It can be hard to pull myself together

Sometimes I find it really exhausting to pull myself together, not yell at the other people and just run away. Because they drive me crazy sometimes.

When they think they know better, even though they don’t.

When they can’t concentrate for a moment on the thing that actually needs to be done.

When they suck up to superior people in a sneaky way.

When they have no respect.

When they think they have to control everything at all times.

When they just show me straight away that they don’t like me.

Of course, it is not always possible to get along with everyone and it is not always possible to be on the same wavelength, but some things can be a nerve-wracking experience. Especially at a point where there is not the highest motivation.

What I wish for is more mutual respect, the recognition of limitations and self-discipline. Sometimes I just need my area and I can’t bear it when someone thinks they have to get on my nerves all the time. I need some freedom. And I don’t want to waste my time unnecessarily.
