** Last spring saw the publication of the very first book in a six novella dystopian series I’ve been working on since early 2015. “Dark World : The Surface Girl” only $0.99 on kindle, or FREE if you’re a part of Kindle Unlimited! Check it out! The second installment is coming late fall 2016 and there is FREE “Dark World” bonus content right here on this blog!
For the sake of blogging and self-exploration and contemplation, I answer a question a day off of this list.
Today’s question : How do you deal with someone in a position of power who wants you to fail?
Hahahaha, I could write a book about this subject (and I have, in fact!) but putting that aside….
Fuck them. Yes, you read that right. Fuck. Them. I think it’s perfectly okay to view anyone that gets pleasure from your pain, failures and shortcomings as an absolute piece of shit who is not worthy of one single second of your time and energy.
For many years I had a VERY hard time dealing with people who derived pleasure from putting me down, and I felt like I couldn’t really move past it until they acknowledged my humanity and autonomy and it drove me out of my mind that they refused to own up to the shit-tastic things they did or even show any remorse whatsoever.
But what finally worked me was saying, 100%, FUCK THEM. Turning my back on them completely allowed karma to step in and say, “Oh we know people have put you through hell over the last handful of years, here, have ALL THESE AWESOME OPPORTUNITIES AND THINGS!” So in a way, be thankful when someone tries to bring you down because the universe will make it up to you if you just give it a chance 🙂
