As a woman in business, often times voicing your opinion leads others to accuse you of being aggressive. But if you can't step up without being inaccurately judged, how do you inspire and lead? Ultimately, is being "half a bitch" not half bad to succeed in an increasingly competitive world and workplace?
It suddenly all made sense. Said woman really had no personal affront with me, she just suffered from Resting Bitch Face (RBF.) She couldn't help it. That was how her face looked in its resting position. A collage of her recent Facebook profile pictures flashed through my mind's eye, and I recalled how in each one she was sporting that RBF.
I knew there were some things about my personality that needed work. My goals have always been clear cut and straight ahead of me. To write, to make my own money and to make myself happy. Though, the way I was currently experiencing my personal life did not entail exactly all of the above. To put it shortly, I wasn't getting what I wanted.
I see through people pretty good and had considered that a secret known only by my ex-husband and maybe a few old boyfriends. I've learned to cooperate with my sixth sense. I use it as a tool of detection; a human tuning fork, if you will. I have never thought of myself as a conjurer though, as the man's tone suggested.
