do it anyway.

In life, whatever you do is worth commenting on….unfortunately. No matter who you are and what you do, people will always have something to say.

Either they say it to your face — you should befriend them because their feedback will help you grow as a better person (or) they talk behind your back — screw them.

I’ve heard many of my friends and co-workers mention that their activities and the comments that others pass around behind their back. Therefore me being me, I chose to write a few words about it.

Here’s one of the incidents that happened at my workplace which is worth analysing—

At my workplace, the housekeeping staffs just had the floor cleaned assuming that we all went for lunch but turns out we came back to pick up our lunch which happens to be in the room that they just cleaned. This means that we either have to wait till the floor is dry or we’ll have to walk on a clean, wet surface which is not only dangerous but can stain the floor thanks of our filthy footwear. I chose to remove my footwear and proceed inside. That kind of took everyone by surprise, just like what I did here.

My colleagues had mixed feelings on this one —

Should I remove the footwear like he did or should I just proceed?

Would that make me a bad person here if I just walked right in?

I’m already hungry and I’m not ready for this

Some praised my actions and the rest hated me.

Before you do/try anything new in your school, maybe it's your work, always remember this —

People will always have something to say — DO IT ANYWAY.

DO IT ANYWAY just to make sure that you don’t hate yourself for not doing it at the right time at the right place when you had your chance.
