We have a ‘one saying a day’ calendar at school that for the most part has been very uplifting. It’s about not sweating the small stuff, but sometimes the sayings feel a lot like daggers to my heart.
For instance, the past couple of weeks and the upcoming week are all about not interrupting people, talking over them, or always turning the topic of conversation back to yourself. They hurt, because this is exactly what I do on a daily basis. They really are hammering this point home. Whoever wrote this calendar is trying to send me a message.
Are you kidding, calendar?
Arrrrrhhhhh! This calendar is attacking me!
Why does everything always happen to me?
