Today in the Grocery store I had a Cyst pop. This means I am bent over and about ready to pass out from the pain. I had to stop and grab the frozen food door handle to steady myself while I took relaxing deep breaths. A couple came up to me and I guess I must have been in the way. I was trying to not pass out and they start giving me dirty looks like I am keeping them from the frozen vegetables purposely. They had no idea what was going on with me and could have cared less. I was in between them and the frozen peas. How dare I do that to them? At no time did they ask me to move, they just reached around me, they didn't ask how I was, they didn't care.
What is so exciting about Frozen Peas that you need to be that rude to someone in pain? While I will be the first to admit that I am not always the most thoughtful person, I don't try to go out of my way to be cruel to anyone.
While having a cyst burst is not something that happens to most people, it is a pain like being stabbed from the inside. It comes on fast and often with no warning. Not only that, but the pain can linger for a while before finally easing off. Just because I wasn't bleeding didn't mean that nothing was wrong.
I ask that you take a second and make sure that you are not being needlessly cruel to others. While you may not understand what they are going through, I cost them nothing but a few seconds. There was no reason for the dirty looks and the attitude. I didn't even care if they reached around me. I simply couldn't move at that time. So just take a few minutes and think about others before you decide what is wrong.
I would like each and every reader to be kind to others if only for three days. See how much of a difference it can make in your life and the lives of others around you. That is my challenge to you for this weekend. Please let me know how it goes.
