The last two days have been pretty heavy spiritually. First, yesterday I had to do the old confrontation with someone. I didn’t want to do it, my wife made me. She knows better, and I know better to listen to her, she’s usually right. So I wavered back and forth for about an hour, wrote down some thoughts and made the call. It went well, as well as it could have. At least some issues were brought out into the open and there was genuine love and respect, so that’s about as good of an outcome as you can imagine.
This morning I had someone push one of my “hot buttons”. I won’t get into details, but I was ready to lay this person out. I have quite a temper sometimes, and I could literally kill someone with words, it’s a terrible thing. I’d say I let off about .001% steam in my response – not very good, but what was going on in my mind was worse. Then my wife called and I let off about 2% more steam, now that was VERY bad – she didn’t deserve it or even realize what was going on. Lucky for me she is forgiving. I got home and explained everything to her and came to the conclusion that this was an area I need to grow in and I did ok, maybe a C-.
