Today was one of revelations and growth.
I was having a conversation with coworkers. They were remarking how my sister told them to be careful of me. I was extremely mean, I could be full of attitude and rude.
I smirked. “Oh really?”
“You are the nicest person I’ve met. You havent yelled at me once. You are really kind.”
Their praise warmed my heart.
“Your sister warned about you, but she is the one who is very mean. She is rude and she doesnt like to be helped at all.”
I was bewildered. I thought at first, it was a prank. They were pulling my leg.
Usually everyone loves my sister. They get along great with her. They become best friends. People usually feel the opposite about me. They dont get along with me, they dont like my attitude. They find me too blunt.
However I realized she wasnt kidding.
I smiled. “I will tell you something, I used to be really shy when I first started working here. People took advantage of that. I just got tired of being stepped on. I was becoming mean. I realized I cant do that anymore. I wanted to be happy.I had to be kind to others.”
Granted, some people do still find me mean, but I am so happy that for once people are seeing that I do not start the fights my sister and I get into.
That they see I do try to be kind and patient.
Today made me see how far I have come! :)
It was a really good day ♥
