Although I say I write for myself, I try to write with an air of respect and professionalism, knowing that any of my friends, family, colleagues, co-workers, supervisors, employers, haters or enemies (yes I have those) can/may/will read my posts. I have had trolls attack me on my YouTube channel; I have been slandered by colleagues, and I have been bullied and harassed at various workplaces throughout my life. I still don’t understand why. What did I do to those people to make them turn on me? But, and I firmly believe this is 100% my mother’s influence on me, I have always taken the high road and not responded at their level. Meaning I try my best to live a life of integrity, choose the right path, and let karma take care of the rest. I can’t let negatives occupy my thoughts and actions as my energy is finite, and what I do have I prefer to spend on positive things during the 24 hours I have in each day.

|Not quite kettle-face, but the"thousand-yard stare" |
is something most gireviks can relate to.
