He told me not to take it personally. He said he knew the person and they probably didn't realize I would take offense to their sarcasm.
He said not everyone uses graceful language.
This really struck me.
I thought about all the people I had in my life who do use graceful language.
I thought about how thankful I was for the people who choose their words thoughtfully. I thought about all the people I knew whose words never haunted me after we spoke. I thought about all the people whose careful choice of words ten to echo lovingly in my head even after our conversation is over.
Then I thought... am I one of those people?
I realized that while I admire and seek after people who used their words elegantly, I might not always do the same.
I don't think I'm ever purposefully rude or mean. But I could definitely improve in my verbal skills.
I'm really thankful for this person whose words upset me today.
It's amazing how we can hold up mirrors for each other.
