When Conversations Make You Cringe With Embarrassment

Leave a Comment
You ever have one of those moments where you wish you could take some words back? Not a moment where it was directed towards someone else, but when you were sharing your feelings about something, and then you realized later that it should have NEVER come out of your mouth in the first place.

You guys know I am all about not keeping stuff in, but I think I might need to clarify that opinion. The Bible says "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." Well, my words put me in a position of knowing that there are some serious thoughts that need to be changed in a heartbeat. They were not thoughts I had on a conscious level, but on a level where they were hindering what I wanted to do.

Fortunately I had a great sounding board that has a knack for getting me to be extremely honest about the things that matter. But ok, the thoughts have been revealed, the feeling yucky is gone, the embarrassment is ever present. I mean, gosh, I told someone what I REALLY felt about something, and now cringe.

Was it good for me? Yes. Would I do it again if needed? Probably. Neither of that negates the sense of embarrassment and cringing, but if it gets me unstuck, I shall cringe and bear it.

Whatever you are, be a good one. - Abraham Lincoln
