I always want to train myself to be more resilient. Growing up relatively privileged i don’t think I have ever taken any shit from anyone and there is never really bad obstacles, heartache or hardship happened in my life.
Therefore when encountering pain in the ass parents or rude people I notice my mood got affected longer than others.
After hearing Tim Ferriss talking about his “jar of awesomeness” I started the project myself. As goal oriented people we often celebrate results and forget appreciation and gratitudes.
I have a big empty coffee jar that I decorate it nicely. Everytime when something awesome happened you write a note and put it in (yesterday I print out a parents sweet text and put in)
My jar is always full very very quickly. These days I no longer affect by nasty people’s rudeness. I just laugh it off.
You are beneath me to affect my mood. Looks like you need to try harder baby.
