“Those who want to beat a dog will always find a stick.”
~ based on a Dutch saying
No matter how careful you are in what you say.
No matter how safe you play.
No matter how much you try to please.
No matter how hard you try to use the right words.
No matter how much you anticipate any potential need.
Those who want to criticize you will find something to direct their harsh comments at.
Those who want to blame you will find something to point their finger at.
Those who want to gossip about you will find something to build their story on.
Trying to prevent the gossip from happening is as futile as mopping with the tap wide open.
You’ll lose a lot of energy.
And the water keeps pouring.
Don’t care about what they’ll do.
Care about what you do.
Make sure it is in line with who you are.
Make sure it is in line with your values.
Make sure it is in line with who you want to be.
And then all the gossiping becomes futile.
