Snowbirds - By Chris Prickett

 

From the In&Out Archives 2013

 

I've had this writing gig for eight plus years now. Accounting for the occasional double issue, a sprinkling of missed deadlines, and a hissy-fit or three, I'm somewhere north of 300 columns that have made the cut. I don't pretend to be the second coming of Walt Whitman; I'll settle for mildly entertaining bathroom reading. There are a few memorable ones (my infamous bathtub 'centerfold' comes to mind), and definitely a handful of clunkers. I'm human, I have bad days. I've heard that's somewhat typical of humans. Will you please forgive me? Thank you!

Now that we're on a roll with the whole forgiveness thing, I say we run with it. First stop: Your neighbor. You know, the guy who parked his car in front of your house and got you a love letter from the HOA. It would be much less effort to just let it go then to continue the whole 'I don't see you' routine day after week after month. Talk about work!

There are a bazillion quotes on the subject of grudges and forgiveness. The one I like best is credited to Nelson Mandela- “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.” That burning in your gut everytime you see or think of that jerk-face next-door is just your very own stomach lining waving good bye. Is it all worth it? I think not.

Apologize, even if it's not your fault, and feel the tension just melt away. Tis the season of love thy neighbor but even if you can't go that far, at least cut out the evil stare already. You'll feel better, he'll feel better, and you'll both be a bit more pleasant around the people who'se feelings really matter.

Life is plenty stressful enough without piling on to your own darn self. And you don't know what the other guy is going through, but I can guarantee that it's something because we all have something. Don't be somebody else's 'something'.
