from wrong in order for us to make informed decisions. Whether we choose to voice that judgement is what makes us appear "bad". Its best to keep judgements to yourself."
I had an epiphany yesterday. I came to realise that I have traits of an arrogant asshole. While my father has made this proclamation many times, I obviously did not consider his opinion. I realised though that my frank nature is not only expressed to people who I have known for years, but has began to include people that I have now met.
What I fail to realise is that some people are more sensitive than others and sometimes when making a joke people can become severely offended. In my head I’m confident enough to be unswayed by the ole talk and the demeaning things that people say about me. I can cope. I went thorough several years of secondary school ridicule and I can handle my own.
I recently joined a new community of people and for the irony if it, I will pass judgement and say all these people are simply too sensitive. Yesterday I spent my day trying to apologise to people. No one accepted my apology, but either refused it or wanted to know what on earth I was apologising for.
So apparently I have a few things to sort out and I am going to make a concerted effort to be nice. My father said that ever since I started working my personality has changed. However working on the backbone of the communications unit of the Government of Trinidad and Tobago you are privy to information that is sometimes difficult to swallow. For the sake of the sanity of our beautiful nation, I work hard. It is no excuse though for such behavior because I was never brought up that way.
I am looking forward to an upcoming mini vacation. Surely it will do me well. Hope everyone enjoys today and make the best of the weekend :D
