Soap Box Moment: As I grow older, when it comes to my friendships and professional relationships, I am finding out that I am actually placing more emphasis on “Trust”. I am not really sure why. Maybe I am becoming less tolerant of things that negatively affect mine and my families personal space. (This coming from the guy who quotes Scar Face all the time “Who do I trust? Me that’s who?” )
How many of you have heard this gem of a statement…”Don’t take it personally”. Well, it is kind of personal if I can’t “Trust” you anymore. Right? Let me give you an obvious example of what I am talking about. If we are on the same team and you are not going to block for me and if I’m not willing to block for you as a result. It’s kind of personal, because getting tackled hurts! So, as I step down from my Soap Box, I want everyone to know that my lack of concern for those who I can’t trust anymore…”Is Not Personal”!
