I remember as a kid, when someone would call someone else’s domain “lamesville,” the other person would then casually call it “awesomeville” because how you name it is what it becomes.
I find that hearing a mean thing you’ve said AFTER-the-fact can be painful. To the point that it is almost easier to deny that you even said it. But truth: you did.
We all try to be good. But sometimes emotions spill not-good out. Thank goodness for forgiveness.
