What do you classify as your weakness?
Sometimes adulting is hard, people are idiots and being nice isn’t all that easy anymore.
I strive to be nice though, in a world where common courtesy is becoming a long lost commodity , being nice is practically a super power.
Smiling at a snarky cashier or not getting too worked up when someone is a gigantic jerk, that takes skill.
For the most part I forgive easily and I move on quickly… many see this as a weakness, I don’t.
It takes a whole lot of strength to “suck it up”. I’m no angel, I have people I vent to and I make up revenge sequences in my head and recoil in horror when the perfect comeback comes to me a day later…MAAAAN! I should have said.
But for the most part I’m okay being a nice person.
This is why I don’t become jaded…. I cry, I stomp my feet, I get upset in the moment and then I move on…
I’m not a complete dits so I realise so and so had no right to speak to me like THAT but hey maybe she’s having a bad day, maybe she just got awful news, maybe she’s just a b&*ch.
The thing is, I’m not letting anyone steal my joy! There is so little joy to go around, I refuse to let go of mine
Four women in my life each have a saying that comes to mind when people are being jerks…
1. MY LATE GOD MOTHER – OTHER PEOPLE’S OPINIONS OF YOU ARE NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS
2. MY LATE GRAN – DON’T FILL THE TRUNK OF YOUR HEART WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S BAGGAGE
3. MY MOM – YOU CAN’T CONTROL WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU ONLY HOW YOU REACT TO IT
4. MY BESTIE – THIS TOO SHALL PASS
