I remember once in school a difference of opinion between teachers. It was a simple thing in how to approach the start of an exercise book. One teacher said that we should leave a line between title and paragraph as that was neater. Another said that that was wasting space and there should be no skipped line.
I was bullied in school. They used to jump on my backpack which pulled on the straps and hurt my neck. They called me names. However I remember one day, during Games, those same people were encouraging and there tacit understanding that I was trying even if I wasn’t getting results. I remember thinking, even all those years ago, that I wanted consistency.
The reality is that there are always going to be people who we don’t get along with. (We can’t have the world in the clip above) Bullying is an extreme form of this, and always unacceptable, but if some one is mean I can at least put them in a box marked mean.
The point is I want to know where I stand. It is the inconsistencies that I find to be a cause of irritation. Whatever the rule is I can then follow it. Inconsistency makes that impossible. It is a form of change and I struggle with change. I think on some level I always will.
I have been looking for a long time for a new job. That will be a big change when it happens and I hope that I will settle into that well. I am sure some changes are good – I’ll let you know if I find any. I still haven’t gotten over Opal Fruits and the Principality Stadium is still the Millennium Stadium as far as I am concerned.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
