Joy suckers – what they do
Ever had something or someone come around and steal your joy? You know, you are having a pleasant day and then someone rear-ends you at an intersection! Or, your significant other calls and says it is over! It can really throw you into a tailspin. Those people are sometimes called “joy suckers” – they suck the joy from our lives.
We have all faced such situations. How did you respond? Today on Facebook, someone posted what they felt was the proper response: a picture quote that read, “Walk away from anything or anyone who takes away from your joy. Life is too short to put up with fools.” I don’t know the original source of that quote (Google has over 5 million different links to it.) It is generally used anonymously.
Is that a good plan for dealing with hardships? Inquiring minds want to know.
