Have U ever enocountered anyone whose reaction can only be Either
YES or NO.
Another way to put this in terms of a Scaling system in response to
any matters,situations,relationships, working conflicts...
Either 0 or 10 in the sacle of 10.
They will be described as 'Exterme characters', 'Non Flexible',
'Ruin everyone's fun'.
Sometimes those above categorised people do get on people's nerve Big time!
But the fact is....remember how we all used to have those qualities in us.
We insists/persist in something/someone....or we used to hanging on
Not anymore...for some lost cos it requires too much strength and it gets tiring...
at times boring....lonely....then we.........let it slip....
we compromise...we convinced ourslevs it's not bad afterall....in fact...
it's the way to go!! got some many things achieved..
We celebarte with the rest...no more 0, 10, become more n more popular...
Mr n Mrs Nice Guy....anything in between 2 , 5 7 8....so much more room.
From minority turn majority.
