These Horns Were Made for Tooting
I pride myself on exiting situations quickly when it's not for me. Whether it's a relationship, a project or a friendship, if I think that I'm being treated unfairly I'll leave pretty quickly. Sometimes too quickly. For examples, countless times I've heard men say 'I can't commit' or 'I need space.' And I was more than happy to tell them deuces. I'm not mean about it. The approach may depend. I may fade away or "ghost" as the young ones call it these days. Or I may be brutally honest and just say it's time for me to go. Sometimes I wonder in those situations if I made the right decision. But screw that, I'm here to toot my own horn today. I'm awesome. And always right.
But seriously, one of the best gifts you can give yourself is living by the saying "go where you're celebrated, not where you're tolerated." I'm learning to do that pretty well.
