A personality flaw coming to light

This week I gained a new perspective on how others perceive me. I am often busy beyond belief so when I talked to people it’s usually only out of necessity, and few words are used. “I’ve got places to go and people to kill.” Is a funny motto I often say, playing on my years as a writer. I usually say it when I need my kids to get the led out and move faster.

While I don’t expect or really need people to check up on me, others are not the same. My mind is an analytical one, that deals with facts far more than emotions, so there isn’t much that bothers me, but my short interactions with people were making some think I didn’t care about them. Having it brought to my attention, I realized my mistake of thinking solely from my perspective. No, I still don’t need words of comfort and praise to feel good about myself, but it doesn’t kill me to try and make the effort toward others. The only problem I can see is that I tend to be laser focused when busy, so I need to find a way to force myself to slow down and take the time to be more thoughtful with my interactions. Habits are hard to break, I only hope those I’ve hurt will be patient with me while I attempt to adjust my behavior.
