Why? I ask myself. I had a good time with good people. Why am I letting this one small thing even enter my radar? It's a good question. One I don't have an answer to. In fact, I believed if I told this person how I felt, I could forget it, let it go. So, what's the deal?
I wonder if people are just wired to remember slights and other such annoyances. To focus on the tiny glitch in a perfectly, lovely evening. In fact the only reason I'm writing about it, is because I'm fascinated by this phenomena.
It's certainly not an act of my will that solves the problem. Intellectually, I can rationalize it. In my heart, I know this person meant absolutely no harm. So?
Sorry, I am not going to share any pearls of wisdom here. Maybe down the road, I'll find a way to quiet my brain from the nagging. Meditation maybe. Writing it down, I think, is helping.
As I've said before, and haven't forgotten; if I have a problem today, it's definitely me. Acceptance is the answer to all my problems. Fantasizing the freedom to let go of ridiculous resentment and enjoy the rest of my weekend.
