There’s a number of circumstances that I have been involved in that I will not want to respond in the same way again, not unlike adjusting a habit when one realizes that it causes pain. Don’t do it again. It’s a part of growing up, and while sometimes frustrated, I also understand that part of the frustration comes with knowing that I could have done it differently. I now know to do it differently. Ira Glass’ spiel on writing was shown to me by a good friend of mine when I had been looking through creative writing classes, but I think it’s applicable for other fields as well.
