a few ramblings from the mind of an optimist
You mean that isn't normal? ;o)It has been a fault of mine nearly forever. I was sure whatever I say would be taken the wrong way. So I never said anything.I never really had any evidence to back up my theory, but I never got into trouble. I'm working on fully realizing that people aren't thinking about me nearly as much as I think they are. Also, if they take what I say in the wrong way, it says more about them than it does about me.
Don't worry, it wasn't us. We spent a few days talking about you the week before last.
Funny you should say that. I had the very same thought late last week. And I agree 100% with Sarah, if someone takes something the wrong way, it says more about them. I struggle with quelching my personality simply to appease others. Don't get me wrong, I know I can be overbearing, but as a boss once told me - passion is not always a bad thing.
Yes, I feel like that at times too. I'll actually express my opinion around others and then I later analyze what I said and how the other people might have interpreted it. Nasty habit!
