We are Adults?


Why is it so hard for us to get along sometimes. Why do we let the little things that happen to us become bigger, and bigger issues. The perverbial pebble into snowball theory. We just can't seem to let things go.

You would think that most of us would figure it out. Life is too short, and You never know when You might need that person(s) that You just got mad at. Makes Me wonder. We are adults right. We should act like that. Not like babling teenagers, that have no life experience or clue.

Can't we just step back, say oh well, and move on. Holding grudges solves nothing either. Maybe one day we will figure this all out.



Thought for the day:

Treat your fellow man as You wish to be treated. Therefore You will have as pleasant experience as they did.

"Why is it so hard for us to get along sometimes."

.Self-Centeredness

"Why do we let the little things that happen to us become bigger, and bigger issues. The perverbial pebble into snowball theory. We just can't seem to let things go."

Some people have to be right even when they are wrong.

"You would think that most of us would figure it out."

To the contrary, it amazes me when I meet someone who has.

"Life is too short, and You never know when You might need that person(s) that You just got mad at."

Agreed, Life is too short. They figure out when they need the person(s), unfortunately it is already too late

"Makes Me wonder."

Keep thinking, it's healthy

"We are adults right."

Depends on who "We" are

"We should act like that."

Those who are adults act like it, unfortunately there are many Adult Children out there.

"Not like babling teenagers, that have no life experience or clue."

I have met some intelligent teenagers with experience beyond their years, but your point...there are alot of babling teens!

"Can't we just step back, say oh well, and move on."

probably not until "we've" hurt enough.

"Holding grudges solves nothing either."

It solves me having to worry about whether we are friends or not..

"Maybe one day we will figure this all out."

You seem optimistic. I just hang out with those who have.

"Thought for the day:

Treat your fellow man as You wish to be treated. Therefore You will have as pleasant experience as they did"

Definately words of wisdom, had fun reading your blog. Have a great day!

As usual here I come with a different view...

"Treat your fellow man as You wish to be treated. Therefore You will have as pleasant experience as they did."

The exception might be if you want others to treat you badly... it's not fair to treat someone in a foul manner just because you wish them to treat you that way.

Then again perhaps that's why we do treat others badly, because we don't think we are completely worthy of their full attention.

Just a thought that crossed my mind, but definitely something to ponder .......
