Sometimes, I need to learn to clarify what I'm saying...WHEN I SAY IT, not later. Without details, I made a comment, that while intended to be helpful, turned out to have been taken extremely insultingly, and I hurt someone. Hell, even had someone else agree with the interpretation. Had I gotten my explanation in, it might have cleared that before it got ugly, but I didn't. Thankfully, I was able to get hold of this person, explain what I meant, and make things up.
Trust is a huge thing for me...and if someone trusts me, it's one of the worst possible feelings I can have to think that I have broken or injured that trust. Thank you for giving me the chance to fix it, darlin'.
