Maybe It's Not Me

I can be so affected by other's actions toward me.

Some days, my mood, outlook and self-esteem are dictated by one person's comment.  I can be thrown off by someone's glare at a restaurant.  I can get upset when another driver makes rude gestures at me.

I'm learning though, that many times, their actions or words have nothing to do with me at all.  It is just them having a bad day.  Bad month.  Bad decade even!  They are having a hard time in life and I just happen to be the one that catches it.  They aren't being sensitive with their word choices, attitude, or voice inflections simply because of their own issues.

I probably don't have to take everything so personally.
