Knitting knots around the family.

I am human, so I am likely to err.  I got some news that an ex-friend has had her 3rd child and may be coming to a meeting I help to lead.  We haven’t talked in about 4 years, and I have to admit, our falling out was due quite a bit to me opening my mouth before thinking or listening. 

I don’t deal well with change, I’ll be the first to admit it.  There are a lot of changes going on with all of my volunteer lives and my family’s lives.  Lately I’ve been having friends tell me that I’m a good person.  I don’t feel like a “good” person.  I’ve opened my mouth too many times to my detriment. 

I’ve come to realize that I tend to say things when I’m trying to hide what I’m really feeling.  Most of the time that’s jealousy.  So, instead of beating myself up when I screw up, I’m working to “act” instead of “react” to situations.  It may be a very long work-in-progress…
