Today's Truth

I hate being misunderstood.

Sometimes I know I am not communicating clearly. Sometimes tone gets omitted (like in email) and that changes everything. Sometimes what the other person says to/about me doesn't mean the same thing to them that it does to me.

My feelings get hurt. I scramble to try to "fix it" (the miscommunication or misunderstanding). Usually, we resolve the problem, but it doesn't change the fact that the mismatch occurred.

In a few hours, it is usually over. By tomorrow I might not even remember what the problem was.

But in the moment, it feels bad. I feel bad.

I think I will go to bed and let sleep take it all away.

That's what I'm gonna do. See you tomorrow.
