Like who are you? Where is your Master’s? I had to just walk away from the situation because I genuinely like and care for this person but like GTFOHWTBS. I’m proud of myself because I didn’t go off on this person or curse them out. I just politely left the conversation altogether.
Yes, I really think so.
It’s really a shame because people could learn something from watching other people go after their goals. I hate when folks talk shit about what someone else is doing! Like it’s a pet peeve of mine. What is your purpose? Does that make you feel better if someone tries and fails at something? Will the sun shine a little brighter for you if they are unsuccessful?
We usually call these people haters but I think it’s something more than that. I think maybe something happened to them in their past. Perhaps at one time, they were trying to conquer something and failed. Instead of getting back up and trying again, they decided to wallow in their own grief and never recovered.
Or maybe they feel like if you’re successful in your endeavors that it means that they won’t be successful in theirs.
This situation just reminded of the old saying that everybody and their grandma used to say, “Misery Loves Company.”
And Yes Indeed it does.
Onward and Upward,
