Another crazy week. Moving is a major ordeal. I’m really trying hard not to get stressed out, but when things don’t go as planned, well let’s just say I’m not following the proper procedure. And being stressed out is making me overly sensitive to other things going on in my life. I need to get a grip.
I’ve learned from the past eleven or so years when social media was born and took off like crazy, be careful what you post. Been burned.
It happened again this week. All I can say, if someone asks for my advice or help, I need to say, I’m sorry, but I don’t have the time. Yes. I helped someone and got stabbed in the back.
Moving on. I called someone whom I haven’t spoken to in a year and found out their life has totally been turned upside down with a divorce. I was shocked. I thought they had a happy marriage and the person I spoke to agreed. It came out of the blue for them and is not taking it well at all.
Yes, I’ve read many books where this has happened so I know other people have experienced the same situation, but what I find fascinating, is how they deal with getting on with their lives. Do women handle it better than men? I don’t know. Even though I’m working (when time permits) on my Billionaire series, I want to pursue this topic.
I now remember situations from back in my Technical career working with a diverse group of people. Wives have left husbands and kids to pursue a relationship with her high school sweetheart. Or a relationship with a coworker. The husbands were devastated and on top of it, lost their jobs. One man committed suicide.
Yet, another coworker and her husband had two children. Years later, she found out her husband was gay and left her for another man. With the support of her family and faith, she has moved on. Happy and very successful.
But you see, I only hear one side of the story so I really can’t judge. But it makes me wonder.
