I wrote this last weekend before the tragedy in Las Vegas and I think it rings even truer now.
I was at the gym this weekend when I heard a guy scolding a woman for taking his yoga mat in the free weights area. She thought it was unoccupied because people often just leave the mats all over the floor and she apologized.
He began telling her to shut up and was just being extremely rude while she explained that it was unneccessary. She said that they are both humans so there is no need to get angry over a mistake. He kept being rude, then she called him an asshole – and I don’t blame her lol.
The whole thing just made me wonder why you would waste your energy getting angry over something so little when there are so many huge problems in the world.
And there is so much hate in the world. To spread it even further over someone taking your mat at the gym is laughable. Why keep spreading the opposite of what the world needs?
Choose to ignore the little things. Accept apologies. Be kind.
