If you read my post from yesterday you will know that I said I would pause before speaking to avoid being defensive. Well, I’ve already violated that rule. I handled a disappointment really badly just now and I shot off a text very quickly without thinking. And I’m pretty certain that what I texted irritated if not downright angered the recipient, someone I care deeply about.
I can’t open my mouth without inserting my foot lately. I know I am doing it and I’m trying to stop but it’s really hard for some reason. I wonder if there is a rock big enough in AZ for me to crawl under and hide for the next few weeks?
Which gives me an idea…what about a vacation spot exclusively for people to hide out in when they’ve embarrassed themselves….oh, that’s right….Rehab Clinics already exist but maybe not for garden variety assholes like me. Is there is cure for being a defensive and insecure asshole? I sure hope so.
