I’ve discovered a character flaw in myself. I’m not perfect after all. Surprising, I know. What is this flaw, you ask?
I don’t like it when I don’t get my own way.
How can I deal with this? I see three options.
Always make sure I get my own way. Sadly, I’m not sure how to make this happen. I’ve been trying all my life and it’s not working.
Never get my own way so I eventually get used to it. Nope. That sucks.
When I don’t get my own way give myself a treat like my favourite chocolate or a trip to the op-shop as compensation. This could very well work. I will try it next time.

Or chocolate mint ice cream! That works for me!
Mmm, that could work. I love choc-mint, as long as it’s dairy-free!
When you can’t change something, change your attitude, goes the cliche 🙂
#1 and #2 are extremes. And extremes suck extremely.
#3 and the ability to judge what is not #1 and #2 is a good skill which I am sure you have 🙂
Some things are worth fighting for though, don’t you think? If the first anti-slave campaigners gave up with the first road-block they came to slavery might still be acceptable today.
Sometimes I manage to convince myself that whatever happened was actually what I wanted the whole time.
Other times, I punch a pillow.
