Will I Ever Learn?

Some days I feel like I have learned how important it is to communicate, then I go to sleep and... well... I just forget. Okay, okay, I didn't forget this time. I just didn't want to acknowledge that I needed to talk.

I thought I would just sweep the dirt under the rug and forget about it.

But here's the thing...

Dirt that is under a rug, is still dirt... it's just under a rug. 

And another thing...

A little pile of dirt under a rug can seem much bigger than it actually is.

  1. ((((hugs)))) i know those dirt piles under the rug. Sometimes they scare me too much and he has to go deal with them for/with me...

    It's a fair trade off, he really doesn't like spiders so I re-home them for him!

    1. Thanks mc kitten! I think Master has got the bad end of the deal, I don't do spiders either. Lol.

      On a good note, I did talk to him but only after I spent the whole day moping.

  2. I have the opposite problem. Everything was fine. I communicated. The communication opened up a Pandora's box that I wish had remained closed. So now I want to sweep its contents under a rug. Can I put it under yours? Hee.

    1. Ugh, Roz! Yes it is! So very hard!

      After sulking around the house ALL day I finally told him what was on my mind, and, crazy thing, it turned out okay. Lol.

  4. hugs...i feel like i can't win sometimes on the communication front. if i sweep it under the rug, it becomes a problem. if i communicate it, then it's taken the wrong way and then i wish i'd swept it under the rug. maybe i should hide under the rug?

    Learning something, and then knowing it is one thing. It's putting it in practice on a regular basis that gets a little tricky.

    1. Yes, it's very frustrating, because we spend absurd amounts of time preparing what we're going to say, going over it and over it, making sure every single word is exactly right, making sure it's all as clear as possible, and sends exactly the right message, with exactly the right tone, and then after all that, tada! they somehow misunderstand, and the way they misunderstood it always leads to a bigger mess than the one you were trying to fix.

    2. You two just gave me a flashback of when I asked Master for this, ugh, not something I care to remember.

      I think that if you are commented to this life and want to utilize all of its greatness, you MUST talk about things you don't want to talk about, and you have to do it on the chance that it will come out all wrong. If it comes out wrong, and both parties are willing, sense will eventually be made. If we don't talk about things that are weighing on our minds then it will take away from those things we want/need.

      FYI there's a good chance I won't want to admit that I said this tomorrow :)

    3. But, Scarlet, hiding under the rug isn't a bad idea ;)
