|WELCOME TO MONDAY MORNING COFFEE WITH EMMA ....BE EASY TO GET ALONG WITH.
"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success"
Most of us probably wish people, in general, were easier to get along with, but have we considered how we ourselves score in that area? For example, how do you respond when you don't get your way? Do you get your feelings hurt easily? Are you insecure and need a lot of attention to feel good about yourself? How do you handle correction? Are you adaptable? Do you have a very specific way you want things done, and if they are not done that way, do you let everyone know you are not happy?
Wanting everyone else to change so that you can be happy IS THE PROBLEM. If you are hard to please and easy to offend, wanting your way and not acting nice when you don't get it can complicate your life. Spending time upset will make it impossible to enjoy a simple life.
The first thing we need to do is admit that we are hard to get along with; it can be the beginning of a whole new world. Learn to adapt rather than demand your own way, avoid the arguments in order to get your way. If people are doing their best, compliment them instead of finding the one thing they did not do according to your specifications. Stop correcting them about what they are doing wrong.
Learn to just let go, most things won't really make and difference in the overall outcome.
With each petty thing you give up, your life can become on e step simpler.
The most important thing is to start by admitting the truth, perhaps , of all the ways you have been hard to get along with. Remember, only the truth will make you free
