This is powerful and insightful. And really honest.

I had times in the past when frustration with my own lack of verbal self-control led me to seriously weigh the merits of getting my jaw wired shut. I still struggle to STFU, especially when I get defensive.

RN, I’m working on reflexive listening in order to facilitate comm with my people. Doing that opened a whole other can of worms that needed to be addressed. The upside is that I will grow as a person from doing the work.

Important lesson. Thank you for writing this! :)

Mama, writer, lover, fighter — I wear my heart on my sleeve because my pants pockets are too small.
