Champagne Problems

Do You Burn Too Many Bridges?

“Remember, Remember the 5th of November.” Well, it’s now the 9th of November, but that’s okay. If you haven’t heard of the awesome (yet kinda scary cause, like, what if they get us?) loosely hackivist group calling themselves “Anonymous”, then you are living under some sort of hack-free rock. The group formed in 2003 took over a few fairly large websites including most of NBC and oddly enough Lady Gaga’s site with the hopes of delivering their message of justice and the correction of social injustice.

Now, how does this pertain to you, or Champagne Problems, for that matter? Well, “be careful who you cross” is the overall theme. Too many times in our teen and 20s (and heck, the rest of our live) we think we are an invincible breed, that when we wrong another person, we won’t see them again so it’s no big deal if they suffer the wrath now. Oh me, oh my, that couldn’t be further from the truth. You see, the reality is this world may be huge geographically but, as you will come to find as you get older, it’s small indeed. People that you cross will somehow manage to make their way back in your life, probably due to circumstance, and you will left with that awkward, “Uh, I didn’t mean it” that may or may not work.

The key factor to managing someone or something when you are on the outs is basically do the right thing, no matter how scared you are do to go that route. In the end, things may go awry but in a civil way – whether it’s a job, a friendship, or a relationship, it’s those that cowardly hide behind the idea that “they won’t see them again” that get bit in the tuckus month/days/years down the road. Don’t let that be you. Make amends with those you aren’t in total agreement so it won’t be citing those breathy words: “Remember, remember the 5th (9th) of November.”
