When did I become so jaded?
Last night I sat through a meeting during which I alternately wanted to laugh out loud and bitchslap someone.
Ten years ago, I could have sat through that meeting and felt rejuvenated. I would have felt important and powerful, and like a part of something.
And now? It all sounds like advanced BS and flat-out lies.
I'm bothered. It's frustrating.
What's most frustrating for me in all this is that, in admitting that this is all advanced BS I lose this big part of myself. The part that really believes that people want to do the right things and really care about the welfare of others. That people in a position of power and authority who CAN make a difference really WANT to and WILL make a difference.
It's sad really. Everyone sat there and listened to all the big plans and the exciting changes and they nodded their heads and smiled and I kept thinking,
Why isn't anyone saying the truth?
