People can be hypocritical, sarcastic, two faced, fickle, dishonest, hateful, evil, deviant, abusive, compulsive, AND loving, honest, compassionate, giving, selfless, forgiving, patient, kind, considerate, AND empathetic. Obviously there are many other adjectives that describe people but one thing is for sure, we aren’t always a bed of roses. Even the most purest person can be an absolute ass. Well maybe not an “ass” but definitely a bed of “thorns” with no sign of rose petals! Those are the type of people you ask, ” What happened to this person, or Who is this person really?” You know the type, the kind that throw you waaaaaaaay off track and leave you in a state of shock. Yes, yes we all have bad days but I’m talking about pure hell, one extreme to the other type of behavior. We all have run into someone like this at some point in our lives right? What do you do? I guess that’s a loaded question because it depends on the relationship. There are many things you can do, many choices you can take and decisions are based on the relationship with that person that may be having a “mental breakdown.” It’s important to look at all variables.
So hear we are in holiday season once again and many people find it to be stressful. Perhaps you will run into that person that’s “no bed of roses” during your holiday shopping, or maybe it’s someone you live with that’s having “a moment” and they may just need a time out from the world. Maybe you’ll smile and forgive that person of there momentary breakdown, or maybe you wont. However you choose to deal with people is your prerogative. May I suggest to remember nobody’s perfect, pray for there well being but never, never forget you’re a priority and your well being is just as important (emotional & physical).
“I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best” Marilyn Monroe
“If your going through hell, keep going.” Winston S.Churchill
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and whatever else you may celebrate!
