I've learnt a lot about myself over the past thirty odd years of being alive. One thing that really sticks out is that I'm a bit of a slow learner. I love to learn new things, don't get me wrong... it just takes a lifetime for it to sink in. That sometimes leaves me in a position where I seem cold, or distant. It's nothing personal, just the cogs are still turning when you've finished talking to me, left the room, driven home, slept, dreamt, woke up, gone to work, got a promotion, married, had some kids, lived a little, retired, died.
I am not a fan of confrontation. My brain melts when confronted about anything. My mouth opens, and it means well... (bless it), but then all chaos breaks loose. Most of the time this chaos translates into what some people might call, humour. Other people, call it stupidity. Anyway, our brains are all wired up differently, so we have to respect that for a start. Some people process things slower than others, but that doesn't make them any slower. Sloths are very slow, but they're also very strong. Moral of the story? Be a sloth.
