mindsetIn my being asked to be understanding

For other people’s foibles, time frames

Cares and concerns

Needs and desires

And how they work

I’m also asking to be understood

That much of my stress, anxiety and more

Depends on how the other person completes their task

Or follows through on what they say

Or steps up, as they’ve said they would, time and again

And doesn’t

And leaves me dangling in the wind

Leaves me wondering what, if anything, went wrong

Causing a festering that, in my furrowed mind,

Allows me to wander into negative territory.

All I ask is that I get the same respect

When asked for something in a timely, courteous manner

And I ask myself to understand that that is not always going to happen

And to figure out how to deal with it


Turning to God and prayer, as I have been exposing myself to,

I ask for these things. Patience, coping, and a way to release the tensions.

  1. Read another blog the other day by someone going through a horrendous tax issue. After talking to several people, she finally got someone who couldn’t help either – but was actually NICE, which caused her to burst into tears of gratitude. it shouldn’t be that way, but sadly it is – too many people (especially in power) can’t be bothered with courtesy, understanding or compassion.
