Managing assholes, step one

I saw this quote by William Gibson:

“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes”

If you are then step 2 is to consider the question:

‘Why are you there?’ … what benefit are you getting from being in this situation?

Step 3:

‘What if you left?’ … imagine the consequence of leaving this situation with these assholes and notice any fears.

Step 4:

Find the courage to face into these fears and move towards and through them

Step 5:

Look again at the people surrounding you.

One Response to Managing assholes, step one

    It easy to say avoid assholes.But there are so many situations, where you can not aviod such people.Is it not also your own personal perception of who has this label? My late Mother was Bi-Polar and i had one label attached, with personality Disorder, with paranoid traits.I totally reject the label, as this is used, when they don’t know what is wrong? I have recently had to start taking blood presure tablets.Which are making me so down and try to tell GP.There must be a correlation, between the psychological health and the physical symptoms? I have spent years going round and around.The stigma i attach to myself is heartbreaking.In my experience.It is the people in Psycharity which are at question.
