Hey Kid: Necessary Evils
There are a few things in life that no one enjoys, and yet we have to participate. Here’s my partial list:
- Going to the dentist
- Annual Pelvic Exam (Girls)
- Prostate Exams (Boys)
- Paying Taxes
- Bridal/Baby Showers
No one likes these things but everyone has to do them once in a while. I like to refer to things like this as necessary evils. While they are not actual “evil” in the literal sense, they are all things that we dread. I can’t imagine anyone enjoying any of the listed events and yet we’ll all endure them over and over again during our lifetimes.
These are moments when you look at the big picture and try to focus on the positives of your participation, the goals that will make a difference. I.e. Good health or happy family relationships.
Don’t complain about these types of things… Just get through them.
