Life is pretty irritating. The significant other is irritating. The children are irritating. Work is irritating. The cars and cyclers on the road are irritating. Deciding to find time to make dinner (which goes with deciding on what to make) otherwise deciding to spend money to eat out: irritating. How the body feels is irritating. The state of the world: forget about it.
There’s only so much (dark) chocolate one can eat to soothe an irritation.
So, how do you deal with life’s irritations? Is what you do for it a momentary fix, or does it build on you to find a different way to be?
Can these irritations reflect back to you what you need to see in order to grow into a better version of yourself while at the same time examine and love what you are today?
That which irritates you offers you good information on where or how you may not be taking care of yourself. They offer up a worthy challenge to practice proper self-care and self-advocacy, which sets the healthy boundaries necessary to create enough space for what you need to do for yourself and to encourage a more loving and respectful back-and-forth between you and everyone else.
Dig deep. Irritations are a two way street. People and things irritate, and in so doing, they hold up a mirror to take a closer look, giving you a gift opportunity to find what you’ve been holding back from yourself.
