Bravery apologizes – and means it,
There have been times when I’ve used this space inappropriately. Instead of confronting a person about something, instead of doing what I’m supposed to do to clear the air, I’ve written, Vague things. Veiled things.
I’m not always aware that this is what I’m doing. Other times, I’m very aware. A couple of very painful callings to the carpet about this tendency of mine have pushed me toward a growing vigilance, but sometimes I get careless. Other times I just want to hurt someone because they hurt me. That’s wrong.
It’s one thing to be honest about the journey. It’s quite another to force a thing into the open.
So, dear reader, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for the times I haven’t been aware and for the times I have. I’m sorry for using this space to occasionally attempt to settle a score. I’m sorry for dragging you into that. For those I’ve hurt along the way, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I didn’t have the courage to talk to you. I’m sorry that I tried to hurt you.
I want to be a woman, a writer, of integrity.
