Yep. I don’t get it. I used to think I had a clue. But the more I wander through this thing we call life … the more that I realize how clueless I really am. Especially about people. Last I checked, I fall in the category of people, but sometimes I wonder if I am the same as other people who call themselves people. Granted sometimes I don’t even understand myself, so I guess I am a person too.
I am currently listening to a webinar about how to promote my new “business” on FB, and it sounds like a different language to me. I mean it makes sense in a way, but on the other hand it seems to me that being a “person” these days has much more to do with image and nothing to do with actually being a person. I am NOT a “brand”; have no desire to be a “brand”, and don’t see the world that way. I would rather have ONE person who gets me for me, then 12,000 who are sucked in by the image I have created as me.
When did human relations become all about image? When did everything become a popularity contest instead of actual interaction? I just don’t get it. I will never be a “successful” business person because to me it is actually kind of demeaning to our so-called customers. We call them targets, or other words that basically have the same kind of meaning. They are not friends. They are not even acquaintances. They are something we aim for. I will never be able to think that way. I suspect my “business” will go nowhere. Because I simply don’t think right. I don’t get it anymore. If I ever actually did.
Ah well. Guess I’ll go back to being confused ole me. I am not built right for a world of consumers. Just gotta plug along as me and see what comes of it.
