Sometimes, when life beats you up, the best thing to do isn’t to throw punches, especially if you’re swinging at air. Rather, when I feel like the world owes me an apology, I try to stop whining, dust myself off and do something nice for someone else: half because I don’t want them to feel as rotten as I do and half because it prevents me from being so self-centered.
And, sometimes the whole ‘do onto others’ idea surprises you, as someone treats you exactly how you want to be treated, with kindness and care when you feel lonely & unappreciated. This may or may not have taken the form of a heavenly slice of sweet potato pie from a very wonderful coworker this past week :]
