It’s been an unwritten rule for me to not say “I told you so,” to people when it goes down just as I thought it would. My children are most likely excluded from my childish remarks – unless of course its’ something that is a serious matter.
Mostly because I don’t like it when people say that to me. I think to myself, “They had no idea that result was going to happen.” But, nevertheless the words come out of their mouth as if they are as sure as the sky is blue. Bottom line: Every dog has his day. It’s not about who is right or wrong. For me, it’s about helping receptive people, kind people, loving people be better. In fact, be the best they can be.
That is sooooo much more gratifying to see someone soar in success after numerous attempts at something they were unable to accomplish before, than indulging your ego in a snarky phrase like that.
