This is a tough one for me. I think it comes from being a fairly confident person.  My way is so inherintly reasonable and right.  Why wouldn’t everyone see that and just fall into place?  

Reality is often a far different situation.  I am not the boss of the entire world.  Even if I was, my standards and abilities are not necessarilly everyone’s standards and abilities.

It is a lesson that I have to learn anew pretty much each and every day.

Fortunately, God is much more patient with me than I am with other people.  That said, I still imagine him shaking his head. “Why can’t she just do it my way?  It is reasonable and right.  Why can’t she see that?”
