Motivation: 18 for 18 – Imperfections

I work in customer service, so I deal with people every day.

There are days where I have some lovely customers and we have a good chat.  Then there are days where customers are so rude, that you just wish that you could just shove it up their hoo-ha, but have to be nice to them anyway.

I know not everyone is going to like me, and that’s ok.  That’s part of life.

Earlier this year I got a complaint where I was told I was ‘rude and abrupt’. It really threw me and took me a few days to get out of the mental funk, that this particular event put me in.

I had a day of ugly tears and was pretty much a hermit, for a few days.  I just didn’t want to talk to anyone, let alone face the world.

Some of my personality traits stem from family habits.  They are learned behaviours.  I can unlearn them but it will take time to undo these bad habits and create new ones.

So every day I strive to be the best version of me, imperfections and all because, at the end of the day, no one is perfect.  We are all imperfect, so embrace those imperfections.
