As a mediaman, I have to deal with different kinds of nerve-wrecking personalities - a persistent collage of spit-spraying egocentrics. Sometimes, I feel like cutting their heads off or dicing their faces or stabbing their owl-eyes or burning their souls for damned hell's fury. But - whew! - why should I do those things? I do not want to be a brass spittoon that eats and absorbs their stinky personalities. How, then, do I manage my anger on them? Simple, I picture and treat them as babies. Every time they start emptying my self-esteem with their motor-mouths, I also commence imagining their faces when they are still babies – lovely, cute newborns just learning to mumble; needing care and attention from their proud moms and dads. Well, it is truly hard to conjure up the baby faces of these present social feces. Imagine trying to view a crocodile politician as an angelic tot or a bloating businessman as a meek toddler or a vicious authority as a kindly kid or a garrulous neighbor as a bashful child – truly energy draining. But the antidote to the stress is the beating of a parent's heart – the instrument of affection, forgiveness and rational tolerance. For a father or a mother would still care for a life that even the world itself despises. Thus, as I view these unbearable beings as cuddly babies, I try to exude the God-given gifts to parents: love, understanding and extraordinary patience. Then - in an instant - these filthy, nerve-wrecking personalities turn into glowing drive and inspiration to live on, go on and move on. Tweet
