Be Satisfied Already

It seems that some people are never satisfied. I come across these people all the time and I really can’t figure them out. It used to drive me crazy because I would bend over backwards trying to please these people and it seemed that whatever I did, it was never enough. I finally figured out though that it wasn’t about me, it was about them.

I can understand wanting things done right. I can understand giving someone some constructive criticism if it is warranted. I can even understand complaining on occasion. But I can’t understand people who constantly nit-pick, find fault, and try to tear you down.

To these people, I want to scream “Be satisfied already!”

I try my best. I think I do a pretty good job in most aspects of my life too. I’ll also be the first one to admit that I’m not perfect. But who is? You certainly aren’t. Do you ever think of that? Probably not. But my faults are as clear as day to you and it seems to me that you think it is your job to correct them. And some of them aren’t even faults either.

So if you come at me with a complaint and I explain myself logically and can explain why I do so-and-so, please listen, consider what I’ve said, and be satisfied already.

Is that too much to ask?

  1. Hi Anonymous,

    I don't know why so many people act like this. It grates on you, doesn't it? All I know is that I do my best and try not to worry about what they think. They won't be satisfied anyway. So why worry about it?

    Thanks for the comment.

  2. I'm working on not letting it bother me.
    It is difficult … especially when it's the boss.
