Questions To Ask Yourself
you ever found yourself in a situation where
you heard yourself say, " I can't believe
they would do that?". Well, it happens,
often when we least expect it. Betrayal is a
fact of life and unfortunately, when so many
are driven by fear, it happens just as often
in the workplace.
it was a confidence shared, a project executed,
or a personal betrayal, the initial effects
are the same- denial and anger. Once you are able
to acknowledge these emotions, you can begin the
most important chapter of this "life lesson"-
what can I learn about MYSELF?
When we consider that every relationship we have
with others in some way reflects our beliefs about
ourselves, then even disappointments such as
these can make sense.
Here are a few key questions to ask yourself:
Am I too trusting?
Did I have a blind spot to this persons behavior?
Was I ignoring the "signs" that pointed to questionable trust?
Did I spend more time "fixing" or "fighting" the situation
than was needed?
Did I get a "gut feeling" at any time that I ignored!
When you choose to look at the situation with eyes
willing to see what you might have missed,
then the learning becomes easier. No one is perfect-
And you know what? That is really okay.
