Who tweaks you, gets your goat?

Why is it people have the need to get your goat? They know something irritates you and they keep doing it. It's incredibly frustrating.

they can only tweak it if you let them

I honestly don't think they know. I think we are just too uptight. We need to let it roll off our back. And really, if it is getting our goat, what does that say about us? What are we insecure about? Why is it hitting a raw nerve? Why do we care so much about it? Why are we so sensitive about it? Because we are insecure, or maybe we care too much what others think?

I dunno... sometimes I think I'm a real jerk for being so hard on others. I expect far too much, so I need to cut others slack, and remember they are not perfect.

Really? Do you think they actually don't know they are tweaking us? I never thought about that possibility. I'm glad you mentioned it.

well... the ones that love us don't know what they are doing. I cut them slack.

the ones that do know what they are doing are jerks, and don't deserve our attention. cut your ties with these folks, they are not worth it! time to weed the flower bed... get rid of the negativity in your life. surround yourself with better folk.

those with who we assemble, we soon resemble.

Yeah. My sister-in-law always manages to push my buttons, but I don't think she does it on purpose - most of the time. It's just the way she is, and she doesn't realize the effect she has on other people.
