From my seat at the edge of Bloggerville, I honestly see nice folk, not difficult people. But in my life I have had occasion to know and work with difficult folk.
(Three’s again tonight!)
Some are boring, some are egotists , many are ‘know it all’s’ and some are over bearing personalities. Some like to get tooo close as they talk (is that invading one’s space?)
I think maybe I come across as a ‘know it all’. There are times I add my opinion because I think I should, and others I DO NOT voice my opinion. I think that problem of mine is mostly with family members.
I have never had a problem with someone pushing me in a sexual way. I think women have that problem more than men. Many of my gender think they are God’s gift to the world, but mostly to women.
Some folk feel they must share their opinion on every subject, as a matter of fact they insist on it..
In my situations, I have mostly tolerated it, ignored or avoided situations that put me close to someone I was not comfortable.
There were times I wish I could just ‘lower the boom’ or ‘Say WHAT IS ON MY MIND!”
Of course at times I might have been the one who was obnoxious to my shipmates, if so they also tolerated me.
We all have opinions, and there are times they MUST be expressed. I honestly try to be more thoughtful, I think age helps in that respect.
I seem to think most folk fall in the same category as I, that is, ignore and avoid. BUT there is always the co-worker or peer who “MUST SAY WHAT IS ON THEIR MINDS.” (Hundreds of times I have wished I could do the same.)
I am just rambling, thanks for coming this way. I do appreciate your time and comments.
Funny thing about difficult folk, we don’t know it.
I am going to make a concentrated effort to cut my entries down….
