I just had a small 'aha' moment. I was, erm ah.... I was 'reviewing' my previous entry. We all do that, don't we? I mean, at least once, right?
Anyway, I had a flash of reading my words more objectively. It didn't last long but long enough to read the entry through the eyes of a 'stanger'. You know, objectively. It allowed me to see my words in their stark nakedness. I wonder why I included some things... things that weren't necessary to understanding the comments but made the thing sound whiney. Now that's some helpful information. Okay, maybe not for you, but it sure is for me.
