I'm not an idiot, I said

I cannot tell you how many times over the years I've called myself an idiot. Gotta be in the gazillions, fer sure.

I open the wrong folder in Word, and it's "Idiot!"

Misspell preference, and it's "Dumbass!"

E-mail someone and forget the attachment, and it's "What a duh!"

I probably shouldn't do that.

No, I definitely shouldn't do that. I'm trying to learn that putting myself down like that is just as powerful as someone else saying it to me. I wouldn't put up with that, so why do I do it myself?

No clue, but I'm going to start stopping it. I'm going to start trying to recognize the things I do well and not pay so much attention to those little annoyances.

That's the plan, and I'm sticking to it.
