If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished? – Rumi
Are you easily irritated? Do little things people do just rub you wrong? Are you just about ready to let off some steam to that person that is sooooo annoying??
Relax…………..find the lesson………..what is it that these situations are trying to teach you………what is it in you that is annoying your LIFE that it has set out to set up situations for your attention, so that you GET IT!!!??
I know a man he is the most vocal and straight forward speaker if he thinks that it is worth saying…..sometimes it annoys the crap out of me…He is my HUSBAND. I have been with this man for 12 years. We have been married 10 years today. Over the years I have heard him say some of the (so-I-Thought) harshest of things to me. That I needed to grow up…get your head out of the cloud and back into reality…that I was trying to manipulate the situation…and I have found out that YES he was right. Often I did not like what he had to say. Often I wanted to flip the situation into his lap and say that he just didn’t understand me. Often I wanted to tell him where to stuff it.
His ability to speak what he saw in me….to my face…I thought at the time was sooooooo judgemental. HE WAS LOVING ME…telling me the truth of what I looked like. I thought I was good…no issues here:0) but through his ability and others that are around me to just be honest and love me anyway when I would freak out that they were just so unkind…I learned from each and every rub. I learned to have self-examination. To began to look at myself and see if I liked my behavior.
Sometimes we can’t stand those people who tell us what we look like………….learn from it. Maybe they are being judgemental…we all are…arent we?? We all think we are right…Right??? LEARN from it….just because you think they maybe wrong in their tone…their judgementalism….their attitude………doesnt mean they are ALL WRONG!!
Seek to find the truth….what is it that you do that causes that kind of reaction to you???
