Lately, I’ve been letting tiny little niggly things get to me.
The kind of things that I know the other party doesn’t give a second thought to.
I love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
And likewise, the small stuff is only bugging me because I let it. I let it through and I let it stick around and fester.
You know what, small stuff? You’re overstaying your welcome.
It’s true. Some people are douchebags. Nothing I can do about that. Letting that get to me is fruitless. And we don’t want the douchebags to win.
Sometimes something or somebody is a priority for you, but not vice versa. That’s the way of the world. There’s only so much you can do, and beyond that it’s out of your control. Nothing to be done there.
Sometimes shit just happens.
And thus, I will quote another fantastic saying, the serenity prayer:
“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.”
Words to (try to) live by.
Are you a sensitive type like me ? Or do you let things roll off your back? How?
