Today's writing challenge is to write something that someone told me that I've never forgotten.
It was years ago and on a blind date. At the end of the date, the man told me he was sorry, but that he was just pickier about his women. (He preferred soft-spoken, meeker women.) Those words stuck with me. Not because they were painful (they were at the time), but because whenever I'm criticized for anything, it pushes me to do better. In this instance, there was nothing for me to do. I couldn't change to be something he wanted. After he walked away, I realized I didn't want to change anyway. Sometimes, you're better off not keeping the one that got away.
Has someone said something to you that you'll always remember?
