I work with a favor.. unsavory, I guess you could say, coworker. She's constantly belittling those around, and just being all kinds of negative. That really brings down my mood and makes me not enjoy going to work when I know I'm going to have to be around her. I guess there are people like this in every work place though, but you know there's a problem when everyone on your shift can't stand you.
I think there is a reason God is putting this woman in my life, and having me be around her. I know I'm not walking my walk like I really should because let's be honest: modern times makes it so very easy to stray from our Christian walk. Everything is so fast paced and we're such a "give me, give me" culture that it is hard to stray from the "norm".
Anyway, I think he's trying to teach me to look at everyone with a kinder heart. I think he wants me to, even though she's trifling and rude, try and just be nice to her. God knows I don't want to go out of my way for her, and hell, she probably won't even appreciate it, but all that doesn't matter. It doesn't matter how she takes my kindness, that's with her own struggles with God. I do pray for the Sacred Heart of Jesus AND Mary, so I feel like this is something he is really trying to make me take home.
I need to be a better person, in fact, we could all use a little more "bettering" (haha), but seriously, aren't we taught to love thy neighbour, as well as, treating others we want to be treated? I think we all need to step up to the plate and kind of just go out of our way to show a little bit of kindness and compassion to one another. So, let's start today, shall we?
