You have heard about my sarcasm bone, but have you met my alternate personality? I call him Judgy and every once in a while when my ire is up he comes out.
For most of my life I was unaware of his existence. I really thought I was a sweet person. Then I started writing.
I have come to know this Judgy character pretty well as I have reread my drafts. You may think my wit is a little biting in print…but you should see the things I don’t publish!
The pieces that don’t make the cut have titles like “Sorry or Just Plain Sad” or the piece I was working on today “Until It Happens To You”. I got the blog finished. Then I proof read it and said “Oh surely not!” I trashed it realizing Judgy had struck again.
It’s not that I totally disagree with him, mind you. Sometimes Judgy makes good points; It’s the way he makes them that leaves a little bit to be desired. Just an aside, anytime you read a blog and things around you begin to spontaneously combust, it’s probably not a good thing.
So Judgy has to go. He must be assimilated and his more vitriolic qualities must be done away with. I want to speak the truth but with love alone. I suppose he’s not just going to keel over dead tomorrow though. So if everyone once in a while Judgy pops out please accept my apology in advance!
If you had an alternate personality what would it be called?
Judgy sounds pretty scary! I’ll keep an eye out for fires next time I’m writing.
He is indeed. Be careful he sneaks up on you. Glad to have you check in! Stop on by anytime!
Hmm…. I usualy like Judgy writing though. I provides an interesting read.
Thanks Garrick! Judgy appreciates your support 😎
I know exactly what you mean … I constantly here God telling me truth in love. Sometimes it is tough love .. but still love.
A-men! Judgy and I have a disagreement about where the line gets drawn sometimes. Thanks for commenting!
Hello Pastor J,
As usual, a great post! At times, I think Judgy needs to be squashed in me, as well! Also, there may be a few “cousins”, that need to kicked to the curve, along with Judgy! Thank you for bringing this point home. It’s one of those posts that causes you to think introspectively, as I did. Sometimes, a bit of prayerful housecleaning is in order!
Thanks for that message, Pastor J. God bless!
Sorry, I left out the word “be”, in line 2, just before kicked! 🙂
‘Tis O.K. Paulette I got the word of encouragement. It is good to know I am not alone in kicking these “squatters” out of my spiritual house!
