Taking my Inventory

Last night the person closest to me totally took my inventory. I don't know about you, but I hate having my inventory taken. And yes, it pissed me off, and I turned around and took his (it is progress not perfection). What I am amazed by, is that it didn't take me long to reflect on what he said, and come to the conclusion that he may be right. Sometimes people close to you can see defects in you that you are totally unaware of. So even though I got defensive and it pissed me off, I am very grateful. I have some work to do, and because of sobriety and my relationship with God I am not scared to do it. So thanks for taking my inventory, you jerk:)

  1. Call it what you like, inventory-opinion-unsolicited advice-criticism (constructive or not)-sharing-or caring wisdom, it's all words & you can't put that bullet back in the gun once they're out. It's not always what you say, but how you say it, & also how you take it. The whole exchange may have started out negatively, but sounds like you have put a positive spin on it & moved on nicely. Been there, not usually done that. Good example, thanks...
