Newsflash: I’m Not Perfect!

I’m having one of those days. I feel bitter, I feel alone, I feel regretful, and I feel a host of other negatively named emotions. And why? Over something I did, which to me was nothing, but to someone else was perceived as negative. Even though I don’t think I was wrong and didn’t mean to do anything hurtful, this is my fault.

So where to go from here? I spilled my guts in an attempt to rectify the situation and to make both parties feel better. Did I succeed? Well, if I did, do you think I’d be typing this? No, I spilled, then sat here and waited for a response that wasn’t coming, all the while making myself more miserable.

It’s not worth it. And by that, I mean that nothing is worth me making myself feel like a pile of crap over. What I’m trying to fix is worth fighting for, but I can’t use its value to justify making myself miserable. I should feel remorse and sorrow, but I shouldn’t feel like my soul is crumbling. Yes, I’m being overly dramatic, but the description fits.

I have no idea what to do right now. Do I try and say something and risk making the situation worse and making myself feel worse? Do I shut my mouth in the hopes that it magically heals itself in my silence? What do I do???

I’m intelligent enough to know what I want and what I have to do in order to obtain it and hold onto it. But I’m also human; I’m emotional, I’m flawed, and I’m not always strong enough to keep outside influences from affecting the things going on inside. I guess right now I’m just tired of feeling like something you put out with the trash. I want to feel better. More important, I want to BE better.

    did however expertise some technical points using this website, since I experienced to reload
    the site a lot of times previous to I could get it
    to load properly. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK?

    Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will very frequently
    affect your placement in google and could damage your high quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
