Fall Out Girl
It sucks to be unpopular.
Sadly, though, I’m obsessed with doing what is right, following rules, and complying with federal regulations.
It’s an unusual quirk, for sure. Especially since so many are not only willing to disregard rules, but insist on making up their own.
So, it comes down to self preservation. When audits are revealed, it will be me who will be deemed un-compliant if I let these problems continue. And since I have recently discovered the need and the art of self preservation, I am not willing to take the fall for folks who are supposed to be smarter. At least that’s what their comparative compensation indicates. They could go a lot longer than I can without pay, or at least they should be able to.
I do not begrudge living within my means, I just will not let anyone subterfuge my meager means. It is this stance which has put me into the precarious position of unpopularity.
I’m not happy that others are angry.
I’m not pleased that they feel betrayed.
I’m not comfortable being labeled an instigator.
I’m not looking forward to the resentment.
But I also do not intend to apologize for doing what is proper, and retaining my integrity (if only with myself).
If I could sleep, I would do so with a clear conscience, despite my unsettled heart.
Fully relying on GOD means acknowledging my obvious inner compass.
And, blessedly, my inner compass just steers that way.
