Phun-size Philosophy # 17 – Compromising Situations

Compromising situations are places in which you are put in a position where factors aren’t going in your favor. They usually don’t have any good things associated with them especially when they are revealed to the general public. Compromising situations can happen because you lack judgment at a certain time in your life where your actions are determined by the “heat of the moment.” Other times it just means that some action you have done completely innocently may be misconstrued and possibly taken out of context. You see on TV all the time when someone takes a picture of a person doing something suspicious and there isn’t any background on what was occurring at the time, it will probably create drama. Background helps define what was going on and helps clear any uncertainty that may create doubts or misunderstandings. If people take advantage of these compromising situations they may use it as leverage to get you to do things you might not want to do. There are many forms of this but probably the most popular one is blackmail where you must give into their demands or they will reveal something to the public you may not want them to. If it does get revealed it usually will tarnish your reputation or has some other negative impact on you and your identity. It will most likely change the general external perspective on your collective being for the worse. So what’s the best way to deal with this? I think you should stay strong and not bend to the pressure of others wanting to manipulate you because if you didn’t do anything wrong, you should defend your position. Now once a juicy rumor spreads like wildfire it becomes hard to quench but I believe that if you honestly didn’t do anything wrong then the truth will be revealed. If you did mess up you should admit to your mistake as early as you can so the consequences don’t build up and you don’t get revealed as a fraud. Now that would be one of the worse things that could happen.
