Learning to push the pause button
Who would have thought it was so hard to stop for a moment before reacting? Or is that just me?
I’m trying very hard to pause and think for a moment before saying anything – mainly because my automatic reaction seems like something out of a scripted play. When I stop, at least I have some chance of making a less predictable response.
I had to laugh when my teenage daughter saw this though. She said “You know how you’re learning to push the pause button? Well I’m just learning to push buttons!”.
