Advice: When Is A Person Giving Themselves Away?

Photo Credit: http://www.hbr.org

Hello Everyone!

I’m enjoying my own thing on this President’s Day holiday from home. I need to step out and take care of some other items today. Here in New York City, the temperature is in the 40’s/50’s Fahrenheit. Some rain is coming up on the weather menu for the upcoming work week. Try to stay dry while out on your work/school/home grind this week. I thank you kindly for checking out my son John’s “Call To Action Marketing” (hashtag #CTAMarketing) business! For this blog post, I’m offering some solicited Quora advice. Let me know if you appreciate or absolutely hate my advice? I have wide construction shoulders and can take on your feedback. 🙂 Thanks for being a willing participant with reading my verbal diarrhea. 😛 As I have stated before, I’m open to any of your topic suggestions if you offer them to me. This topic is on the subject of a person who is giving themselves away. I tried to look at the question from both sides of the coin. I can see a person who is perceived to be capable of so much more than their current lot in life. For a person on the outside of the equation, watching a person being taken advantage of or not living up to their full potential is absolutely frustrating as a spectator! However, the spectator may not be armed with all of the details of the picture. The other person may very well be content with their path and they may lack ambition to move further or make changes. This person may also heavily fear any form of major change. All of these reasons are perfectly valid for the person living their own life. After all, it is their own life to live. It must suck for the person in question to have to second guess their own potential in their own life. Getting feedback on your life from others can either be really helpful or harmful. No one wants to feel that they are lifestyle is short of another person’s expectations. Then again, constantly living up to the expectations of others can be exhausting. As a spectator, you can only offer your input and explain further when asked. Ultimately, the person is the one living their life and the master of their own domain. The old saying, “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make ’em drink” applies here. The goal is for all people to live their own lives. Catch yourself if you find yourself complaining about your life to your friends and/or family. Friends/family who hear you complain about your life will then think that you are not happy. If you are unhappy, review your circumstances and look to make changes. When you complain about your life yet don’t take any action, why even complain in the first place? Remember that sharing your unhappiness to others is an invite for input. If you don’t want outside input, write out your goals and regularly work on solving issues that make you unhappy. When I get into a bad space, I attempt to dig myself out, via writing out my goals. I write out 50 short and long term goals. Within a few weeks, cross them out, do the happy dance in my head, and then write in some more goals. That advice may help the introvert that is out there. Without further ado, go ahead and read my view on the topic. Check out the posed question and my own response down below:

POSED QUESTION:

“What do people mean when they say, “This person is giving themselves away”?”

By Sachin Dabodiya

MY RESPONSE:

“It is possible that Person A thinks very highly of Person B who is perceived as “giving themselves away”. Person A may not approve of Person B’s activities. Person A may think that Person B is short changing themselves, via not living up to their full potential. This potential could mean that Person B is not with the best man or woman that they could possibly be with in a relationship. Person B may be also be working for an employer who doesn’t pay or appreciate them enough. Person B may be also capable of driving the best cars, living in the best homes, or having the best social circle. Meanwhile, Person B may be absolutely content with their place in life. Person B may have already weighed the options on the career and relationship and doesn’t want to make the changes. Person B may fear change or has become not interested in climbing on the ladder of success. Person A believes that Person B is capable of much, much more yet is not armed with all of the facts. The only way to fully arm each side is to have an open communication; if that is even desired. Person A is either genuinely looking out for Person B or just being critical based up what they know about Person B. Person A may very well feel the need to project their lifestyle onto Person B. Meanwhile, Person A’s lifestyle doesn’t make Person B happy or fulfilled. At the end of the day, it is Person B’s choice on how to proceed in life. Person B doesn’t owe anyone an explanation as to their life choices. If you are Person A, you can say your peace and then back off. If you are Person B, you can analyze the source of the comment and the person making the comment. Trust your gut, make the choice, and keep it moving. I wish you much luck on this journey. #ConstructionTales”

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
