It’s incredible how much real adult life is like high school. People are vicious. Worse, Sugarcoated “Mean Girls”. People still find a way to be extremely exclusive and cliquey.
Throw in a pinch of selfishness and real life is worse than high school. If you weren’t there from the start, good luck trying to find a niche for yourself.
Anyway, no matter. It doesn’t matter who wants to be inclusive and who wants to be exclusive. If a person is a leader or truly talented, there’s no need to fall into a cycle of dependency.
People want to leave you out? Fine – if you can’t join them, beat them I say.
Capability will pave the path to success. 😎
