How Turning Mute Made Me Better Not Bitter #Lesson 26

Terminating my sickness leave, my life went back to normal. Only from the outside. Colleagues dealt with me as if I was the same person who left her job to rest her voice weeks ago. And friends welcomed me back to my normal life, one charged with social activities.

I learned to stop over crying little problems. Before this experience I used to get angry more often. From the traffic, from not finding a place to park my car, from the long queue in the supermarket. Yet after my personal experience with muteness the focus of my eyes got adjusted.
