There are gems in every little petty hassle we experience. It can be challenging to find them sometimes, but they are always there. They can teach us about ourselves when we take the time to look at them.
Let’s say someone is asking a lot of us already and then asks for one more thing. We feel like snapping at them, but instead if we take a deep breath and look at it in a different way – we can learn a lot. We can learn that maybe we are not so great at saying no. We can learn that sometimes we let things build up instead of dealing with it as it comes.
When we stop looking at their behavior and look at our own – that’s where the real big gems are.
The next time you feel hassled, stop and look for the gems. When you find the gems, you can make real change.
