If you are having a bad day, get another one and get it quick! –Rissie Harris
When you’re having a bad day, do you take it out on others?
I’m sure we’ve all had days where we wake up feeling grumpy and the day gets progressively worse. Or the day started out great until we got to work — and it was downhill after that. Whenever I feel irritable (which is rare for me), or like I’m having a “not so good day,” I like to keep to myself and talk to others as little as possible. Why? Because I don’t want to take things out on others. After all, that person is innocent. They have nothing to do with my mood, or my having a “bad day.” It’s unfair for me to take things out on them. We all know what it feels like when someone takes their feelings out on us — not good! I don’t wish it on others. Here’s something I remind myself of whenever I’m having a bad day:
“If you are having a bad day, it is a personal problem the world does not have to deal with. If you get up on the wrong side of the bed, it is no one’s fault but your own. If it is that time of the week, month or year for you, what would you have the world do? It is never an excuse for being rude, cruel or abusive to anyone, to simply say, “I’m having a bad day.” It is not appropriate to scream, swear, lash out or do things that have no place among civilized people because “you have something else on your mind.” We cannot abuse or tramatize others because we are facing a challenge. LIFE IS A CHALLENGE!……Tradition tells us that it does not matter what difficulties we face. Our worth is measured by how we face those difficulties. If we are to grow and reach our fullest potential, we have no time to waste on bad days.” –Iyanla Vanzant
