Dealing with Pettiness

Dealing with Pettiness

March 7, 2020

Are you petty? Do you like “making things, events, or actions normal people dismiss as trivial or insignificant into excuses to be upset, uncooperative, childish, or stubborn” (Urban Dictionary)? In this episode, I talk about a time when I, too, desperately wanted to just bask in pettiness, but how a micro poem I wrote helped me realize what I should probably do instead.
