I upset someone I cared about. Not intentionally, but it happened all the same. Sometimes I find myself speaking in a context that makes sense to me, that doesn’t make sense to others or take into account their feelings on the topic.

Whilst it’s important to be our authentic selves throughout our lives (otherwise, discontent will arise), that doesn’t mean we should thoughtlessly disregard the base of understanding or social structure of others.

What works for me, doesn’t work for everyone else. Be mindful and empathetic of that.
