Often, I am too "bottom line" and direct....appearing 'curt'.
Sometimes, I do wish that my grasp, understanding and 'softness' were more easily visable.
There are times, with readers, and loved and cherished ones, that my directness does not reveal the human struggle. People , even my own children, sometimes find me 'unfeeling', the truth is.......it is sometimes too emotionally straining or distracting to feel, and I go for the bottom line of doing, or the fact of the matter decision.
There are many times, when a decision HAS to be made.........I am not afraid of this, nor do I shun it.........but it does not mean that I do not "feel". Those around me, have not been allowed to see my inner turmoil.
