Lately I find myself frequently annoyed when others don’t meet my expectations or follow through on commitments. I have even been getting sort of depressed by people failing when I have counted on them. Not sure how to move past this. I am feeling the need to shake up everything in my life; just change it all up. But I realize that is likely not the best option. I have ended up in some organizations in my community that have become super dysfunctional and I end up waffling between walking away from what these groups do (which is really important to me) and sticking it out to keep the dysfunctional individuals from ruining the organization and its work. How do we respond when something that was precious to us is sucked into a black hole of pettiness and rancor by the craziness of an individual or group of individuals? How do we know when to cut and run and when to stay the course?
