Today I’m grateful for minor gripes.
I’m not generally confessional but for once this seems the best forum. I’ve been dealing with a lot of resentment of late. I’m a serious person by nature and lean cynical. This really isn’t helping. The source is a very minor part of my life and I’ve let it grow disproportionately. The fact that I know I’m being an ungrateful turd doesn’t help me reach any resolution because I then feel guilty about having the thoughts in the first place.
I’ve got an engineer’s mind, so I’m trying to break it down and troubleshoot the issue. I don’t know if that’s appropriate terminology for emotions but it is accurate. It’s a tiny thing and will recess soon so I don’t even have time to gripe about it. I’m grateful that I recognize when I’m being silly and can do something about it.
