You could look at why it was working on your nerves. Is it an opportunity to work on patience or tolerance?
That's sound advice Mary.

I remember many times that I got frustrated with particular uke's, who either don't do what they are instructed to do, or make the exercise difficult to perform. It slowly dawned on me that I had more to learn from them, than with those who it was easy to practice with.

All practice is practice to work on ourselves, for our own benefit.



Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.
