Prompt time: Oil, Meet Water
I won’t name any names, as I rather value my current friendships…..and can’t afford to lessen my social circle – I don’t know why but I struggle to fit in sometimes. QUACK. Sorry; I’m not sure where that came from.
Anyhow, I always focus on what I like about someone rather than that one thing (or two…or maybe three) that they do or think that gets my goat; put my blinders on and realise that I might be just as annoying. Who knows; if you think they’re a pain sometimes, what must they think about you……oh man! That’s too much introspection – next stop, existential crisis.
My basic philosophy: let him/her who is without annoying habits cast the first stone, or something thoughtful like that.
