Sometimes even hiding away from the world and trying to beat the stress of the week, we just can’t get away from it. Someone finds us in the underbrush, says something unsettling or unnecessary, and our hackles go up. Much as we may try to blend in, they find us, almost determined to disturb our peace.
They don’t really care because they have only one agenda: their own! Find them, sniff them out and ruffle their fur. Maybe they find humor in it or think it’s a power game.
Well today I took the horse by the tail and spoke back. Answered the group email that included my name even though the accusations had nothing to do with me. To tell me to ignore it is ridiculous when it was sent to me. Then don’t include me if I am not to blame! And to make up lame excuses to disturb me on my weekend is rude.
Each interaction we have in life is choice in how we choose to conduct it, whether via email, text or face to face. So in my estimation there are no excuses when we upset the other person, because most likely, we could have done a better job in the first place.
