I Don’t Like Everybody. Do You?


There is some wisdom with age. I don’t like everyone that I meet and that’s okay. If I can, I avoid people who rub me the wrong way. If I can’t avoid them, I try to keep physical distance. If I can’t do that I remind myself that I don’t have to be around them for long. This is a change from my younger self.

In the past I would have been confrontational or obnoxious when having to be around people who are not my cup of tea as they say. Now I realize that as long as they are not doing anything to harm me, I don’t have to give them much thought.

This topic came to mind because recently a friend took some unintentional actions to be a slight and became angry. I thought they were kidding when they said they were angry only to find out later that they were serious. Wow!

My advice to everyone is don’t take everything so seriously. There are always real issues on the horizon. Save the angry energy for when there is a real problem.
