I am irritable today w/ some co-workers over things that I’m normally able to tune out/ignore and sometimes even laugh at or take delight in. For one, just somebody’s cackly laugh is grating and another is really venting and carrying on about a problem w/ her kid and some other students that are causing problems at school. And then gramma cooing and baby-talking to her 2yo granddaughter over the phone. What is my deal today?
Pet peave - people saying ‘Oh my God!’ in exasperation. Just want to offer up a ‘Father, forgive’ them each time I hear it, like, every five minutes! I know, I know, not everybody is aware of this, nor do they share my convictions - lighten up JLC!
Yes, I’m pregnant, and true, maybe hormones are playing a small role, but I don’t try to write it off just to that alone. I read today’s mass readings online and they really hit a nerve to ‘bear one another in love.’ Hello! Would that not be a total act of mortification for me today! For now, just sticking my earphones in and tuning out to some L’Angelus and my work.
Can anybody offer some insight into the spiritual implications into this attitude? Thanks so much.
