Taking Offence: MARINGAL's "Shush"!
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
Although I often post links to newspaper articles, truly some of the best reading out there is presented here at Spark.
Take a look at MARINGAL's great blog, "Shush". She writes about that horrible phenomenon familiar to so many of us when a random comment from a friend (or frenemy) has us writhing in anguish and ruminating all day long. Or maybe for several days.
And she's decided: when this happens, she will simply quiet herself. Say "Shush" to herself. And stop it.
Good idea! We know this is exactly the kind of internal stress which can lead to stress eating, right? Take a read and the comments are terrific too . . . life's too short to permit this kind of distraction, and if somebody wants to offend me (rare rare rare) they're gonna have to be absolutely unequivocal and upfront and clear about it. And I'll probably respond with giggles and snorts rather than outrage!! Outrageous giggles and snorts, possibly!!
