Silent Thoughts – Irritation and Graciousness

6 Aug 2008 | Wisdom |  11 comments


English Translation
When we are irritated by others,
it is actually because we are still lacking
in graciousness.

Original Mandarin Version

Deimos Analyzes – For Non-Bloggers
Say you are driving and a guy cuts into your lane, what do you do? Do you feel extremely irritated because of his inappropriate driving manners? Or do you feel relieved, as no automobile accident occurred as a result of that and you carry on driving happily?

Deimos Analyzes – For Bloggers
How do you feel when some bloggers leaves insincere comments on your posts? In some cases, it is quite obvious that the commentator did not did not fully read the post before leaving a comment. Would you dislike that particular blogger for such an action? Or you do not mind that at, appreciate that blogger’s comment, and would continue to network sincerely with such bloggers? How would you feel?

Amorphous+ is a flash game that caught the attention of many flash game players recently and Deimos is experiencing a search engine traffic spike as a result of this.

Deimos’s Thoughts
Deimos believes that if a person is very easily irritated, that person is at a disadvantage. Say at your work place, if you get irritated because of a particular colleague’s attitude, behavior, etc, how are you going to have a pleasant time at work? Can you concentrate? Can you perform well? Or will you be thinking about how irritating that particular colleague is instead?

Deimos Asks
Are you easily irritated? Do you think it is a good thing to be easily irritated?

    for “insincere comments”,
    i’ll first network with the blogger
    before i jump to any conclusion.
    but if it continues ..
    i’m gonna leave it aside, or more like .. ignore that person.

    Getting irritated is counterproductive. We only harm ourselves. The irritating factor has long gone off leaving us to stay irritated. The answer is to ignore these factors.

    I usually like to mind my own business, 😈
    and if things like this happened to me,
    I just do the best thing I always do, mind my own business 😆
    As for the insincere comment if the link is to a drugs/sex/casinos links, I delete the link and review what he/she commented, if it’s appropriate I’ll release the comment, if not Akismet is the way 😆

    Nhuong, that is a very positive way of looking at irritating visitors. I find it difficult when someone does that on my blog, but as you say, he has honored me by visiting the blog and commenting, so, better to accept the good with the bad, I suppose.

    Great post. Fortunately I haven’t had any nasty blog comments, so I’m not sure how I’d deal with them! 😎

    Sometimes it’s really irritating when someone gets on your nerve (doesn’t matter whether it’s because you’re gracious or not) therefore it totally depends on the two parties whether or not it’s irritating o.o

    If they suddenly cut my lane without blink blink, sure I will get mad >.< they didn’t study law is it?! 😡

    I get irritated easily especially when it is so irritating. I guess I have a low temper, I can’t control it.

    I agree that a comment is a comment. As long as it is not outright spam. After all the person has taken the trouble to come to your site and punch in a comment. Plus getting irritated will not affect the other guy at all so why let it bother you?!
