Mean But Not Mean
I heard something that pertains to me. Say what you mean but don't say it meanly. Too often I say exactly what I mean, and I say it in a snarly way that puts people down, makes fun of them, and is about my ego advancement. In fact, silence would have been better than the manner in which I said something. The words we use are only part of the message. This is why I have to work so hard on being even keeled. Keep a balance in my life. If I feel rushed, tired, fearful, anxious or resentful, then I will say "whatever" with an attitude. The meaning will be buried beneath the meanness.
