I mean, 99 people can LOVE you, and that ONE- that damn ONE person that doesn’t like you, you wind up obsessing over! RIDICULOUS.
I went to the Conclave, and hosted a beautiful dinner with Bob Lawrence. It should have been the highlight of my trip, but it was trumped by ONE person. I’m such an idiot sometimes. 🙂
The one person that didn’t like me, that fought with me on Face Book, and told me I was abusing FB ettiquette, way back when I was so new to FB that he may have been right? Not sure on that one, but his comments left a bad taste in my mouth, and obviously MINE did his! We had never talked again, in fact we STRONGLY avoided each other, and many others knew what was going on.
We were introduced at the Conclave, and having never met in person, he said to our common friend, “OH! Robin and I are old FB friends!” I chuckled, took him aside, and said, I hope we can let ‘bygones be bygones.’ His resonse is what turned me around and became the highlight of my trip! He said, “Robin, you have become one of the most entertaining FB friends I’ve got! You went from doing what I thought was the WRONG thing, to doing everything fun and right! I really enjoy reading what you have to write!”
I was stunned! I gained my ONE back! No more 99 out of 100!!! Now I have to find something new to obsess over. It’s hard work being me.
