Atone and Tone

I must admit that I didn’t like the feeling that stayed inside me after I wrote my last entry. Having written what I wrote, I did not stop talking or being friends with that person. He is who he is and I am who I am, and we both have our flaws. So anyway, he is just an acquaintance; I would not write about my close friends here. 🙂 I think when you reach a certain age (ehem) you feel safe telling people close to you your real feelings without worrying whether she or he will stop being friends with me, etc etc. Like if you were my friend and you piss me off and you ask me why my face is one-kind I would tell you “because I am mad at you, that’s why”. I raise my children to be verbal, not physical. If I am angry I would look into their face and tell them in a low but serious tone, ” I am starting to get very annoyed with what you are doing so you’d better stop or I will start screaming do you like it when mommy scream?” I’ve learned that verbal tirades are not only ineffective, but also energy-consuming.

I am not always nice, but I can be. I like reading more than writing, and I wish I write better than I do. I hope that I listen more than I speak because honestly, that's the kind of people I am drawn to.
