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.
