As all of you know, I’m not a big drinker. As a matter of fact, I maybe have a glass of wine a year.
It’s my lifestyle choice. I’ve got nothing against people who drink.
People who have casual glasses of wine, who like to go out and have margaritas — it’s your choice. Not my choice. I’m not judging you.
What I am going to do, and I do want to talk about, is dissecting things like drunk talk or drunk texting.
How many times have you gotten into trouble because you got a little too drunk, and you texted somebody in the middle of the night?
You said things that, well, you almost wish you had “I’m rubber, you’re glue, everything you say bounces off me and sticks to you.” Remember that as a kid?
How many times have you attacked somebody — their character, who they are, when you were drunk.
We’ve all done it. Nobody’s innocent.
But I want to dissect drunk texting and drunk talk right now.
A lot of people like to just blame it on the booze.
I don’t normally get that way, which is the truth. Most people don’t normally get that way when they’re sober.
I’ll give you that.
But you still said the things when you were drunk.
And drunk texting is repressed feelings and repressed emotions that you have about somebody.
Things that you are afraid to talk about. Things that are bothering you deep down. Things that you need to get off your chest. So, when you drink,
It makes it that much easier, because your inhibitions are way down. The words just seem to fly out of your mouth at 100 miles an hour, with absolutely zero remorse.
Why? Because that’s what alcohol does. It lubricates your mind.
It lubricates your mouth.
And it inebriates your common senses.
So you tell somebody things when you’re drunk that you really wish you could take back the next morning.
Unfortunately, most of the time, unless you drunk texted them, there’s no proof of what you said. Because most of time, when you get to that point, you don’t remember what you really said.
The other person does, though. And the other person realizes that well, you’ve got some things that you really wanted to talk about before it was a Friday.
It’s hard to wash it off the next morning with a shower.
When you drunk talk to somebody or drunk text them, the next morning, you hit it off with a bloody mary.
But the person who is at the other end of the drunk madness, the other end of the being drunk attack, they don’t really wash it off. Because they’re really taking to heart the things that you said.
Why? Because they realize the things that you said are pretty much the way you really feel.
There are things that were bothering you that you kept deep inside. That it took the lubrication of wine, tequila, vodka, gin, grain alcohol, or whatever else your choice was, to get all this stuff out.
In one way, they’re glad that you got it out because the truth is now out there — whether you remember or recall what the truth really was,
Because you probably woke up the next morning and continued to repress what you really needed to get out anyway. You don’t realize you got it out when you were drunk texting. And the fact is, the other person does now know exactly the way that you feel.
So, I know you want to wash it all away when you do this to somebody. But in reality, you can’t.
So let’s look at a deeper lesson.
Because I’m not condemning somebody who drunk texts. I’m actually going to honor you drunk texters and drunk attackers right now.
You’ve got communication issues. You need to start communicating better with your partner, your lover, your mother, your father, whoever you decided to drunk attack or drunk text.
You need to think about the things that you said, or at least have them remind you of all the things that you said. And then you need to start becoming more conscious of the things that you are suppressing and hiding deep inside your mind, in the realms of your heart.
Look at the positive sides of drunk attacking and drunk texting. It opened up a whole new way of communicating. Maybe it taught you a lesson never to do it again. Maybe it taught you a lesson on how to communicate better and get really in touch with your feelings.
But you can’t wash it over. The other person already heard the words. And the other person, if they’re an honorable human being, are taking the words to heart. And are not thinking to their selves, well he or she doesn’t really feel that way, they were just drunk.
Because I was taught a long time ago, the truth always comes out when you’re drunk. Because it lubricates your mind, and lubricates your soul.
