Food-For-Followship, part 1, take 2

I’m the oldest of 4 kids, so alot of my instinct is about being bossy & leading. 
It’s been part of my “job” since I started pushing around my first bro, Jason, 31 years ago. 
And a lot of times this butts up against my non-instinct to follow. 
That being said, I’d like to compare two bosses:My current boss, troygramling atflamingoroadchurch and a former boss, we’ll call her “Loca” at XYZ Company.
These bosses were TOTALLY different. I am their common denominator.
They both led me, I followed both of them.
I have been working for Troy for 5 months, I worked for “Loca” for one month.
Troy hasn’t fired me yet. “Loca” fired me after 30 days.
What I didn’t do well under “Loca’s” leadership (even though it sucked) was follow well.
I didn’t trust her, I didn’t give her the chance to be trusted, I didn’t pray for her, I didn’t pray for our work-relationship. 
I didn’t give her the benefit of the doubt. I didn’t just let her get the “win.” 
I didn’t keep silent about her to my peers. 
And the list goes on.
I just wonder, at times, when it comes to the bad working scenario… is it really their bad leadership, or is it…our bad followship*
