The list goes on. The city can use your time to take care of your personal matters. It’s not that you have to do everything yourself, it’s that you have to do it yourself. However, you know what? It’s true. We are all responsible for our own decisions. You are responsible for your own actions. While we think our time is precious, we just don’t always get the answers.
I am not necessarily talking about your time, but about your choices as a person. Like, when you were in the grocery store buying something, you should have thought, “Why am I doing this?” I think that this is especially true for consumers who are in the market to buy something, but not sure what it is.
Some people don’t take responsibility for their choices. I believe this is an excuse, or simply a lack of self-awareness. Some people don’t realize they are making choices, or that their actions are impacting others. A person who doesn’t think about these things doesn’t realize its their actions that have created the effects they are seeing, its their choices or lack of awareness that are the problem.
A person who does not realize that his or her actions are impacting others, or that their choices are impacting others, is in a state of denial. Denial is when it’s just not a big deal when you do something. Denial is when it’s not so big that you can’t see its impact. A person who is in denial is not aware of the impact he or she is having on those around them.
Denial is a learned behavior, a learned behavior is not learned. That’s why we can’t just say, “Well, everyone knows that we should never deny anything.” It’s also why we can’t just say, “We can’t deny that. It’s a bad thing.” That just doesn’t cut it.
This is the key point. People who are in denial are not aware of the impact they are having. If you are in denial its because its not something that is causing you any harm. If you are on the receiving end of denial, its because you are not aware of the impact you are having. And that is a huge problem. Denial is a bad thing, because it lets you off the hook.
In the case of the movie I was writing about earlier, I was having a discussion with an agent about what to do about the movie and what to do to be in denial when it is over. His response was, “I couldnt care less, I’m glad I didn’t get into the way I wanted to take a couple of days off.” I replied, “What should I do?” He replied, “I’m not willing to do that.
This is called the “why did you choose to do that?” question. It has a big effect on the way that we respond to situations, and the actions we take. If I had my life to live over again, I would probably do the same thing. But I wouldn’t tell anyone that I’m doing it.
Everyone who goes to a reception job is in denial. You know what I mean? You feel like you are fine, but you know that you are not. If you go to a reception job, you don’t actually think you are going to get fired. You think you are just going to find out that it was a bad idea. And you are right.
So many people that go to receptions are looking for a job, and they are not being honest with themselves. They have a false sense of hope and confidence that they will be successful, but they dont actually believe it. So many things can go wrong once you get to a reception job.
