When you do things publicly, you’re going to have haters. If your alive, you’re going to run into not-so-great people.  What do you do with that?  And in 2020, we are all running on fumes, not at our best.  How do we navigate the knees and elbows of the times?


"When I give an asshole a break, I’m free.  I have a better day.”  – Mark J. Silverman


Today on Mastering Midlife:

  • People are grey… good one minute, rude the next
  • How I got the nickname “Belligerent Teddy Bear”
  • Giving the first 5 assholes of the day a break

  • Freedom comes from letting it go
