  • M just going through this kind of phase n feeling anxious so searched for technique to deal with such issue n m shocked to find soo many ppl alike me suffering from same issue across the world. Its every where. M strong believer in live n let live; however i feel ppl with this motto suffers a lot.. Don’t understand why why ppl tend to be like this, competitive/ insecure/ backbiting.. We have one life then why cant we just spread love, equality.., in this covid 19 pandemic, when all of us should stand together, help one another;i fond everyone serving personal goal only.. Nobody bothers, be it politicians, employers.. Lets all of us pray for a secured and lovable environment around.. I pray for peace

  • Dear Dan, I am extremely sensitive, (I’ve got adhd) and I am working a temporary job and I am working in a warehouse and extremely clumsy. There isn’t a lot of space and I’m forever saying sorry for getting in someone’s way. How can I be polite without being a doormat for getting in someone’s way?

  • Please do not take this man’s advice because this man is assuming that people are basically good and that is just not the case. This is from my 48 years of experience most people when it comes down to it are mean backstabbing humans and that’s probably 99% Again from my personal experience. The best thing to do is just keep your mouth shut and look for another job or just keep your mouth shut because if they tell on you once and you confront them they’re going to go tell on you again. I know that from experience and because management don’t care it’s whoever tattles first…… is going to side with them. This is very bad advice. I am not trying to offend anyone this is just the life experience that I have had. And I do not hang out with criminals nor people that do drugs I don’t hang out with anybody at work or at home.

  • Your are better than them, and they want to make you feel bad. The only best revenge is ignore them and be a better you make them CRAZY

  • I’ve had a coworker straight up say to me they are afraid of confrontation and approaching people. They are supposed to be in charge of other people. Have had multiple instances where they talk shit behind my back because they’re too pussy to talk to me straight up. It’s absolutely infuriating.

  • Workplace ain’t high school. You’re there to make money, not friends. Keep your work life completely separate from personal life, just like oil and water don’t mix. Constructive confrontation is the manliest thing a man can do and the most professional work ethic.

  • Great video. Thank you. I have also recorded a video on toxic people and how to deal with them. Check it out on my channel. Peace.
