In the past I might have been guilty of 'collecting' the small hurts, both intentional & unintentional, and picking at the 'scabs'...both physical and emotional. Not allowing them to heal cleanly.
I'm going to stop. I'm not going to sweat the small stuff. I am not going to allow myself to get bogged down. If the person doesn't realize what they are missing, well then it is their loss :)
If they do and continue, they were never worth it to begin with, so I needn't spend too much time on them.
Progress or getting jaded?
