Entry: Sitting in the Car .... Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Wondering how and why some people make things bigger than they are. Example: I say something like "I don't like orange shirts," so then the other person refrains from buying and/or wearing orange shirts around me. Did I say you can't wear orange? Did I say that seeing orange gives me seizures? Still trying to communicate effectively but the more I do it, the more I wonder if I'm the only one in need of an adjustment. I communicated something yesterday and today that was simple and direct, and it became confusion anyway! And the type of confusion that occurs makes me seem petty, or like a stickler, or like an asshole. I think the only thing that makes me feel better about knowing this now is that I KNOW I'm not always the anal person folks make me out to be. I definitely wonder sometimes. *sigh of relief* Now I'm stuck in between a rock and a hard place ... If I talk like their slow then I'm rude and condescending and I treat them like a child. If I continue trying to be "adult" about it then I'm misunderstood, extra steps are taken, I get frustrated and the cycle of misery continues. Actually that's more like being stuck between a can of oil and a can of gasoline while someone is holding a match. Either way, things will blow up.
