Wild Wild West

“It’s not personal. It’s business.”

Lived by this my whole life, never quite understanding the irony. Business is nothing nor personal. It’s based on trust and confidence, loyalty and connection; things you build with those you are personal with.

When any of these are betrayed due to business reasons; when one puts business first then we lose then we lose ourselves…

Greed is a funny emotion. Masquerading in the name of business, greed for money and material possessions. Capitalism pinning man against man, fighting to survive, to put food on the table.

I did everything I was suppose to do but I can’t find my place. It’s a racket out there. When I try to focus on business and be frank, people take it personal…when I’m emotional people say it’s just business…which is it?

Or maybe why can’t it be both?
