It was one of those days. You know, when things just don’t seem to be going right. I don’t mean that everything was going wrong, really. Physical things actually went pretty smoothly. It was my interactions with humans that took a turn for the worse that day.
I’m not really sure what happened, but it happened all, day, long. Every time I talked to someone, the conversation became intense . . . in person, in texts and on social media.
It started at my doctor’s office. I saw my usual physician to discuss a health issue from my past that recently reoccurred. Now, I’ve always liked this doctor. We have a good rapport, or at least I thought we did. I was explaining to her the history of this problem from before I started seeing her, and she snapped at me. I guess she didn’t want to know the entire history. She just wanted to know the present symptoms. Should I not have gone there?
Then, I wrote a comment on my facebook page. Nothing to do with politics whatsoever. Just a comment about a neighbor of mine. Umm, completely was taken out of context. Did I write it wrong?
There were a couple other minor incidents with people (in my life) who I contacted by phone or by text.
Later that day, I replied to a tweet, and that went sour, too. After all the other mishaps, I should’ve known better not to engage.
I confess when I say, I took it personally. Please don’t misunderstand. I’m not looking for sympathy. This is one of my introspective posts. I believe in being self-aware about situations. So, since there was so much going wrong that day, I couldn’t help but think it was me.
I think many people go through times when they feel unloved. To me, much of society appears to feel unloved these days, vocalizing for the world to hear how they feel mistreated, cheated and victimized. I understand that kind of hurt. At the same time, being an introspective person, I always look to myself to see where I could be contributing to any issues that occurred. Is there something I could do better? Should I merely remain aware when dealing with certain people and not internalize? When we look to outside sources for acceptance and love, we have to realize it won’t always happen.
I’m not someone who relies on astrology in any way. That day when all of my conversations went sour, I joked with my husband that I should’ve checked my horoscope before I started my day. The next morning, just for kicks, I decided to go back and check that bad day’s horoscope.
Hmm. Maybe I should check ahead more often. 😉
Ever have one of those days when somehow communication with other humans just doesn’t seem to go well?
