Self Care - Timesaver #4 for Career Women
I can't help it, I have to call this Timesaver tip - Banish the Bitch.
It may not appear to be a Timesaver tip at first, but read on.
Have you ever been in a group and negativity erupts?
The worst cases I have seen are in Facebook groups where it can suddenly revert to the school yard back in elementary school.
If you would like to save time, walk out.
And not just time, heightened blood pressure,
And that's what I mean by 'Banish the Bitch'.
There's a part of you that wants to put your two cents worth in but at what cost? You are then contributing to fueling the fire, cause no matter what you say the pack is rabid. The vibe in the room becomes similar to chickens who suddenly turn on one of their own and peck it to death. Disgusting, albeit the law of nature, survival of the fittest, in the animal kingdom. But we are human and sadly we are capable of wasting so much time on negative interactions and relationships.
The thing is, you need to make a strong decision to banish the bitch. Not someone else, that part of you who can sometimes get sucked in to the dramas of other peoples' lives. Believe it or not, this is an act of self care. You are choosing to banish negativity, which means you will attract more positivity into your life and that is taking care of yourself.
Prince Charles once said something that has stuck with me my whole life: "Human nature is something we must strive to rise above".
Be the woman in your workplace and your personal life that has the reputation of being 'above' pettiness, it will gain you immeasurable respect.
Hope you have a wonderful and positive week.
