So this is a thing now. Keep your expectations low. I mean like really low. I don’t know if it’ll be anything more than just an audio version of a written piece. We’ll see how it goes. Maybe I’ll ad-lib now and then. Maybe I’ll play the piano. At this point I’m just trying to get used to the sound of my own damn voice. 😘
When I’m behaving badly it’s because I’m scared or my feelings are hurt or I’m upset or whatever. It’s not something I just do. There’s a reason there. And I’ve always appreciated it when other people have let me off the hook when I was acting badly. So long as I didn’t act too bad or push it too far.
With that said when other people are behaving badly I can make a fairly safe assumption that they’re acting that way because they’re hurt or sad or upset. For one reason or another, just the same as me. I would do well to take a step back and remember how I’ve felt when I’m hurt and then think, “they could be feeling the very same.” And I can show that same kind of love and tolerance towards them that others have shown me.
