Day 9 of Lockdown
I’ve been thinking of a way to write this post in a positive and non-offensive way. But it’s pretty hard considering anything anybody says nowadays can easily be reversed and used against them so.
These are the top three things that really tick me off. I’m not gonna lie, there have been times that I’ve done these too. (See this is why I didn’t want to do this because I don’t want to sound like a hater AND a hypocrite).
- Deliberately making others feel uncomfortable
(and deliberately making others feel left out). You know it’s a sensitive topic. You know it’s not something they want to talk about. You know it’s something that they’re trying to come to terms with. But why do you constantly bring it up?
- Being chronically late. Ok there are times when you have a valid reason why you’re late. But if you’re late. every. single. time. then there must be something wrong. And it ain’t cool.
- Constantly being distracted by their phones. I used to always be on my phone, constantly checking social media, and failing to live in the present. (Wow. Something I used to do that ticks me off now). I am happy to report that I have greatly minimised this bad habit LOL I’ve realised how important it is to listen, be there, and give undivided attention to whoever you’re with, live in the moment, and just be content and happy with what’s currently happening.
Everybody makes mistakes and there’s always going to be that one thing that others do that drives us nuts. So even if it’s hard, let’s do our best to extend grace towards others.
