Bella Vista writer focuses on playing the blame game
A laughable piece by Stephanie Culp (“Make it stop now,” July 10). She contends that if a female high school student receives a derogatory remark from a male high-schooler that she’s “bound to be a failure in the workplace.” How many years later? Get a life!
She’s let Donald Trump affect her life to the point of no return. If this attitude continues she’ll find herself in a prison cell of her own making. If she’d put more effort into her own success, she might become an Oprah or Martha Stewart instead of sitting in her room whining.
I was a short (vertically challenged), fat (not my fault) kid who paid no attention to tall or thin kids who threw darts my way. In fact, they motivated me to develop an “I’ll show you” mentality that served me well as an exceptional employee in the workplace. I’m married to a can-do woman who got an education and became a success through hard work and enjoying life.
It seems Stephanie speaks to women with an ax to grind, those who play the blame game over issues that shouldn’t and don’t affect them personally. They’re being controlled by someone with whom they have no personal contact and probably never will.
Strangely enough, in the same paper dated July 10, was this answer to the previous day’s Daily Cryptoquote: “The seeds of resilience are planted in the way we process the negative events in our lives.” Anwar Sadat wrote: “Judge not the journey of life by one mile.” Negative moments are for personal growth.
