You emphasis personal responsibility. We can’t change others or make them act certain ways, but we can choose how we respond.
In my own life, I’ve discovered that when I’m easily annoyed with others it’s because I need to spend more time with God. It’s because there’s something in ME that needs addressed.
You gave me some things to chew on. A few things I’m guilty of. Thank you!

Had the chance to listen to this over lunch today. Great stuff.
One thing I would add though: I think it’s important for us to clarify our level of annoyance. It’s one thing for us to get a little irked that our spouse left their socks on the floor. It’s another thing if it’s ongoing and strong neglect.
In the case of the latter, I’ve heard it said that we need to understand if the annoyance is coming between us and fellowship with the other person. In that case, the obstacle needs to be removed. Sometimes that’s us getting over it. But many times it’s not. I think we need to give grace, but for some conflict-resistant people they may need to have the courage to communicate about what’s important to them.

Wow, Loren, I’m so glad you added that. I think you’re right. Often people will think, “Oh, I shouldn’t feel that way,” or they might just be afraid to bring it up when they really need to bring it up – not just for their sake but for the other person’s sake. Thanks for adding that.
