Nobody Likes Me! Boo Hoo!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Plus

So, after losing a couple of listings recently I have been feeling very sorry for myself, you feel sorry for me too right? Say, yes . . . oh, never mind.  Anyway, as I was saying, I am feeling sad and lonely (hide the chocolate) because nobody likes me. All this whining reminded me of something my husband said to me several years ago as we were driving along on our way to watch our son play football. I was going on and on about how these potential clients didn't like me and I didn't understand why, what's wrong with me?

Now, my husband and I have very different cultural backgrounds, let's say for the sake of me not putting my foot in my mouth, that he is from Mars and I am from Pluto.  So, when there was I break in the action (I had to take a breath after all) he comes out with this amazing comment that I really have tried to think of when I need a Green Alien Cartoon  boost. He said, "You know what's wrong Purple Alien Cartoonwith you Plutonians (is that even a word?) you always think, what's wrong with me that they don't like me and us Martians think, what's wrong with them that they don't like me!" And it was like this HUGE light bulb came on in my head and I was like,  oh , well I never thought of it like that!  He was so right. We have enough negative influences in our lives and business, let's not be one of them ourselves! Whew, at least the ice cream is safe.

PS I almost had a break down getting these dumb cartoons in here! I Guess I should read the instructions. He'd have something to say about that too.

Very good saying. I am Martian but sometimes my inner Plutonian sneaks out as well. I will keep that saying in mind.
