And suddenly … crash

I considered myself a good judge of character – until today. I am in fact so surprised at a revelation that the foundation for my judgment seems nothing short of self-congratulatory and delusional. This is uncomfortable, and tremendously humbling. I look back at yesterday and see someone who was naive, even gullible and childish.

Truth has a way of setting a soul straight, and though I am disappointed in myself for having enthusiastically and wholly bought into what was simply illusion, I suppose I am stronger as a consequence. Embarrassed, chagrined and even somewhat angry – but certainly, a better person today than yesterday.

So now what? Rebuilding the foundation, stone by stone, and let the experience teach me its lesson.

  1. Yes, some of those awakenings can be quite uncomfortable – a whole shift in perspective sometimes.

  2. Yes – and I try to think back on this periodically so that I don’t make the same judgment error again.
