I stumbled and fell over my humanness today.
Reading too much into something small, imagining a slight where (perhaps) one was never meant and feeling generally miserable about the way I was (hopefully) unwittingly treated. I suspect it's a case of hormones but regardless of the cause, a few tears of self pity were shed as I struggled with a sense of being undervalued and unappreciated.
I should like to be commuted to perfection please. But in the meantime I will settle for my husband who sprinkled a salve of love, kindness and rose petals onto my smarting psyche.
This also popped into my inbox today, a gentle, timely reminder:
Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can)
Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most)
Sit on your ego
