It’s not worth it

We could nag and complain our entire lives away about the little things that annoy us, but where would that get us? There are certain habits and ways of life that people cannot change, and you shouldn’t expect them to. Instead, take a look inside and ask why certain actions bother you.Often, you’ll be surprised to find that the cause of your annoyance is rooted in yourself. Is there something you do that you wish you didn’t? A bad habit you can’t break? Maybe there’s a connection to whatever it is that bothers you in others. Take a deeper look.

In the meantime, when those crumbs are staring at you from the counter or you hear the popping of those knuckles, refocus your energy. Acknowledge that you’re bothered; take a deep breath; and move on. Don’t waste precious time or feelings on the little stuff. It’s not worth it

  1. James says:

    A collection of ancient Jewish wisdom called the Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) states in part:

    “Who is wise? One who learns from every man. Who is strong? One who overpowers his desires. Who is rich? One who is satisfied with is lot. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows.”

    -Pirkei Avot 4:1

    Those words could possibly pre-date Christ, and yet it sort of sounded like you were saying something similar.
