It's probably my fault.
Certainly, I've entangled myself quite a lot in what I'm saying. The message and messenger are one?
But, they should not be. Who am I? We could discuss it. It's kind of interesting, to me at least. But who I am is much less important than what I'm saying -
I'm trying to lay it out. True. Sincere. Unfiltered.
Stop and reflect.
How often is there one person in your office that does all the work, and gets none of the credit?
Why aren't you speaking up for them?
How often is there some stupid paperwork that's ruining everyone's week and accomplishes nothing?
Why don't you go to the division issuing it and tell them honestly that it screws up everyone's day?
Why don't speak you speak up and say that "sensitivity training" with 1970's-era videos are ridiculous and accomplish nothing? Why do you just sit and let your brain melt when you could actually be doing something real out in the world?
Why don't you tell your bank that if they ever recommend such a shitty product again for a commission, you're going to post flyers all over the front of the bank that they're crooks inside?
Why don't you tell the restaurant that their food is great, but their service sucks, and you'd really like them to do better?
What would happen if people started getting more honest and sincere?
I'm getting a mix of extreme praise and extreme criticism. That's fine. But I'm just the messenger.
We could all do better. Why do you keep suffering stupidly? Quietly? For "diplomacy"? For "tact"? Because it's "not your place"?
Fine! You could suffer yourself. It's your life.
Why don't you stand up for other people who are getting a raw deal and won't stand up for themselves?
