Are you known as a jerk to your acquaintances? Our friends, of course, would never say that. Regardless whether they believe it to be true or not. Here’s my issue and what has been gnawing on me all this week. I work full-time at an RV Park during the winter outside of Phoenix, Arizona. This is my third year to work here. I’ve had absolutely no problem with anyone up to this season. I, of course, being fairly strong-willed (just a little, LOL) have taken exception to two particularly irritating individuals’ intrusions into how I and my husband manage the park. No one else seems to have a problem with us. I know that I am a grown woman and, therefore, need to “put my big girl panties on” and deal with it. However, it has gotten me more upset than I want to be.
While pondering this problem, strictly by chance, I came across an article that seemed to speak volumes about my problem. After reading this article no less than three times, I came to the conclusion that, Oh Dear!!! Perhaps I’d better re-examine my behavior as well and figure out how much of this I am causing or exacerbating by being, well, who I am. The article is very interesting. I am putting the link below because I think that most of us need to take a step back, particularly as we get older, and take a look at our behavior and our opinion of others. But, more importantly, take a look at how much we think of ourselves. Try to figure out if we are actually more of a jerk than we think we are.
You may find this article of some value or interest.

Nice post 🙂 I think it’s always good to check ourselves and consider the possibility that maybe we’re the jerk in the situation.
Yes it is. We sometimes are the problem.
Thanks for your reply. Sometimes we have to take a step back and look at ourselves.
If you do not want to be a jerk, be as kind to as many people as you can. When you limit your associations to only certain people, or only praise certain authors works, you can become limited in scope and biased. I do my best to support as many people as I can. I do not play favorites and find those who do limited and snobbish. Thanks for sharing and enjoy the day.
