Every morning, my mom is late for work.
And every morning, I’m constantly warning her that she should get ready earlier.
Do my words ever change anything?
Of course not!
But for whatever reason, I get wound up each morning and continue to spew my cautionary words.
Why do I do that to myself?
No matter what I say, she won’t change herself. Although I mean well, I think I only achieve in annoying myself and my mother more. My breath is wasted on her!
Sometimes you have to realize the things you can’t change, and keep your mouth shut.
