…and that means I sometimes have an abrasive, impersonal, even downright harsh and insulting effect on people. I’m an engineer, I solve problems, I come from the real world and the real world doesn’t care, it’ll just steamroll over you, eat you up and let you down.
However, I do wish to apologise how for all the past and future wrongs I know I will commit because sometimes, I just have to tell it like it is.
P.S. It doesn’t stop me feeling absolutely, utterly miserable afterwards. But bottling it up is simply too destructive in the long term. Rock vs. hard place.
