The Recovering Pessimist

Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Growth in Disagreement

It’s very easy to find bobbleheads in life.  They’re usually close by, nodding their heads in constant agreement with your decisions. No matter what the decision is, heads nod in agreement.

“Should I wear this really tight shirt that emphasizes my bloated stomach?”

*Should I ride by his house and throw rocks at the windows?”

“Perhaps I should really go tell them where they can REALLY go.”

Bobbleheads don’t always have your best interest in mind. I don’t think they always intend for you to walk off the cliff. Perhaps they don’t want to hurt your feelings. That’s never a good thing. Just let me know that the idea sucks and present the idea that you had simmering while you listened to my train wreck of an idea.

Cut those bobbleheads. Embrace those who disagree with you. Seriously, befriend those who challenge you. Even though they challenge you, these people have a vision for you that is beyond what you see. They want what’s best for you. When I let started aligning myself with those who didn’t agree with my every move, I didn’t make the same stupid decisions.

I slowly became a better person.

That’s pretty awesome.
