Funny to think that when we’re upset we can say the harshest things, and act the meanest to the people we would least like to do so to. We do it anyway, though. Sometimes without warning, we just let the bullets fly then later question why. The ego is one of the hardest things to conquer. The ego can be like the cool kid in high school who would allow you to tag along on his trouble-making escapades. So he causes his trouble, but when the repercussions arrive he’s nowhere in sight and there you are left to take the heat.
We say so many things letting anger lead us. Our attitudes get the best of us. I guess we shouldn’t sweat it too much, right. I mean, we’re only human. One can only expect so much. But label yourself as one. What do you expect of you? Does your performance meet your standards or do you fail after a few bumps in the road?
Sometimes the kindest things are the hardest to say in the heat of the moment. But does that make you weak? A punk for not being able to do the more challenging thing? I think so. I punked out.
Message in this bottle to my readers:
Don’t be like me. Stand up to the challenge and say something kind instead.
