I am consistently amazed at the behaviour of people. For a long time, I thought it was just human nature for people to want to see the negative in one another. To tear one another down out of jealousy, envy or just plain competition.
Throughout the years though, I have been pleasantly proven wrong by the people who see the potential of working together, cheering one another on, and generally looking out for the good of others.
I guess you need to choose what kind of giver you want to be. One that tears down someone who might be working hard and trying or one that can be used to build another up.
in the end it is up to you. It is also up to you who you want to surround yourself with as you will always learn from both sides of this and there is value in both.
Food for thought…
