I allow the babbling of insecure, mean or even intelligently deficient people get under my skin sometimes. I know these people do not care about me. Why do I listen to them? I mean, if they did care about my opinion or what I do, they wouldn’t attack the things I do or try and demean my intelligence or what I believe in. Why do I continue to listen? I should just allow it to wash over me and fall to the ground like water off a duck’s back. Yep, that is what I should do and a lot of times, I do. I do a pretty good job of weeding out the negative.
BUT SOMETIMES we get caught off guard, don’t we!? I guess I got caught with my guard down today. I know this is it. When you are in a group of your friends who you normally feel quite safe around, it can happen in an instant! Yes, I know we all have different opinions. That is life. I know that. I really do. ALTHOUGH, when someone is just downright mean to you and professes to be your friend all at the same time, that is when it hits ya from behind. You don’t see it coming! Differences in opinions become a fire that is fueled by inconsideration, thoughtlessness and a natural uncaring spirit. I must remember at these times that everyone doesn’t think like me. I generally–most all the time–like everyone. I am considerate of others’ feelings. I do my absolute best not to be an irritation to others. I definitely strive to compliment instead of criticize. I see through others’ points of view or at least try my best to. I don’t scoff at them or even sigh heavily at their unintelligence or downright annoying actions. I know I shouldn’t expect all these things from everyone around me, because truthfully, it will never be a perfect world. I’m not saying I’M PERFECT at any of it, but I do hope I am nice to my friends at least. I hope I don’t unknowingly make others mad by stupid things I do or say. I pray I don’t do that! The worse part is not knowing your being dumb.
Anyway, I think I’ve finally talked about this enough that I feel better about it. Haha!
Let’s end this blog with some POSITIVE…
My wish for you is like the Rascal Flatts song:
“My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.”
And another song that is important to me:
DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!
