Poem: Little bit of dissatisfaction

2013-09-17 Sunset - Dissatisfied

A lover’s
Persistent
Little bit of unhappiness
Little bit of dissatisfaction
Is a tiring
Heavy burden
For the long haul

A lover’s
Persistent
Little bit of cheeriness
Little bit of gratitude
Is an inspiring
Set of wings
For every dream

About the poem:
We all know to avoid becoming friends with someone who punches us in the face when we say hello. What we don’t often realize though is how by being sensitive to someone’s temperament, we can learn a lot. Someone who is generally a little bit dissatisfied with everything, is likely to feel that way about themselves and about you too. On the other hand, someone who is generally a little bit happy about whatever is happening today, likely feels that way about themselves and about you too.

This seems like a minor point, the difference between slightly unhappy and slightly cheery, but can make all the difference, especially in close relationships at work or home.

Homework: ask someone ten times: How are you?
Graph the results (okay, you don’t really have to graph them!) Is there a trend?
