I got a slight talking to at work today by my boss about the fact that I’m too Nice. I don’t want to glorify myself – I don’t think it’s so much that I’m too NICE – more like I’m terrified of not being nice. Being nice is more like fear.
Either way, I’m brainstorming ways to be less Nice – or more brave. More ‘ I don’t take no crap from nobody!’ and ‘Grrrr!!!’ and ‘ I WANTED BALSAMIC ON THE SIDE, YOU WORTHLESS INDIVIDUAL!!’ and ‘RESPECT MY AUTHORITY!’ or however it is you brave people do it. I have a few ideas in terms of how to better myself in this regard – feel free to add your own suggestions.
– shave my head
– more eye contact
– stop making cookies for people when I hurt their feelings
– allow myself to be mad, and not be afraid of this
– make people cry
– not take no crap from nobody
– stop making excuses for people
– stop apologizing
– carry a gun
– face tattoo?
