I am not the best with the people skills. Working on it, as best I can. But I can miss cues, and pull faux paus for it. This time, at least, the message got through loud and clear. Which is regrettable, but there it is.
Of course, Michael wants to play devil’s advocate and make me think about other options, which is fair – especially given the absolutely shitty few days I’ve had. And there are plenty of demony points to raise. But, it’s something I’ve been hesitent on for a bit now, just because the cues and signals have strongly shouted one thing, conflicting with what I’ve been told.
Oh, fuck it. I don’t know what to believe anymore. Maybe this was all just a horrible mistake.
