the Infinite Monkey speaks: on difficult people
Random brilliance from across the blogosphere…
Difficult people exist and there’s nothing we can do about it. Every day, there will be people who will drive recklessly into our lanes, cut our queue, be rude to us, shirk responsibilities, make unreasonable demands and the list goes on. I can choose to let these people affect me or I can choose to remain true to myself. Even when it feels like I’m on the losing end.

This is something I struggle with all the time. I seem to let rude people get under my skin, to the point where I can stew about it and let it ruin the entire day. Thanks for reminding me to keep working on letting it go and not taking it personally.
I let rude or mean people get under my skin a lot, too. I’m better about that now than I used to be, and there are periods when those kinds of people/situations just roll off my back. I have a theory about the ability to let those things go, and I think I may have talked about it during the happiness discussions. Maybe I’ll look that up and explore that a little bit more!
Rude people are a pain–and sometimes that pain is–well, me.
Though I loathe to admit it, me too.
