Yes, I am a bit of a hothead….

by on Mar.12, 2004, under General

I do know that I have a temper, and a fairly rapidly activated one. It’s something I’ve struggled with in the past, and it’s something I still struggle with. Perhaps I made a mistake in having this guys vehicle towed, that I should have been calmer about it. BUT, on the other hand, I don’t like letting things go, letting problems go. *sigh* I just need to keep better control of things. In that aspect, I made a mistake, in not perhaps “turning the other cheek”. So, in some ways, I am at fault. I don’t like admitting mistakes either, but I think perhaps this morning I made a mistake in not being calmer, or thinking about it more, and instead I made a mistake in just reacting. I’ve gotten better about it here lately, and a lot of things I do remain calm on, but like anything else, it seems I fail a lot too…

I guess what that means is I need to learn to relax, but find a way to still do what I feel is necessary to do what’s “right”. This morning, I did what I felt was right, even though perhaps I wasn’t necessarily entirely in the right. At least, not in the right in my emotions or response. I did an action that resolved things, although not as nicely as I could have done. But, I don’t know for sure. It’s something I’ve still got to think about….

    STOP THINKING.

    No, wait – way to go for actually taking something I said to heart.  I’m proud of you for that.

    Now, can you please kiss and make up with Daniel (and let me watch)?  He was good to say all the things he did, whether you wanted to hear them or not.

    Other Tonya is entirely right.  I agree with what Daniel said, and I agree that the two of you should make up.

    dude, your ego is WAY too huge if you wouldn’t accept a ride to campus from your roommate.  Nick’s roommate got rides from him for a YEAR.  My husband drives me to work frequently, and vice versa.

    You need to let go of things.

    It’s not even so much the ego aspect of things.  It’s a responsibility issue, and it’s also a sense of justice.  That’s the bigger deal for me – was there justice in my choice?  And after thinking about it, yes.
