WOW! I learned more about myself today. #1 I have known for a long time that I talk more when I’m nervous… a lot more. Today while having lunch with a friend I noticed that each time she brought up a stressful situation that she is going through, I jumped in “talking” thinking that I am being supportive. This wonderful woman is one of the most competent and wise people I know. She doesn’t need me to “fix” anything or give her my opinions or solutions.
To tell you the truth, I know better than to do this. I just seem to suck at conversations.
Well, I plan to change that. My friends and family will just have to accept the quieter me.
