So today I have taken up Scott Dinsmore's “Start a Blog Writing Challenge.” He doesn't mind if those who have already got one join in. But as this is a coaching blog, I'll of course tie it to being a better human.
So what makes me angry about the world is always a function of how people relate to the world and each other. I've one specific case in mind which affects me personally and is particularly relevant at this time of the Jewish New Year. In this case someone had a beef with something I do (if you must know, it's that I like to run around barefooted; I figure if I have to see every other Israeli's rotten feet in pieces of rubber strapped to their feet, what's the big dif if I don't bother at all).
Well apparently the big dif is that my unshod feet offend someone. But that person didn't tell me. He told someone else, with instructions that affect me. But that person didn't tell me either. He told someone else to tell me.
Now I am not one to get violent, and when I am upset, I usually just end up muttering about how stupid I think something is (or someone is), and maybe I go vent by writing another blog post; so I don't get why these two couldn't just come and talk to me.
So what's been pissing me off is that people have no balls, and now I'm the one holding a grudge; so now I need to step up and ask these people who have been pissing me off for forgiveness because I am angry and frustrated with them for not being straight with me.
And as a coach, I want to find some pithy lesson in this to share with you, and I just can't find it. “Don't be angry?” Well, I am angry, but I guess I should just share it and maybe something will be resolved, and maybe not, but with any luck, I'll be able to let it go.
