Why do THEY get madâ€¦ when I talk about ME?
What I was taught as a newcomer wasâ€¦ when I share my experience, strength and hope in a meeting, Iâ€™m supposed to be talking about me and my experience â€¦ not someone else. And, thatâ€™s what I do, when I share in a meeting.
Perhaps Iâ€™m so uniquely differentâ€¦
that this only happens to meâ€¦ but when I talk about me in a room full of alcoholicsâ€¦ invariably and like clock-workâ€¦ some alcoholics THINK that Iâ€™m talking about them.
Iâ€™m not a beat-around-the-bush kind of guy. Iâ€™m very blunt and I make sure that someone knows if Iâ€™m talking about them!!!
Iâ€™ll be talking about meâ€¦ and they are SURE that I am talking about them!!! And, then they get angry at me, and they go to any lengths to let me know of their resentment. (Naturally, they are so sure I am talking about them... that they don't even need to ask me about it, to see if they are correct
Sometimes, itâ€™s funny. But, after a few times, with the same peopleâ€¦ it gets to be a drag. And, after many times with the same peopleâ€¦ it irritates the heck out of me to just be near them!
Have you had experiences like that? Orâ€¦ am I really terminally unique in this?
Why do you suppose those people think Iâ€™m talking about themâ€¦ when Iâ€™m talking about me?
Care to share?
