Ditch That Chip!
Put yourself in Check- It’s Time to Ditch That Chip on Your Shoulder!
Excuse me for a quick minute, but I have to get this off of my chest!
Ok I get it! You’ve been through a lot, in fact you may still be going through it! You may be struggling at work, losing steam in your relationship, suffering with loss or illness, having a hard time financially, the list goes on!
However, when did it become ok to take it out on the world? In the past week I have seen multiple people who are stressed or in a low period in their life be completely rude and disrespectful to other people.
That is not ok! Struggles in your life do not constitute entitlement to say and do whatever you want to others. Yes, times can be difficult, yes life is not always the easiest, but no you don’t get to take it out on others and then give us a hundred reasons why you are stressed. You are not the only one who is fighting the ups and downs of life.
This is just friendly reminder for both you and I that kindness heals everything! Even in dark times, leading with a kind heart will only guide you in the right direction and increase the positivity and love around you (which is what you need in times of stress)! If you really feel bogged down or need support then simply ask and communicate. Instead of lashing out at others do the opposite. Let others know you’re feeling a little overwhelmed or stressed and that you may not be feeling like yourself!
Remember, people will stand by you no matter what as long as you are kind! So put yourself (and others if needed) in check and ditch that chip on your shoulder! You’re not the only one going through life!
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Philo
