Grumpy is back
Hi WA peeps
I haven't managed to get online for a week. And I'm missing you all.
However was feeling guilty about not paying it forward...so I logged on and tried to help as many people as I could in 20 mins available.
Someone had asked a question. He hadn't had an answer in 3 days so I thought I'd help out. Especially because I knew the answer and could send him specific training on the subject (not done by me...but another fabulous WA member)
I thought I was helping this guy...but should have read his initial question ...as it was RUDE. Basically said don't reply unless you know the answer and don't answer unless you're specific. I actually saw his rudeness as a cry for help ...and I know that feeling...being so desperate for help that sometime you do and say things not normally in your nature.
So I replied. Told him exactly what to do to solve the issue and sent him some WA training which showed him step by step how to do exactly what he wanted.
Today I got a reply. It was even ruder. Basically he asked me why I bothered to respond as I hadn't answered his question and he still didn't know what to do. He said I was not specific and he asked for specific.
I admit to responding bluntly....I asked him if he had even bothered to view the training I sent to him *he hadn't otherwise he'd have solved his problem*
So....I was hugely annoyed. I helped this guy. I spent time resolving his issue I sent him very very specific training. I could have spent the 20 mins I had helping others and answering other questions. But I helped him.
this is learning to me
Life we know is a mystery
We connect with others
Some connections are positive
Others are not
BEEN THERE DONE THAT
Why did I get upset. Should have ignored.
SO MY LOVELIES...
My message is....we will meet all types. We will offer our love and friendship and guidance and support ....and sometimes it won't be wanted.
So don't stress (like I did)...just move on to the other 99% of WA members who are brilliant and give more than they receive. Occasionally you'll come across life's energy vampires...those that suck and demand your time and blame you when they fail. Just remember Every time you help or support the majority of decent folk they will appreciate it And pay it forward
Just remember if you get knocked KNOW that it's not your issue. It's the knocker who has a problem. Do not let anyone impact on your esteem. You are brilliant and successful and the assistance you give others is awesome in everyway.
Now go succeed and wave at your vampires on the way past....
