I am not going to say I was not shocked by “the incident” but I was not surprised. Because I think, to some extent, I do know you. You are a passionate man, a caring person, and also a very proud individual. Not proud in the egotistical ‘look at me’ sense, but in the ‘I love what I do and I am happy to see it presented and represented well and in a good light’ sense.
That is why when you saw what could possibly damage your work you reacted. We all do it, and from time to time our reactions have unwanted consequences. But that does not make us stupid. It makes us human, compassionate, sincere and real – and that is what you are, human, compassionate, sincere and so very real.
Your reaction might have had an unpleasant outcome but it showed your real commitment to your work and client. And that my friend is what makes you successful. You weren’t at all an idiot, just very human.
As for the vultures, I personally think, from time to time we all need to know who our real friends are – incidents like this are a true and accurate measure.
