Things I've Learned the Hard Way

Do you ever wonder why you have to keep learning things the hard way? Seriously, you've been down that road before and then you head straight for it time and time again. 

I'm human too and this happens to me as well. I don't know why things are such a surprise, but sometimes they creep up on me.

A few things that creep up on me with surprise are:
  • The morning after going to bed too late.
  • Failed communication in specific areas or with specific people.
  • Package serving size notations.
  • Nylons (I hate them, yet I buy them).
  • Going grocery shopping when hungry.
  • Using my credit card without regard to what's actually in the bank.
  • Watching a movie when the weather is good and weeds are in the yard.
  • Not caring for a person, yet mingling with them and then dwelling over what they might think of me.
  • Knowing I should use the bathroom when I see one, then deciding to wait until later.

So the list could go on and could certainly get more specific, but I think I'll stop there (before I say too much and then regret it). The point is, we are human and yet constantly try to deny our own fallibility. 

We err frequently and habitually... as a matter of fact, I would venture to say that half the time we are uncomfortable and frustrated. It may actually be our own doing - not necessarily another persons' fault. 

I'm not sure who I can blame for that last statement, but I'm sure at some point I'll try to find someone to take the heat.
