A lesson in adulting

Dear Universe,

Thank you for the gentle reminder today to be a bigger person, and not stoop to a negative person’s level. Their perception of me is not reality, and how they treat me is not a reflection of me. It’s who they are. In the end, we all seek a meaningful connection, to be heard and understood.

I did not turn away while my inner child sought them. I kept myself turned to them, and did not resort to a childish tantrum, despite the temptation to fire back with a snide comment, and despite them being confrontational with their words.

Here’s to adulting, accomplished in baby steps, on a daily basis.
