Want input...New Goal: Be positive while being less sensitive and defensive.
Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Hmmm...Part 2 of this goal is to use "I" less when I write, so how do I begin? I want to begin with "I see myself as a positive person," but there I go again with "I." Let me think...
A person who is respected suggested to me (along with good traits and skills) that I am sensitive and defensive. When telling another wise person this, the second person agreed, but added that this was both a positive and a weakness. This is understood by me.
It was suggested that instead of being even more defensive, I should listen and take time to process, so I am doing just that. What caused this person to make the observation? Along with a zillion other things this summer, I want to learn how to be less sensitive and less defensive. I want to remain positive, however, because I do not always see what others see, and, to be honest, I think sometimes others do not see the big picture...the whole truth.
Anyway, if you have suggestions or ideas or books to read...or quotes or verses to learn, please share.
