Instead, I HOPED he would see how hard I worked and not cheat me that way. I goofed!
I Should have asked sooner why I saw ZERO results from all that money he borrowed from me.
3. I should have asked my former staff if she was enjoying her job because she seemed unfulfilled, less willing to go the extra mile and made repetitive mistakes. Instead, I HOPED she was okay and that she’d do better.
What I should have asked then was: “Forcefully moved in? Are you a child? Do you want to stick with her for the sake of the baby?”
This was years ago, the lady still lives with him, they have a baby together.
Instead, I stopped talking to her and now there’s bad energy anytime she’s within 6 feet.
What exactly is wrong with that?
Having gone through all of the above and then some, I decided I would no longer be ashamed to ask about things I wanted and needed to know.
Anyone who can’t answer my question(s) is uncomfortable about the answers and/or hiding something(s).
So, I step back! And, until I get clarification to what bothers me, I will not assume but I will also not move forward with that relationship/ business.
The real DANGER is in NOT asking questions. The purpose is to gain knowledge so as to make informed decisions.
If you’re reading this, those questions you’ve been afraid to ask, ask them today. Let no one -subtly- bully you into silence.
I promise you, ignorance is not bliss.
Your future self will thank you.
