I have Been on the Receiving End

When I first read the excerpt in the previous post, I had what might be called a Tango moment. It summed up so very much of what has/had happened to me.

There are three diverse instances, there are more. The first one being the experimental Toltec group into which I poured my heart and Soul, the second being getting the entrepreneurship gig going with Powerlase Ltd. and the third doing multiple team development courses.

In each case I was on the receiving end of much directed gossip and criticism. Many thought they could do better. In some cases, it was nasty…

In terms of the entrepreneurship gig, people initially thought that this was “dirty” and impure, and many imagined greed was my motive. I suspect that it impeded my promotion! A few years down the line they all had to justify just how entrepreneurial they were in order to get their dollar from government.

{I was doing that whole shebang as a means to fund a retreat centre….}

The so-called Toltec group was a real eye-opener. People were kidding themselves that they were spiritual warriors… it was more like a soap opera.

In the third case I was simply used as a means to tick a box on a grant application form.

It is so funny how “management” deems that everyone else needs “personal development courses” but do not imagine in their sociopathic entitlement that they are not only the cause of many of the problems, but they also completely and utterly lack any self-awareness. “If only the plebs would do what I want better the world would be fine and dandy”. It is all their fault. I am an omniscient angel. They need to get their shit together not me. They need training. I am perfected.

People are weird and not entirely pleasant…

Being a blotting paper is not easy.

It is hard to absorb all that negativity and then transmute it…

It is a shit job, but I guess somebody has to do it…

Hey-Ho…
