Okay, now i know you have read the title and thought ‘what on earth is this crazy woman on?!’ but have you ever been driving down the street and someone has been in the wrong and almost swerved into you but instead of you getting mad they got mad? Or has anyone ever taken their frustration out on you for no apparent reason? If you answered yes to either of these questions you will see what i mean about learning to be a balloon in this post.
Balloons can hold a lot of air but as you know, but too much and it will explode. This is exactly like people.
We need to understand even though you may have not done anything wrong some people need to let some air out before they explode. We need to take this on the chin and forget about it. The easiest way to move on and avoid conflict is by ignoring it and realising they don’t mean anything personally they are just letting their frustration out on you.
You never know they may have woken up with a throbbing headache, a loved one may have just passed or they may have lost their job. Im sure you would react the exact same way by letting your frustration out on people, i know i have. That is why i have come to realise to take a step back and know that its not personal and if it is, so what? Its not the worst thing that can happen in your life.
We need to become the balloons that can slowly release air to avoid exploding. Live your life care free and start taking other peoples frustration and throwing it away. You don’t need it and it will only make you frustrated, all you need to do is smile and understand.
