That moment when you find it necessary to do something that you previously ranted & raved about when other people did it.
Please forgive me, everyone, for my much-spouted-but-now-I-realize-was-wrong demand that you: tell me immediately if anything I do upsets you.
After yesterday’s doctor visit, I found myself having to face the fact that sometimes thoughts and feelings take a while to emerge or be processed, just like physical damage is not always immediately obvious.
So, please forgive me for demanding that you not call me on my B.S. unless you did it right away, especially as I see how much I need people to make those calls now that Barbara Gatewood is not here to do so.
(And I should not have placed the entire burden of calling me on my B.S. on her, in any case.)
(None of which means that I’m going to stop being who I am — an opinionated and blunt person. But I will make more of an effort to listen, especially to comments about past behavior. )
