A while ago I posted (sorry, I couldn’t find the post to reference it) this quote from Marilyn Monroe, “If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best”.
Poor, dear Marilyn.
Anyway, it came to mind yesterday as I was screaming at someone (she earned it) over the phone. I’ve been at my worst a lot lately. A lot. Lots of bad days. Things keep going wrong. Work stuff, health stuff, family stuff. STRESS has been taking its toll.
My worst is pretty hard to handle. I stop self editting and go a little overboard on the aggression. I get loud and sometimes even cruel. No, I’m not bragging. Just being honest. My worst sucks.
Maybe it’s time I realize that only certain types of men can handle that.
