But you can change the way you react to them. Hmmm…..simple yet profound. That was advice that was given in a Lifetime movie last night and really stuck in my mind. We all know someone, a child, co-worker, or friend maybe who doesn’t think or act like we do and as a result we are often very frustrated by them. Is that their fault? No, it’s not, that’s just who/how they are. If we are frustrated by them it’s because we allow them to frustrate us. Think about it…….. you cannot change them. What you can change is yourself. Sounds simple enough but I know it is easier said than done. The sooner we can embrace this way of thinking, the better our relationship with them will be. Give it a try …. really make a conscious decision to react differently and see how it goes.
