Overall, If I were to describe my general temperament… I’d say I’m easy going and generally a people pleaser. I tend to put my needs and wants last and will rarely gripe about it. I’m not generally a grumpy person. I can be stubborn and argumentative, but that tends to come out more at work than in my personal life.
Last night, I proved all of those generalizations about me wrong. I threw a tantrum. It’s been a long time since I’ve done that. And in some ways, I don’t regret it because what I said, needed to be said. However… It’s my approach that I’m regretting this morning. Not only did I impact my own ability to sleep… but I feel like a total asshole over it, and I hate that.
I’m learning to communicate better, but I still have moments where my communications will equate to my own version of a diver screwing up and doing a belly flop. I suppose I should be glad that I can see my own mistakes and learn from them. That I’m open enough to self improvement and overcoming my own shortcomings that I can at least see when I’m royally screwing something up. Doesn’t mean I can stop the belly flop before it happens, but at least I’ll know it’s coming and can brace myself accordingly.
All I want right now, is a hug and a snuggle. A redo on my evening last night and my morning today. Things are fine, work has been good so far today, I had coffee with the bestie this morning too which always makes my day better. I guess I just have to shake it off, chalk it up as an opportunity for growth and call it good.
Hope you are all well, my friends in Neverland. Happy Tuesday. Cheers!
