Foot in Mouth Disease

Foot in Mouth Disease is serious ailment. Those who suffer the more severe forms can be offensive at any time and in any place. Like in a church building full of your peers. Not that I’m talking about me. Because I NEVER say anything stupid or inconsiderate. (Did you catch that subtle sarcasm?)

I feel like my main issue is either…

A. I don’t say anything because I don’t want to be a jerk.

B. I let the jerk out and say multiple offensive and stupid things.

What is with me? Why can’t I just think before I speak? I could save myself a lot of “end of the day agonizing” if I just employed some consideration. Maybe I’ll get it right when I’m 90.

P.S. At the end of the day I review my actions. I think about what I’ve done and how I could have handled events better. Sometimes this leads to a lot of guilty feelings and sometimes it leads to feelings of accomplishment. Hence that is what I mean when I say ‘end of the day agonizing.’

  1. This is one of the biggest clubs on earth, and I may possibly be the president. I’ve had to learn to apologize and pray for forgiveness. Don’t be to hard on yourself!

  2. I am a “on’t say anything because I don’t want to be a jerk” person. Until I am tired and/or my patience has depleted to the negative. Then people are shocked by my personality change. I need to find a better balance…or any balance at all 🙂 Remember our ‘Do unto others’….everyone wants to be forgiven and therefore should be willing to forgive!

  3. Yep, I’m totally with ya girl. Maybe I think it’s better for me to blog than to have a real life personal gathering with friends because I tend to talk way faster than my brain can think and end up saying ridiculously pathetic stuff. Ah well, no worries! I still think you’re pretty awesome.
