Monkey Poop

Dang, that’s a catchy title! You have to give me some credit here. {giggling} Seriously though, have you ever seen the videos of monkeys throwing their poop at humans that are visiting at the zoo? Most people find the videos humorous. I, for one, have to admit it’s entertaining to watch and the reactions are hilarious.Last week, I had a normal conversation turn completely sour and it left me bewildered why the person felt the need to voice their unwarranted opinion. Having just recently received my certification in Neuro Linguistic Programming; I desperately wanted to figure out what could have made this person conduct themselves in such a harsh manner. I couldn’t help but laugh hysterical when one thought came to mind…monkey poop! I kept playing a ‘gif’ that I had seen over and over in my head. My final conclusion was simple. This was their shit; not mine!I researched why monkeys do this disgusting act. It lined right up with my perspective on the entire situation I had encountered. Apparently, when chimps are kept in captivity, they experience stress and agitation, which can cause them to resort in throwing things. Captive chimpanzees are deprived of the diverse objects they would find in nature, and the most readily available projectile is feces.The research continued with finding that in addition, if a chimp is bored, you’ll see them throw poop. One article that compared our likeness as humans to chimps said, “this is something that humans most definitely do not do.”I disagree. I think many humans throw their own shit at people! Maybe not the physical feces however, follow me on this thought process.You are going to come across many confrontations in your life that will leave you feeling absolutely shocked, disrespected, disappointed and maybe even bruised inside. When this happens, you should take time to first process what has taken place. Let your emotions go through the motions. Then, self reflect quietly. See if you have any responsibility or accountability you may need to take in the matter at hand. Look at all the players and the people mentioned, even if they did not participate. Sometimes, you will see and decipher what is right and what is wrong . Other times, you are going to need to whipe that monkey poop off your face and clearly see it for what it is; their own shit. Like a chimp, they are aggravated and stressed over something that they actually caused themselves. Instead of taking responsibility for their mistake; they attempt to fill their new void by throwing it all on you. (In some cases, it’s drama. People get bored and uncomfortable when life is too calm.)Nevertheless, if it’s not your issue, don’t let yourself get sucked in any further. I mean, poop can get really messy and it stinks! And to think it’s not even yours!I love this saying-what other people think of you, is none of your business. Forgive it and then make a choice. You can either throw the shit back or simply leave the zoo!*********************************
