I try to constantly rise above the idiotic nonsense of others and their petty, selfish remarks meant purposefully to wound and hurt others. For the most part, it's water off a ducks back to me. I can deal with it really quite well. I'm good at it. I haven't always been, but in the last few years I've figured out a few personal tricks on how to deal with all the BS people seem to sling at others almost daily.
I don't do well with someone I care about being insulted though, and I know a few who are the same way. They don't deal well with others who do the same to me. I had a sarcastic remark or two thrown my way today, and one really good friend of mine was up in arms when they heard about it. I suppose I can't blame them. I would have been the same way if the comment had been made about them.
It was a day of stress, drama and headache today. It was a day I just wanted to hide from the world and go to bed. I go through that once in a while, where I feel uncomfortable in my own skin. I call it the Deafening Silence, or my internal isolation, but it's all the same. It's the Blues, I guess. Perhaps I just need a bit of Doug MacLeod or Ben Powell to get me through.
Meanwhile, I've made a massive mess with the computer at work that my poor Boss is having to fix, and I couldn't feel worse about it. Sure, bad days happen - but being distracted by a bad day can sometimes make things far worse, like today. :(
I think I need a visit from an out of State friend of mine. Roll On February!
