Good Morning and Welcome to Project Thanx!
The weekend brought an unexpected phone conversation when a friend called to express her unhappiness that I had written a post about her without asking permission. I assured her that I had not written a post about her and would not do so without her reading it first. (To all my friends reading the blog, please know I do not and will not post anything about our relationships without first talking together.)
I continue the rest of this post with her full permission.
It seems one of the posts written a couple of weeks ago really hit a nerve within and she had drawn the conclusion that I had written about her because I was afraid to discuss my feelings face-to-face. It was a wonderful opportunity for us (long-time friends) to put things out on the table that had been laying dormant within us both.
So here is an experiment for the week: If something is gnawing within about someone you care about, how about having a person-to-person conversation? Yes, it may be awkward or uncomfortable. Yet, it can allow the opportunity to clean out an area within that might be festering with possible misinformation. You may be very thankful you took the time and effort to check this out.
If you'd like, please email us your experiences and with your permission, we'll post your responses on Project Thanx.
