Sounds like you're the one suffering.
When you find yourself suffering, realize that it is only by your choice. This woman has done nothing 'to you.' She is merely sitting down. (I
understand your frustration, but follow me here.)
So, when you realize you are suffering, and suffering by choice, the only rational thing to do is ask yourself, ‘How can I make this better to
alleviate my suffering?’
Luckily for you, there’s plenty of things you can do.
You could be kind and honest, and as a woman is about to sit next to you, you could simply say, “I’m sorry ma’am, but I would really prefer to
sit by myself at the moment. Thanks for understanding.”
Or you could get up and move yourself.
Or you could strike up a conversation. I’ve found (especially the more that I embrace it) that if someone – a ‘stranger’ – enters my
personal space or enters my daily journey, often times they have something great to offer me, or vice versa, I have something great to offer them.
There are no accidents. Only opportunities.
The last option may be to do nothing, say nothing, but use this as a chance to practice remaining calm, remaining happy, and not letting ‘the little
things’, such as a random women sitting next to you, get you down.
All your actions, emotions and responses are completely controlled by you. If you want to be happy and carefree, then choose to be happy and carefree,
regardless of who is sitting by you or not. Or, choose to take action that is still loving, yet assertive, to retain your peace.
