I was just thinking about life and my past and noticed a very significant change in my life.
I remember in high school I used to be angry. I was angry about everything. It didn't take much to throughly piss me off. It was so bad that I went to counseling to help me deal with it and find the causes. I have recently had some incidents occur that if I were still my high school self, I would have completely hit the roof.
My iPod got stolen out of my car. I was rather annoyed, but I never got mad about it. I was able to realize that in the grand scheme of things it really doesn't matter so I just express my frustration for a few minutes, then move on with life.
When I backed my car into the van and damaged the bumper I could have been super pissed because the van was parked all weird making it hard to see when i was backing out. But no, I just let it go. I'm not upset about it. I'll fix it someday, but really, it doesn't matter.
I'm glad my attitude has changed. I hated life as a teen. Life is better now.
