Today I was feeling frustrated being around an irritating person. I looked at them to see if there was anything about them that I didn’t like about myself. I do believe that we can learn a lot about ourselves by the way we react to others. There is nothing about this person that I could honestly see in myself. Yeah!!! That’s a good thing. What this person does that irritates affects everyone they get around. It has nothing to do with anyone else, but them.
Why do people annoy others? I think sometimes it’s for the same reason people bully others. They have a need for attention and often to be loved. The sad thing is that their actions actually do the opposite, it pushes people away.
What makes it hard for me is that I love everyone. I don’t give up on anyone, and I always look for the good in them, but sometimes even my good hearted character can be challenged, and pushed to a breaking point.
What does this have to teach me about myself? Right now the only good answer I can find is that I’m human.
