Finding Less to Fight About


How nice it is when you finally settle down and don’t take everything so personally anymore!

When you’re young and don’t know any better, you can take offense so easily.  Things that really don’t matter get you bristling, an innocent word or action by someone instantly jumps you into fight or flight mode, and heaven forbid anyone actually outright tries to insult you!

That makes for a rough, stressful, often gut-wrenching life.  😦

How nice it is when you finally settle down and don’t take everything so personally anymore!

Then things that don’t really matter usually run off you like water on a duck’s back, innocent words and actions stay innocent and may even make you smile, and you finally find yourself overlooking insults as thoughtless or actually meaningless moments by someone who is in some type of immediate distress, feeling insecure.

And you can easily let it go.

Especially when it comes from someone you love.  You put them first, and more important, than whatever it is that is trying to get between you.  You might let it in for a moment, that’s only human.  But you know how to rise above it and move on to more important things.

True bliss!
