I found myself racing to pick up the nuts I accidentally spilled on the living room carpet so I wouldn’t get into trouble. You’re not supposed to eat outside of the kitchen, you know!
I’m 51 years old and it was not intentional! Do you find your childhood fears sometimes follow you into adulthood? Do you think you have to be perfect? Do you only have heated family discussions if the windows are closed? It’s crazy!
People “spill” in more than one sense of the word! It’s okay to show your flaws. To “spill” what’s on your heart and mind. To be raw and vulnerable. This actually makes us more acceptable. The “perfect” facade gets old and many of us sure don’t want to only see and hear the highlight reel. None of us should feel less than what we really are which is perfectly imperfect beings.
We are human, we make mistakes. Tell someone...spill it!
As for that unintentional nut spill on the carpet... Well...I missed a nut which was found and mistaken for a bug. Now I’m probably in trouble for letting bugs in the house!
Oops, I just “spilled” my frustration!
