dottiemama is envisioning a better future
After reading entries about people who want to start smoking I found myself feeling really bugged. Why? Why do I care? This happens all the time. It’s not as if I get upset anytime someone disagrees with me. But sometimes I just feel myself getting all tense inside until I want to scream. Pan handlers, able-bodied people who park in handicapped spots, people who cuss loudly in public, careless drivers, they all piss me off! I have to stop letting stuff like this bother me so much. It often doesn’t have anything to do with me directly; if they want to make poor choices, there’s basically nothing I can do about it. After all, it’s a free country, and God has given everyone free will, no matter how stupid their decisions are. SIGH. I deep down I think I am afraid that my kids will one day meet one of the stupid people in the world and it will mess up their lives… but there is nothing I can do about that either. I just have to do the best I can as a parent and a person, and stop stressing about other people’s choices. I can’t live anybody else’s life for them. SO stop getting stressed about stuff that’s beyond your control already!!
