It's true to say that sometimes people can say things that unhinge you. It happens, sometimes it's not meant to be hurtful, but it might catch a raw nerve, a secret insecurity and before you know it you find yourself trundling, unhappily down a well-worn path that you have seen all too often. It's too easy to do.
We don't really know how other people think, or why they say the things they do. We only know how we think and we can control that. These words just came to me as I tried to rationalise a crap comment that someone made,
'You can get tripped up by thoughtless words or choose to dance through life's ditches'
I'll get my wellies.
