back, tired

I'm back from my trip and pretty tired. I regretted the harshness of my last post almost immediately after I wrote it. I realize that maybe I took some of the things that were said a little personally. I don't think I'm completely imagining the implied criticism in some of the comments. I think I have to just realize that I don't have to take it to heart.

I don't always feel like I fit in with this group and so I'm a little sensitive. But people don't always think before they speak -- I of all people should know that. I should say that I had some wonderful experiences with my colleagues on this trip too. In fact, I was a little sad when it was over because my normal workdays don't provide a lot of interaction.

I'm happy to be home, though, and feeling a lot better after some time sleeping in my own bed.

  1. I, too, have a "skinny friend" who often says things that hurt my feelings. She has tried, on occasion, to convince me that it's possible for someone who weighs approx. 110 pounds to have a "fat day." I don't buy it, having had a fat life. I try very hard to let her comments roll off my back, but it's difficult. I don't think she's *trying* to hurt my feelings, but she knows all about my own insecurities and says these things anyway. I find some comfort in knowing, however, that I'm in better shape than she is.

    Anyway, I think that a blog is a perfect place to do a little venting--it keeps you from going off on said offenders and causing more problems.
