A little confounded by how to deal with Clients and avoiding political talk. I live in California so I am surrounded by Trump haters. I am pretty passionately for him so it is extremely difficult to endure, especially how reactive I am to bite my tongue and just let them express their distaste. Yes it is an actual distaste. Like they are spitting out his name in disgust. I have my reasons for believing in him, same as they have theirs for hating him. It’s just such an unusual thing to have such venomous reaction to a president. In my life I have never seen such a need to hate, to spew, to persist in profanity and tirades over our president. I just nod my head and say mmm hmmm. I dare not contradict such deep rooted anger. I leave them to say what they say and scream when they leave.
This is business and I struggle enough to keep the clients I have, so with all that I am I just have to sing a song in my head, recite the pledge allegiance, think about what things I need to organize, anything to be louder in my head than they are. I know where the road of my overreaction will lead, so just don’t.
