My perception and my reality are clearly out of whack. Someone very succinctly pointed this out for me today, and they are absolutely right.

Its one thing to be opinionated, to be honest, to hold things out in the open. Its quite another to trash someone unnecessarily in that process.

I don’t preach. I hold my knowledge, opinions, and feelings out in the open for the most part, but I never try to impart them on others. I need to realize that being overly forward about my opinions and feelings – especially toward someone as opposed to something basically amounts to that.

I was wrong. I’ve been wrong before. I’ll try not to be again.
