One of the most challenging aspects of my work supporting children in education can be the adults, the faculty and staff. Children are much easier to be around than a group of adults who bring their own issues and opinions to the table. Some adults are much more professional and evolved than others.
Exhale. I’ve been trying to find a coping mechanism this morning to help me let go of a recent, particularly bad day. Thing is, is that the events of the day will happen again because of certain personalities within the team. Some days I can let it slide, other days it just grates at me like nails down a chalkboard.
I guess the question here is what lesson is life trying to teach me?
I think two:
- I have a voice. I can use it to assert myself when something uncomfortable happens. This makes me more uncomfortable because I truly do hate any kind of difficult conversation in the workplace. Depending on the person, the fallout can have more damage than the attempt to heal it.
- How important is it? How important is it that I feel I have to be right?
Solution – Look at the source of who is causing me this workplace stress. Observe and look with kind eyes. Kind eyes. Kindness.
Today’s Life Lesson Solution:
Look with kind eyes
If I can’t be right – be kind
Just for today, I will be kind. My lenses will be kind. I will let compassion and patience flow through me.
