Okay, hands up and admit it. You messed up, right? What did you do? Lash out? Forget your friend’s birthday? Unleashed the hoards of Hell upon this earthly realm? Said something unintentionally offensive? Maybe it was something more severe. Like, you gave into your feelings at the expense of someone else? Or maybe you hurt … Continue reading Not on the Priority List part 4: One Foot Wrong
