Something I Dislike – Addendum
What occurred to my feeble brain a short while ago is that my previous post could be seen as me trying to shift blame. That is not my goal at all. If I am to blame for the misunderstanding or the mistake or whatever it is that caused the problem, I would fully own that. The thing is, I do not know. I do not know if I am to blame or not. I have a difficult time owning responsibility for an error when I do not even know what the error is.
What follows is not an actual conversation, just a sort of summation of the situation.
“I am angry with you.”
“Why? What did I do?”
“You wronged and hurt me.”
“I did? How?”
“Are you going to stand there and deny what you did?”
“Since I am not sure what you are accusing me of having done, yes.”
“I can’t trust you any more.”
“What did I do?”
“Are you going to tell me what I did?”
What does one do with that? I do not know, except to move on. So let us move on and speak of it no more.
