Accept it or not we all have many bosses. They boss us and we simply obey them and bitch about them, where they are simply doing what they want.
Well now you must know that I most certainly am not talking about office boss. I am talking about people, classmates, an annoying cousin, a friend who always impose decisions on you and you do it unwantedly.
Today someone asked me, ‘why do you boss around all the time?”
I answered, “coz I know that I am right.”
“What if you are wrong?”
“I will learn from my mistake and next time give a better instruction.”
“Why would someone listen to a person who gave wrong instruction in the first place.”
‘Well my friend! Coz I am the boss.’
“You are narcissistic, do you know that?” There was a hint of sarcasm and irritation in his voice.
“May be I am but still I am the boss.” Same calm reply.
“You are so self absorbed. How can you say that? Who made you the boss?” Now he was annoyed.
“You did. When you came to question me.”
“What? How?” Bewildering still annoyed tone.
“If I am not your boss then why are you here looking for my approval!? If I say I am the boss. You are angry and persuading me to say what you want to hear.”
“You are just twisting it.”
“Am I? Okay I am not your boss. End of discussion.”
“But you are…”
“Thank you! You just proved my point. See how You made me your boss.”
“But I don’t like you bossing me around.”
“Then don’t let me.”
“Don’t seek for others approval.”
“Again, don’t seek for approval.”
“Right right. So shall I go now?”
“You should. Or not. Do as you wish”
“It would be easier if you say.”
“And now we have second reason why you have made me your boss?”
” Dude, you need someone to tell you what to do. It takes pressure off of you and if you fail you can simply blaim your so called boss.”
And he left. Truth hurts but was I too straight with him. Which brings me to my third observation. Being straight forward, good or bad!!!!!????
Its matter of opinion. We’ll discuss about it some other day.
So I would like to end with leaving this thought here…..
Don’t complain that someone is bossing you. Stop seeking approvals. Be daring, take chances.Be your own boss. You might fail, but hey everyone fails at some point. Make fun of youself if you fail and move on.So … Chill man. Its alright.
