Am I the only one?

October 22, 2018

Ok so I'm just confused, am I the only one this happens to?
But these days I feel like I'm in a hurry most of the time.
My "slow down" time is when I exercise, pray or am doing paper
work for the store.
But when I'm out it's usually when I have 10 errands and 30 minutes
to accomplish all of them.
Inevitably, I'll run into someone older & our tempo seems to be
completely out of sync.
I don't mean this in a "I'm busy you're not" way
but it seems like they could stay & talk for hours.
This happens on the phone too. It drives me nuts.
Am I that impatient these days?
Will I be on the other side one of these days & have no awareness?
I try not to take offense to it, but sometimes I do.
How can you not pick up on someone else's body
language when they are in a hurry?
But maybe I too have a lack of awareness...
That this is maybe that persons one outing for the day.
That this is that persons one conversation of the day.
That they go home to an empty house instead of a house full of 
kids, neighbors & animals.
I truly struggle with this one as my innate reaction is impatience.
But somewhere deep down I'm trying to see if from the other side.
But man it's hard.
