2012-03-16 – Friday Whisper – Are they annoying?

Do you have annoying people in your life? I’m talking about friends, family members, spouses, siblings, kids, parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles…

With annoying I mean, they repeat the same subject over and over again, they arrange their rooms and houses in a way you find it unsuitable to live in, they talk, eat, drive, dress, cook in an annoying manner… they express their opinions, they get their nose in non-of-their-business matters… 

And you? You’re stuck with them! You keep talking about them, in their back, avoiding them, criticizing them or trying to change them to think or become like you!!!

Have you ever thought that maybe you get on their nerves too, but they love you too much to be annoyed or bothered…

Now, let’s take a step back: have you lost one of those members? Do you miss them? Don’t you find yourself remembering them especially with those annoying things, but with nostalgia? Wishing they would come back and being ready to endure them again? Thinking that those things are nothing compared to them not being here? You would laugh remembering their manners! In fact, those things will become the characteristics that made them unique, different from others, made them who they were…

So how about starting to find a way to accept the living ones as they are, enjoying their company while they are around, finding the positive side… you know, no matter how your relative gets on your nerves, you will get to a point where those moments are gone, where you don’t have anyone around to call “aunt” or “uncle” or “grandpa” or “cousin” anymore… There will be times where you will look among strangers for ones who look like them to bring those moments back and wish yours were still alive…

Emilio Estevez, an American actor and writer, said: “We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That’s what connects us–that we’re all broken, all beautifully imperfect.”

And Khalil Gibran, an Lebanese-American author, said: “The person you consider ignorant and insignificant is the one who came from God, that he might learn bliss from grief and knowledge from gloom.”

The day I decided to accept others with their imperfections, suddenly life became more fun!!!
