Is AGAIN a Dirty Word?

I have lived in fear that I would commit a terrible sin…..

It’s horrible…

You’ll never believe it…

It’s made me doubt my self-worth….

What could possibly be so bad you ask?

Of hearing these five little words…

“You already told me that.”

That was something I had to avoid at all costs. I don’t know why, but I had all sorts of strategies for making sure it didn’t happen such as saying:

  • If I’ve already told you this please let me know
  • Did I already tell you about………….?
  • I might have told you this already.”

All in the fear of REPEATING MYSELF! Like it was the worst thing in the world.

Tonight I was on an inquiry session where someone was talking about writing. She said that most people never get started which is a shame, because everyone really does have something to say.

“Really?” I asked. “I thought that with the libraries and bookstores so full, that everything has already been said. When I write, I wonder why I am bothering? People already know this.”

“Well,” someone answered, “Even it is has been said, it hasn’t been said NOW in this context at this TIME.”

“Wow,” I said. “I never thought about it before.”

We really had a good laugh at how mean people are when someone is repeating themself.

Why? I am wondering. Who decided that repeating something was a sin deserving abuse, humiliation, and shaming?

I am fascinated by this and added two more words to my ABC’s of Badness after this discussion:


I love making this list. Today I added some more words as well:

  • Vengeful
  • Bossy
  • Bloated
  • Lethargic
  • Pest

It is really fun. I never really got to enjoy how BAD I really am. Especially when I REPEAT something!!!!

Have a great night!!!!
