How many of you, when things go wrong, immediately tell yourselves you are at blame, and stupid, instead of looking at the situation logically and thinking it might not have been your fault?
Today my new business cards arrived. I have just finished my diploma so could add the letters ‘DipRLM’ after the BSc (Hons) at the end of my name. This might not mean much to many people, but I was so excited, and so proud, I’ve been counting off the days until they arrived.
So, when they arrived, I put a picture of one on facebook – and quickly realised that for some reason, I had put B(Sc) Hons instead of BSc (Hons). Now I know this is a stupid little thing, but I feel like a complete fool. I shouldn’t have got this wrong. I’m supposed to be intelligent but I feel like the stupidest person on earth. I KNOW I’m overreacting but I just can’t stop myself. I have already thrown all the cards away and bought some more, correct ones, at my own cost rather than the companies.
My immediate reaction was to cut myself. So, I guess the thinking is, I am stupid, I deserve to be punished. I’m not going to, but the thought was there. I’m glad I have got to a place where I can fight that feeling. I just wish I didn’t feel so sad about it, and so stupid.
Take Care. x
