Get Over It

I have to say this to myself constantly. As I've become more aware of myself, I have learned that I have high expectations for myself and therefore, of others. This can be a good thing, of course and it's not hard to tell how. But the negative side is that I can be annoyed so easily by the most menial of things that either I do or others do - at work, driving, etc. It's usually silly stuff - so silly that I'm not even going to give an example, but it is so much of a natural, programmed response in me that I have to sometimes stop myself, assess how important this really is and occasionally say to myself, "get over it." I have to give people a break - and myself too. So, I continue to work on this and also to discern when my expectations are reasonable.
