February 3: Thoughts for the Day

I used to think a “curmudgeonly” demeanor was sort of cool, even in myself.  Now, I wonder why I saw things that way.  And I wonder if, sometimes, I still do. Today, at least, when I encounter a person who has that demeanor, I feel sad; I get the sense the person is reacting badly to his or her own sense of shame or inadequacy. It makes me wish I could do something or say something to make it better.
