What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from the person you’re the closest to?
I’ve learnt that I need to stop making decisions when I’m emotional, and that I need to stop and re-read things before I send them. I need to re-structure what I say before I say it because regardless of how it sounds in my head, more often than not it’s not going to sound the same when the other person reads it, if anything, it’s probably going to come across as being negative, or passive-aggressive even if that’s not the intention.
I think I’ve managed to box myself into some kind of particular persona that others view me as, when in actual fact, I’m not like that. Well, not all the time.
I’m the person that asks questions nobody else has considered yet. I’m the person who’s always thinking of plan B, C, D etc when others are purely focused on Plan A, and haven’t even thought that through properly. This is also something that Hulk does as well. He will question everything… the only difference is that he knows the right times to ask the questions, and how to do so in a nice way, whereas I do it, and I just make other people feel stupid and inadequate for not having all the answers to my questions.
It happens all the time, but I just don’t understand why they can’t think things through thoroughly in the first instance, and then give everybody else the whole story, not just bits and pieces.
Or maybe it’s just me. Maybe I expect too much?
