” Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” Carl Gustav Jung
Do you find yourself being the one that always changes the toilet paper roll? Have you grabbed the sugar jar only to discover it needed to be refilled? Have you used the bathroom in the middle of the night and found yourself sunken in the toilet bowl because someone didn’t lower the seat? Are you the one who has to replace the paper towel roll because there are only 2 sheets left? I know your pain because It seems like every time I go to use something, I need to replace, restock, or replenish it. It’s annoying. NO, it’s irritating!!! Living with others is not always easy, it requires compromise and patience. It also requires that we open up the windows of our mind, and toss out our expectations of how we’d like things to be, and accept them as they are. When living with others, we have to learn NOT to sweat the small stuff. If not, we’ll find ourselves in a constant state of discord and irritability. To live in harmony, we must be willing to overlook some irritants in lieu of peace. So for this week’s blog, let’s talk SHIP about things that bother us….our IRRITATIONS!!!
