"those" MomentsHave you ever had one of "those" moments?
You know the ones I am talking about. The ones where everything is moving along fine, your happy, blissfully and peacefully content even. You've had a good, maybe even a great, day and all is "right" with the world. Then, someone says something to you, something innocent and actually quite sweet and you snap. Yeah, "that" moment.
"That" moment where memories of something that you thought you had previously dealt with and moved on from suddenly come flooding back to you, like a flash flood - there is no warning. Waves of sorrow and grief roll over you, tossing your mind around like a limp rag doll. The current of aching pain and anguish suddenly pulls you down and drags you along.
Then suddenly, without pausing to consider the effects you might have on the poor innocent soul, words spew out of your mouth, bombarding them with your memories, your powerful emotions. They are left shell shocked, and you, you instantly regret it. Yeah, *sighs*, "that" moment.
I have. Recently.
To that person, and to any others I have ever done that to I'd just like to say I'm sorry.
