People tell me that I’m really nice. Friends say that I’m very supportive and that they call me for opinions because they know I’ll be honest with them. They know that I will always tell them what I believe but that I’ll try to do it in a way that they can hopefully hear. At my age, I’ve learned that sometimes a good “edit” is needed before I actually speak-otherwise it might not go so well.
But, what truly amazes me is how surprised they are when after I’ve been pushed to my limit, how really scary I can be. Ask my kids – they’ll tell you they always knew when they went one step too far by just looking at my face.
Never mistake my kindness for weakness.
