If you’re successful, do you ever think back about all those people who gave you bad advice, who were condescending, who turned you down even though they were wrong?
I have to admit that I do at times. I understand that it’s probably petty and deserving of a therapeutic intervention.
But it does make me giddy.
You know, it is an interesting question — I had to think about it. I don’t know what it means (or if you care), but I believe I recall and think more often of those who gave me good advice (both practical and encouraging). I have a harder time recalling the bad advice and condescending people… they are there ‘filed’ in the back of my brain, but I have to make an effort retrieve those memories. Just thought I’d share.
Understood. But I like to laugh to myself at the idiots who were condescending and aloof.
