What Goes Around
Patience may be a virtue, but it’s not one of mine.
I lost my shit today. I lost my temper, I shook both middle fingers at my computer screen, and I created some new swear words. I gave a five-minute soliloquy on stupid people to a sympathetic mirror.
Lost. My. Shit.
I found the same concept as the above meme in a book last month. We get what we give the universe.
Holy shit. Is someone out there, giving some poor mirror a five-minute diatribe about me?
The concept of “Get What You Give” is eye-opening, for me at least. I’d like to stop having these conversations with myself. I also don’t want to irritate others. Not only do I need to control my responses, I need to change how I feel about the initial trigger. The only person it hurts is me, especially if it continues to come around.
My pledge for tomorrow, and beyond:
I will be gentle with others because I’d like them to be gentle with me.
I will be kind to others because I’d like them to be kind to me.
I will love my peeps, and I hope they love me back.
I need to find love for those irritations, too. I, too, can be incredibly irritating. I have been known to give five-minute soliloquies railing against my own stupidity. All I can do, all any of us can do, is our best.
