So I think I learned something tonight. Thinking back through relationships and what not I realize that I have some good friends. I could have more good friends but I wasn't committed enough to keep working on the relationship.

What brought this on?

Basically I'm running into the frustration point where I'm having trouble letting go of my hurt and anger. Life isn't fair, and the best way to deal with it is not to drag all the crap that went wrong with you.

It all boils down to this you can either give justice or give forgiveness. It's being able to let the hurt go and move on. The thing is i don't like what I've become where I use to be happy and encouraging and what not, I'm cynical and critical.

There's this person I have to work with...whom frustrates me to no end. I actually get angry because they make really freshman mistakes...(they're old enough not to be making those mistakes).

So in an attempt to reach this person (I refuse to do what was done to me when I was screwing things up at work when I was green), I've been trying to figure out the best way to help them without being critical. Positive encouragement...not the fake, lets be friends touchy feely kind. But being honest and pointing out things that have been done well.

The ironic thing is I really want this person to do well, but at the same time I'm having trouble reigning in the negativity.

I want to be become a more positive and encouraging person.

That's pretty much all I have to say.
