Before I made that promise to myself that I should learn to walk hand-in-hand with patience and try to be more understanding with total strangers around you, I had this big issue with people who would stare at you as you walk by them while minding your own business.. and oftentimes there are those who would stare at you much longer than expected and I was like “what the hell is your problem?” or “are you trying to pick a fight or something?”
I admit that I am short-tempered and it’s not, in any way, a good thing. Getting to encounter these type of individuals relatively spoiled my day and I said to myself that I should not let these people nor this type of situations get the best of me. I always had to bear in mind that maybe these people had a rough day at home or at work or maybe they’re going through something worse than I expected like money, family, relationship or personal problems. This had somehow helped me lessen that burden of getting all ballistic and irked big time, and gradually I learned to apply this technique everyday as I go out into the world and when I cross paths with these people, they can now stare at me for as long as they want like I couldn’t care less. Positive vibes, everyone.
