I’m still working on the everyday thing.
Today, my question doesn’t pertain to my life.
Well, it does but not like the other questions.
My question is this:
For the past week or so, people have been snipping and snapping at each other. I have succumbed to the snipping and snapping, myself. Poor Lover boy. He just suffers through it in silence and, when I manage to bring myself round, forgives me when I apologise.
The last few days its gotten worse.
I mean two days ago, I stopped answering my phone and my door to get a break.
It did not save poor Lover boy. I was meaner than ever.
Yesterday, I answered my phone and door again, but, looking back, I wish I hadn’t.
I was so mean to Lover boy. I’m not sure I want to talk to you about it. I mean, it was bad!
I snipped, snapped, growled, and hissed all day about every tiny thing he did or didn’t do that upset me.
Here’s the worst part.
I did it in front of others.
That’s right. I humiliated him.
I would love to be able to justify it by saying he did some horrible crime or something, but, sigh, no.
He’s a quiet, steady ray of warmth and humor in my life.
When I managed to get my head back together, he was asleep. I wanted to wake him and apologize, so I would not forget. I remembered, at the last minute, that he works.
(That’s right! He’s employed!)
So, I sent him an apology in a text message.
Well, actually, it was several short messages.
Do you think I did the right thing, or should I have set a reminder to remind myself to apologise face to face?
Until next time…
