Bad days. You know what I’m talking about.
On bad days, everything goes wrong. Everyone is in your way; they’re out to foil your plans. You get in a rut and can’t get out.
And maybe they did get in your way, maybe they did foil your plans. It’s not an illusion. It’s a possibility that they really do suck and you deserve better.
But, for some reason, knowing this doesn’t seem to help.
So if you’re looking to feel lighter, here’s a little brain trick:
Replay your interaction with them in your head, as it occurred but this time, at the very end, offer your forgiveness — a nod, a wave, a smile — and watch what happens.
Their reaction — out of their control and completely in yours — is the medicine you need to move on.
