I have lots to say about this today, which shows me I should say nothing at all:)
Okay so I'm back on track now. I totally took something personally today that I shouldn't of. It knocked me all out of whack. My first reaction was to defend myself. But I learned early in sobriety not to defend or explain. Most alcoholics and addicts spent years defending their crappy behavior. I sure as hell did. But sober I have learned that defending and explaining myself is actually starting an argument. Not doing it has taken a lot of practice, especially when I feel under attack.
I did okay just leaving it alone today, but am bothered by the fact it even bothered me. I'm a such a work in progress!
