It's been brought to my attention that along with my straight talking attitude sometimes comes a harsh edge that results in some people thinking that my matter-of-fact message is somehow negative and even condescending.
I'm not a guru or someone special - just a normal guy trying to do the best I can with the resources I have.
Obviously no-one likes to hear those sort of things said about them, and I'm particular sensitive to such criticism as I've struggled in many ways during my life and I aspire to be so much more than just the lessons of those times.
So, rather than just ignore that feedback or pretend like those people just don't understand - I'd like to apologise.
If I said anything recently (or ever) that rained on your parade or took away any of a good feeling that you had before my comment and not afterwards - I'm truly sorry.
I can only see things from my perspective (it's the only one I have), so I rely on feedback in order to let me know when I'm not behaving in the way I would like to or that I aspire to.
If you don't know what I'm talking about - Just ignore this dramatic interlude, but if you do, please take my post seriously and remove any negativity I may have induced, it's not good for you or me.
Thanks for your time and consideration.
