If someone does something that upsets you, what would you do? Would you fight for your rights and make sure that your voice is heard loud and clear or would you just repeat the mantra ‘patience is a virtue’? At times it appears easier to repeat that ‘holy’ mantra, but then again for how long? At times I feel that I am not respected and thence I’d naturally not look forward to be in that situation again – and tell myself I’d rather be doing something else which makes me happy and be around people who appreciates me and constantly reminding myself that I can’t please everyone. I have been the trying-to-please-everyone type; and I learnt that it’s eating me inside to continually doing that.
Right now, despite of having some thoughts coming to my mind, it makes me happier to at least push aside the thoughts and think of how lucky I am to have a wonderful family, a loving partner, amazing friends, and fur-kids with full of zest!
