While I’ve always subscribed to the mantra “that the customers are usually right”. To be belligerent just because you can, isn’t the way to handle any situation. And that such behavior usually lends itself to a much deeper problem. Listen I’m the last person in the world to judge anyone of the amount of rage and pettiness they may carry. Lord knows, I’ve burned enough bridges to start a forest fire. We all like to blame others for our poor attitudes. But when it comes down to it, who else can we blame but ourselves.
I know, I’m hearing the excuses coming through the screen. “But I was verbally abused as a kid” or “that stupid waiter didn’t get my order right”! Listen while some of our troubles were thrown at us without our permission. That still doesn’t give you the okay to be an asshole. I understand the world can make you crazy. Believe me I got the paperwork to prove it. But it’s also your responsibility to take care of yourself. And having a more Zen attitude is part of that care. Over the last eight years I’ve pulled myself from death’s door. I’ve lost 135lbs, I stopped having to take high blood pressure medication. My Type-2 diabetes is at pre-diabetic levels and my A Fib is all gone. My solution? Taking responsibility for my own actions, whether it's my fault or not.
