TEe hee, nice title, right?
I have been pondering about getting along with people. This year, while meeting new people I have had a lot of first impressions. Not all were favorable. I tend to sum people up pretty darn well in a first meeting, but I have been grossly wrong a few times here.
But, I also really try and give people the benefit of the doubt, and not burn any bridges for a bit.
But, then there’s people you have to deal with and you have to learn how to get along.
And I’m just not sure that I’m all that great at it. I do it with patients, but that’s only for like 12 hours and I can stand in the bathroom and silently scream how much they bother me.
That doesn’t work for long term things.
So, what do you do when you can’t stand someone, but you have to deal with them long term? There’s no getting out of it, or just not being around them?
Am I shallow, should I just perfect myself and love everyone?
