On being a dick

Nobody likes having a dick hang around them, but all too often we don’t realise that we’re actually being the dick in the group. I’m not sure if the reminder will stick, but it is timely. As I go through my own personal challenges, I’m increasingly being a dick to my wife and basically everyone around me.

Ben Brooks wrote a great piece about The Infamous Nature of Being a Dick.

I became known as a dick because I had lost my patience in truly thinking through and considering what I meant when I would write: “this looks like shit”. That’s not who I am, or how I think, but that is very much who I came across as to those that read this site.

Unfortunately “this looks like shit” is something that I’ve literally been saying regularly of late. Something I need to be more conscious about.

The added bonus of this post is that Jenxi’s latest post about writing longhand reminded me that I need to constantly write on paper in order to improve my cursive writing. I remember reading a blog post from a blogger who wrote his post on paper before posting. It’s a great read, and I’ll update this post if I ever find that article again. (Update: Found it!) So I decided that’s what I’d do for this post. This post was written in my daily journal (page 1 & 2) before copying it online. Hopefully this adds a little something to the writing and will help me improve.
