Tips for a stress-free life #7

Whatever you do, or say, or believe, somebody, somewhere is bound to criticise it.
Or dislike it.
Or be offended by it.

‘Tis but the law of averages.

So when somebody tells you off for something you’ve done, or said, or believe in – simply because it doesn’t match with their world-view – just smile at them and tell them to go tickle a donkey’s ear.

Because the same law of averages means that somebody, somewhere, approves of your action/speech/belief.  And likes it. And is doing the same.

This tactic is particularly handy when dealing with holier-than-thou, I-know-better, smug neighbours and colleagues.
