MisunderstoodPosted: November 12, 2011
What has evolved into an important relationship with someone I genuinely like & respect has taken a mighty blow. The damage may in fact be irreparable. I’m making myself wait a few days to decide on that for sure, but I think it’s a done deal. My instinct is to react, but I’m making myself take a more measured approach. That’s not easy for me.
My intentions have been misconstrued, and that makes me immensely sad. I work hard to conduct my life in a way that produces no regrets. I strive to be a good person who does the right thing, even when it’s hard. I tend to express myself quite openly and honestly; there’s rarely a need for those close to me to wonder where they stand. This quality is usually a good thing, but sometimes it creates hardship. Sometimes I wish I was more of a shrinking violet, less of a “live out loud” type. Life would probably be a lot easier. I bet the violet’s mood ring doesn’t change color much.
