Nobody Said It Was Easy
I realize being self-aware of yourself isn’t enough in this world, you also have to be willing to try to better yourself as well. I know my faults, well and the older I get the more I’m aware of them. I think it’s an important part of getting older is seeing these parts of yourself and trying to deal with them.
I frustrate myself a lot, once something gets caught in my craw it’s nearly impossible for me to let it go. Things irritate me, in kind of an OCD way, that it makes me so miserable I can’t even explain it. The older I get the more pet peeves I find I have and often things that are totally ridiculous. I can’t stand people cutting in line or cutting me off in traffic, it will sometimes ruin my entire day. That’s no way to live.
Life can be so hard and there is no reason to hold onto things that don’t matter in the great scheme of things and I try to remind myself of this as often as I can. What’s most important is having a roof over your head, nourishment and someone who loves you. We don’t all think the same or feel the same, something that’s important to me might not be important to you. You might find me messy and I might find you at times selfish.
Note: I promise this is not directed at anyone, this is more about me and how I view the world and putting my thoughts out there.
