Good day, beautiful people.
I feel frustrated by people lately, by the unkindness of others and in return the unkindness of myself dealing with those people through my agitations.

Basically, people can be difficult to deal with. Sometimes I wonder why people all too obviously put themselves on a pedestal and try to keep others below them in some way. Driven by a false sense of status.
Many people place themselves on a pedestal held high on top of their material status in life, position in their careers, material wealth, age. This is such an unhealthy way of being, not only does this way of superiority stop you from connecting with others of a basic human level of kindness but it also feeds feelings of judgement and negativity towards others and in return within yourself.
Often people who create a status of superiority from material or social standings tend to be very critical of others but that criticism comes back on them as well, as projection is present in judgement.
You have probably seen this occur if you have ever witnessed a waitress get verbally abused by a customer after there was a mistake in an order or a cashier after giving the wrong change, or any other form of public embarrassment that we have all been on the receiving end, giving end, or witnessing end.
What is it with human beings thinking they can speak to other human beings this way? How did we get so angry? So ignorant? So unkind?
Kindness is easy to manage when you are feeling good and the world is turning as it should. But when things are dark and depressing or when stress takes over it becomes harder and harder to maintain an attitude of kindness towards others and also towards yourself.
Keep that in mind when dealing with a difficult person, and also when your own mood becomes less than favourable.
Be kind, be patient.
