I have a friend (who will remain nameless, although I am certain will know that I am writing about them) that I owe a big apology… AGAIN! I can honestly say that I think I’ve spent more time apologizing to this one individual than I have to all the rest of the people in my life combined. Somehow this friend always manages to bring out the worst in me. I don’t know what causes it, there is not any particular behavior on their part that I can pinpoint, but whenever I get around this friend I suddenly become my evil twin. I’m rude, I’m mean, I’m spiteful! I often speak without thinking, saying things that I immediately regret. Or even worse, I will thoroughly plan out and then say the most horribly sarcastic things you could possibly say to a person. One of the things that makes this so upsetting is the fact they are actually a really great person! And I really don’t just mean that this is someone that I tolerate, I really like this person. This is someone I consider to be a very close friend. My worry is that if I don’t learn to control my tongue, they won’t be a friend much longer! I really don’t know what the problem is, but I’d better figure it out quick, or pretty soon I’m going to have one less name on my friends list!
