Oil, Meet Water
Of the people who are close to you, who is the person most unlike you? What makes it possible for you to get along?
There will be certain people in your life that you meet and you click with them immediately. You know they think like you, have similar interests to you and you can talk for days on end with that person.
However, there will always be certain people that you won’t be able to get along with very well. Simply because you have different ideologies and the thinking processes you carry cannot be shared.
I found such a person and he just so happened to be both my personal tutor and my employer as I trained my way to becoming a pharmacist. Now this man was not only in charge of paying me my wage but also had the responsibility of passing of as competent. This is a huge deal when it comes to the world of Pharmacy. Should he not agree to sign your forms, you are pretty much stuck unless you take the harder path which I for one could not be bothered.
So what did I do?
I grit my teeth and tried to make it work. Its not that I completely gave up but introduced my personality to him slowly rather all abrupt so that he could be given time to understand me. I tried to meet him halfway with things but often it had put in more eggs into the basket before he agreed.
Eventually I managed to find something that would work for both of us. I call this an emulsifier. Finding that common ground.
You see, with an emulsifier, it is possible for Oil and Water to mix. It is like a common ground that allows them both to mingle and become one.
That is how I believe you deal with an Oil and Water problem.
I hope you enjoyed reading and would love to hear from you about what you thought about my post.
