Bigger than the irritants

Line cutters and loud talkers are among the top things that irritate many people. What are the things that annoy you and the people who are close to you? Did you notice that these irritants are usually small things that can give you so much stress, and you begin to ask yourself, “Is it worth it?”

Being good does not mean you are exempted from being bothered by other people’s ill manners and lack of consideration. It is normal to feel offended, but maybe you must consider stretching your patience, especially when people do not see any issue with their actions and refuse to change.

One preacher’s advice is to look at a situation and consider how important it is in the grand scheme of things. Is it small? Then it’s not worth the argument, the elevated blood pressure, the time, and the added wrinkles. Stop allowing small things to affect the more important things in your life – your mood, your desire yo reach your goals, your relationships, and your future.

Don’t waste words on people who do not admit they are wrong and are quick to downplay their actions. Take this advice from a wise man: “Let nothing disturb you. Peace of mind is of superlative worth.”

Pray about the situation and do what needs to be done. Some things may look heavy and depressing, but adding a regular dose of laughter to your daily life will improve your mood and help you cope.
