When we are defensive we are easily offended. You don't have to take it personal if it rains or someone else is having a bad day. Tolerance, compassion, and understanding are the best tools to keep us from becoming resentful and bitter.
I often have to remind myself not to let things get to me so I periodically take the following vow:
"I vow not to let anything anyone says or does today offend or put me off."
Bitterness can creep into life and strangle your joy, but you have a choice every day.
