Challenge #79, March 21, 2011: I hate explanations; I hate confrontations; I hate justifications. I hate telling someone my motives or my actions or my feelings. I’d prefer to just let things go unsaid and unexplained. Unfortunately, this is usually pretty unfair to the other person. Right now, I really owe someone an explanation. I’ve been in this situation many times before, and I usually just let things go—let the other person figure it out for themselves. But I know that that is not fair, or the right thing to do. So today, my challenge to myself and to you is to give an explanation where an explanation is due.
