Fairy tales and many fiction books always end with “happily ever after”. Unfortunately this is not true in real life. Life is in fact full of both good and bad times and you can only hope that you have more good than bad.
We are living during historically, unprecedented times. For many people, they are finding that life is highly stressful. As bad as it may seem, try to remember that it will get better. All the lock down restrictions will eventually be lifted and life can hopefully return to a new kind of normal.
Life in general can bring you in contact with people being both nice and not so nice to you. During periods of great stress, such as the lock downs, people’s attitudes and behaviours appear to be amplified. I have seen strangers help one another and on the flip side people being rude and aggressive.
I was talking to a friend recently and she was complaining about how people were behaving in the supermarket. As we talked, we came to the conclusion that while there were some rude people, the majority of people seemed to be fine. In life whether, it is at work, in your extended family or even amongst your circle of friends, you will see a balance of good and bad behaviours. You will never be surrounded by totally kind and considerate people, nor will you be surrounded by totally nasty and rude individuals. In life there is always a balance of good and bad.
The next time you are in the supermarket and that person pushes in front of you or that customer is rude to you at work, just shrug it off and try not to let it bother you too much. They are nothing compared to all the good and kind people out there.
