Sorry- taken down
The idea to this layout came while reading one of my favorite columnists – Harald Martenstein – he always makes me laugh. He writes with pointed remarks and often brings simple lifestyle problems to the point. This week the column for DIE ZEIT was titled: Many are suffering from making it right for everyone (freely translated) – here is the German article
one of the paragraphs that made me laugh the most was:
…You have to force yourself to be unfriendly. This is true in all areas of life. Lot’s of people are suffering because they wish to make it right for everyone. That is just something deep inside of you. Maybe it is education. In my opinion this is an unknown widespread desease. Doctors usually diagnose it with “Burn-Out-Syndrom” “Depressive Mood” or “Gastritis”. In reality though this is just caused by wishing to make it right for everyone. ….
Of course that is not, what causes Burn-Out-Syndroms etc. – but it made me think of how tired I am to be always the people pleaser and make it right for everyone- you just can’t , right? Even if you just stay in bed and do nothing, you make someone upset. So this is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek layout…
And please, please….No worries- I won’t be unfriendly from now on…probably tomorrow again just trying to make it right for everyone as always – LOL
