So, we all have annoyances. Mine have been coming out all over the place lately. Go figure, it's at a period in my life where I'm trying to become a better, more positive person. Hopefully letting them all out right here, right now will be a good way for me to release the negativity and move on.
One of the most prominent things bugging me lately are my parents. I'm sure that will sound just horrible to a lot of people, but it is true. I don't hate them, and we generally get along, but lately it's been a struggle. They both have a tendency to do thing that I cannot stand. For instance, I'm sort of OCD about my bed. I change and wash my sheets every couple of days, change my pillowcases every day. I just NEED a clean bed. Then my mom lets all the dogs in (we have 5) and the three big, dirty, hairy, shedding dogs jump on my bed. There were literally chunks of dog hair on my bed. Things like that get to me. While it may seem petty to most, it's just a peeve. I have endless examples, but this would end up being an incredibly long blog, so I'll spare you.
People that get in my business. I am very, very picky about who I let into all of the things going on in my life. In fact, there are about three people I can do that with. They're all people I know will support me. They can somehow keep an unbiased view on anything I tell them, and love me regardless of the decisions I make. I guess where I'm going with this is, I made an attempt to let another person into that little circle of complete trust. I have found though, that they aren't like the other three people. They won't talk to me about something they don't agree with. Just get mad and say we should change the subject. This person also doesn't make much effort to hide disdain for a special person in my life. I love my friends, and for the reason that they can accept my beliefs and decisions. I shouldn't have to avoid certain topics of discussion with a friend. This is when I distance myself from them. When they continue to get in my business is where my annoyances kick in. Take the hint that I don't want to talk about it and leave me alone! Please :)
Yes, there's another thing that has been bothering me lately. This is going to be incredibly vague, so if I were you I'd just skip to the next paragraph. I just need to get this out. I've witnessed how hard it is for someone to share with another person, something they believe. Especially if this something they believe is basically anything BUT Christianity. The fact of the matter is, not everyone believes the same things. We all have the power to think for ourselves, though we can accept guidance from God. If we listen. Some people choose to do so, some choose to rely solely on 'facts'. I'm going off on a tangent. My point is that everyone should be respected for their beliefs. No one should be shot down or torn apart. Believe what you believe, let everyone else believe what they want to believe. There's a difference between trying to show someone your religion, and trying to completely deface theirs.
Lastly, little things have been bothering me. People who tell me how to do my job differently. My own indecision. Living so far away from my boyfriend. The Chargers sucking.
Ok, so on a slightly positive note, I feel a lot better now that these things are off my mind. Staying positive isn't always easy, but it's necessary. Otherwise I'll turn into some bitter hag, and nobody likes that! I can be mad for a little but it's always important to keep moving forward. I don't believe there is a single thing to gain from focusing on the negative aspects of your life.
