We all have quirks. (Thinking or saying you don’t is its own special one.) Why are some endearing or at least tolerable, and some irritating? And how does that sometimes change – what once was tolerable becomes irritating or irritating becomes endearing? Or something can be tolerable from one person but not another.
which, yes, I realize that my issue(s) with someone else’s quirks are just that – MY issue(s) – and sometimes I do try to unpack that. which can, of course, make something more tolerable. on the other hand, not everything is explicable, it’s a big world out there, and I’m not going to understand or like it all.
