Rationalizing the Irrational

Rationalizing the Irrational. Is it even possible? Worth while? Stupid?

People pleasing, its sort of a stupid trait. Many of us have it. Why the need to please, or defend or rescue? And do our efforts to defend and please help? Usually not. As a matter of fact, my hope to protect has done harm. More than once. I get caught up and I realize that people are human, imperfect, have their own shit in their own lives, and rescuing them, defending them…  not my job. I guess I need to STFU, and worry about my own life, my own self and my own very largely imperfect life.

Primum non nocere = First do no harm

Absit inuiria verbis = Let injury by words be absent

Errare est humanus = To err is human

Trying to please all, is fruitless. Defending somebody other than myself, not my place.

So for today, I take a breath, reflect and attempt to do better tomorrow. Luckily every day is a new day, a chance to start again.

  1. You have to be able to see yourself in the mirror when the day is over. People lash out because they can’t accept their short comings. All you can do is accept it for what it is and move on. You always pull through.
