We have all encountered this type of person
at some point of our daily lives.
I suppose if this describes you,
you will just grunt and move on
however you might learn something
so stick around!
Before I get into this
I will admit I am not immune to such grumpiness.
I too have had my moments
but my thing has always been
to never impose my ugliness
Guess that’s why I am talking about it.
I have met some interesting people,
some of whom
seem to feel it necessary
to ruin a happy person’s day.
Taking pleasure in being a stir stick
or creating misery
seems to be a mission of sorts
for many of these lost souls.
That fascinates me somewhat
and I have always wondered
where this would possibly come from
and even more so,
The interesting part I have found
is being pleasant and nice in return
in most cases
almost seems to encourage
even more creases onto their foreheads
and God forbid you say something
that addresses their unhappiness.
This one is a favorite of mine.
Now I totally get
stress and tension
or drama and circumstance
but it still doesn’t give anyone permission
for cruelty or aggression
(in my book anyway)
I always believed
that if you feel the need
to be angry inside,
don’t take it outside.
(unless you’re heading to your therapist of course)
I suppose it’s a hard thing to comprehend
when you seem to be content
within the boundaries of your own life.
I realize the world we live in
sure doesn’t make things easy,
and the struggles of some people
are more than most of us can even imagine,
so is there any solution?
Is it at all possible
to make unhappy people
From my own experience,
seeing that kind of transformation in some people
never comes to light.
They need to be where they are
for whatever reasons
and any or all attempts to be a hero
and change their behaviour
never really works anyway.
I guess it comes down to acceptance.
You either fall into the category or you don’t.
All I know is I always try
to change that in the people I meet
but I don’t take anything personal
or allow myself to think
that’s its my job to reform
or perform any miracles
when it looks like I can’t get through to them.
things don’t change
unless they want them to change.
So in closing,
you will encounter grumpy
or miserable people.
They do exist and some are hell-bent and determined
to crush the energy around you
or pull you into their own
tunnel of darkness.
tunnels make me claustrophobic
and more important of all…
I HATE THE DARK!
Make it a great day everybody
and yes even you grumpy ones 🙂
