The last couple of weeks, I've apparently been insensitive. Unintentionally, I've been saying things that have hurt other's feelings. I haven't even realized I've been doing it. The holidays stressed me out, and I haven't had as much exuberance as I normally do. When people pointed it out, I apologized. Lately, I've been trying to watch what I say.
For all the times I've accidentally hurt someone's feelings, there are several where I want to be a jerk. I can't stand it when people don't do what they say they're going to do. If you don't have the time, tell me that. If things have to happen at a later date, fine. My calendar is usually wide open.
I'm usually pretty good at being the adult and being professional, but dang! Sometimes I want to scream at the top of my lungs and tell people what idiots they are! I'd like to think that would help, but I know it wouldn't. Instead, I sit back, take a few breaths, and complain about it to my friends.
