I’m the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. It’s awful. If I’m on my way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody asks me where I’m going, I’m liable to say I’m going to the opera. It’s terrible” (J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye).
Men lie. Men lie especially if it concerns money and incomes. They are sure that women are focused exceptionally on materialistic values. Well, it is a mistake to think so. Anyway men tend to exaggerate their achievements and deeds. Of course there are many women who buy into all these tricks. But you should remember that it is not the main thing they are interested in.
Recently more and more people tend to come cross the vast number of appeals to think positively on the internet, on TV or in the press. “Keep smiling!” and “Think positive!” are really annoying mottoes actually. Especially when all these posters and banners are spiced with the bright rainbows, animated butterflies, yellow smiles and happy suns. If you see that kind of stuff be sure that it is the business of the “positivist” sect. But these communities which claim they bring positive way of thinking to the people’s lives are actually having the negative effect on the mental state of the others.
Our world is not perfect as well as people who surround us. Many people do have problems at work. Sometimes it is really hard to overcome the situation. It is much harder to do when you have no chance to quit and actually when you just do not want to leave the position. It may happen that you like your job but not people you are working with. Then every single day would be stressful and you would have to cope with it somehow. If the job is significant to you then the only possible way to solve the problem is try to compromise. Otherwise you would fail.
