Occasionally, i unconsciously step into this hypersensitive mode such that; every action triggers a reaction. It isn’t always the smartest decision but it is what i do in order to “clearly” communicate.
Last night, we decided to stay in to watch a movie on Netflix, as we browsed through the website; in search of a movie to watch, the trivial topic of remote controls came up.
I completely misunderstood his point and took it out of context. I snapped !!! However, he made another gentle attempt to explain things. i am strongly convinced that he realized that; i was acting out of character because, something deeper was awakened. Thankfully, the man of the hour, hardly runs out of patience or understanding. So, he forgave me even before i could mumbled ” i’m sorry …,” gosh i felt like a total jackass afterwards.
Dearest man, next time i act this crazy please go ahead and look for this switch
After reflecting on my very naughty behaviour, i concluded that i wrongly associated the word “Remote control” to the word “control” and entered a into a defensive mode. At times; it is hard to stay emotionally rational when you’ve been exposed to so much garbage.
Lesson learnt: look before you lip
