Has anyone ever asked you a stupid, silly, or insensitive question?
Let me rephrase that:
Has anyone ever asked you a question that SEEMED stupid, silly, or insensitive?
What did you do?
Did you answer them, get angry, ignore them?
Here is something I’ve learned as a result of being asked all sorts of questions:
If someone asks a question, no matter how absurd or inappropriate it may appear to YOU, it’s probably because their question makes sense to THEM.
It’s highly unlikely that you are so important to them that they asked you a question with the intention of annoying or alienating you.
So, don’t ruin your day over it.
Getting angry at people for asking questions you would never ask is a waste of precious emotional energy that you will definitely need in the future for far more important things.
Let THEM ask the questions that resonate with THEM and let YOUR happiness center around the thoughts that resonate with YOU.
That’s my two cents.
