Dealing With Freight Trains

Whenever people cross our paths, there is always a message for us. Chance encounters do not exist.

~ James Redfield, Celestine Prophecy, 1993

Have you ever met someone who just made you want to run in the opposite direction? Did you wonder to yourself, “why is this person in my life?” We all have people and personalities who are challenges, who make us work very hard to be civil, and/or who are not supportive of us. I call these folks “freight trains”….as they can run right over you, given half a chance. If everyone was exactly like us and liked us, wouldn’t life be boring? We would never learn anything about people skills. These folks are not going to go away. Embrace the opportunity to learn how to deal with them.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: When such a person comes into your life, look up to the heavens and pray “thank you, God for giving me a chance to work at being especially loving  and kind to this person.”

Note: Please comment below and let me know how this works for you.
