My worst enemy... myself.

I have to say this problem has haunted me my entire life. I'm too quick to speak my mind, and too brutally honest. It's gotten me into trouble time and time again, and my wife has shared that it's embarrassing for her at times.

I get it. A lot of times I'll take a deep breath, and try to remember our worst enemy is sometimes ourselves. I often end up chewing on my foot (which isn't that tasty).

I'm always looking to improve my communication skills. I read too much into others expressions, often wrong when I do.

The last couple years I've dealt with a lot of different doctors. Many times these interactions don't turn out too well. When I feel I'm being talking "at" and not "with" I'm too quick to then say exactly what's on my mind. Which isn't always helpful!

Also there are some good sides. Knowing them, and doing different things so life is manageable. Be nice to people, try to find humor. Just because you feel like being rude means that you have to.
