Some things just resinate with me… the graphic to the right is one of those things.
I could have saved myself much dismay if I would have just learned to ignore things [sooner].
I started by not psychoanalyzing every snide remark, disdainful glance and backhanded compliment that came my way; it was a relief. I moved on to ignoring the people talking too loud on their cellphones [in public] and being cut off in traffic by bad drivers. It has become more natural [as the weeks have gone by] and life really does get easier when you ignore the little things.
Don’t get me wrong… I still have my moments and I’m not asking anyone to be a doormat if someone routinely treats you badly, but I ignore more go today than I ever have before and I’m happier for it. Take control of your reaction or lack there of and you just might get on the path yourself.
