I love coming home from work and drinking and getting on the computer and watching tv where I can FINALLY be comfortable and be myself!
I'm so bad with this. Always thinking everyone else has it all together except for me. It can be so exhausting don't you think?
Sometimes I've talked to someone and they'll mention how uncomfortable they were about something, or someone's comment really hurt them and i'm truly shocked. I didn't pick it up at all. Or i gave a 'how to' seminar at a previous job a year ago and a couple people mentioned that i seemed so at ease, while inside i thought i was going to be sick and everyone knew it!
I wonder if sometimes we see what we expect to see. I know for sure I've made an ass out of myself, but I don't recognize when I'm getting away with appearing self-assured.
