It's Not Personal, It's Business... For You, Not For Me

Had a few conversations with two of my sisters about how I've been feeling with certain people and their treatment of me and the sentence: "For them, it's not personal, it's just a business move. They're just thinking of their business or their career, they're not even considering how that move affects you, no matter what your relationship is to them," got thrown out there to me.

Rather than go into the selfishness, ignorance and total fuckery of that statement I decided to share the video that popped into my head when I heard it, because it's just so fucking true:

What did I learn? That whatever I do, whatever I say, it affects someone in some way, whether that was my intention or not. I also learned that if it did affect them negatively and that wasn't my intention, or if it was an action for or against someone else and it affected someone I loved or cared about in a negative way then it's up to me to apologize to them, not the other way around.

Anyway. Dammit, no matter how many times I tell myself that I'm going to stop being so "real" and "dark" on this blog, I just can't help it. I will always be real on here and if that means writing a post where I just say fuck everyone because I'm in a bad mood, then that's what I'm going to do.

Okay, maybe not, but you know, I'll always be myself and vent on here and work shit out or whatever you know?

Anyway. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Kicks you-tube 'The uploader has not made this video available in your country.' Thankfully IMDB had the quote - never actually watched the film so I had to look it up.
    Yeah, personal does at least suggest some passion, some emotion being involved.

  2. And what better place to be yourself than here--we come here not to see "happy" Vic or "contented" Vic--although that makes us happy--that our friend is doing well BUT we come dear man to hear how you are--all the ugly, the beautiful, the angst, the anger, the joy---we are here for it all--because we love and respect you--YOU--every aspect of you--for all those thinks make you the remarkable man you are!
