Will I never learn?!

Well, congratulations to me, ladies and gentlemen. I have managed to do it once again, even though I promised myself I wouldn't: I unleashed my sharp tongue and the result wasn't good, to say the least. I managed to be cruel to someone and in my blog no less! I'm incorrigible!

I had an experience along these lines, although not to this extreme, a few months ago, and I promised myself I'd never do it again. Yet here I am talking about how I screwed up for the second time in as many months. It's a condition the Fashionista likes to refer to as word vomit, meaning one doesn't monitor one's words carefully enough and then ends up saying something he/she shouldn't, often to the detriment of someone else. I am most definitely guilty of that offense. Cruelty is not a normal personality trait for me, but in this case, I sure managed to be cruel.

My initial reaction was that I never wanted to write in my blog again, but I decided that was foolish. I love writing here, and it's often a great release for me. No, the real solution is to consider very carefully what it is I'm writing before I post it. And if it's a harmless topic that's not ripping someone to shreds, then I can go ahead and publish it. If not, well I'd better just leave it as a journal entry.

I'm glad you decided to keep writing in your blog. It would be sad to lose it!
