I was raised in a world where I was taught to treat others with respect, to play nice, and make friends. I was always scared to say or do something that may have upset someone. I was often scared to reveal my true intentions as to not make people upset, which ended up making me mad because I would never get my way, as I put other peoples desires ahead of mine.
So when I heard the quote “If you are pissing people off, you know you are doing something right”, I was confused, as it contradicted everything I knew. How could this possibly be true. To confirm my initial beliefs, I looked to people in my life and in history who accomplished great things without pissing people off.
