I know it’s easier said than done, but please try not to take things personally. Sometimes life happens. Your friend might be sad because her dog is sick, the lady at the store might be rude because she had to work a double shift and had trouble getting a sitter for her kids.
We don’t know what people are going through. In a perfect world no one would ever be rude to you, they wouldn’t cut you off in traffic and they wouldn’t frown all the time. But we don’t know their story, do we? So take a moment and pray for the person who is rude to you.
It’s very freeing when you decide to not take things personally. Take a deep breath and thank God for your blessings.
