They say an elephant never forgets. I'm a lot like an elephant. I don't forget easily (and I'm even worse about forgiving, but that's another post altogether!). Yesterday in the car, Curtis and I were trying to figure out what to eat for dinner. I got a little exasperated- I blame low blood sugar from hunger, but he may just blame general meanness! I was immediately reminded of the first real "fight" we had as a dating couple. It was the same situation- riding in the car on a Friday night; every place crowded and covered up, and me grumping because I was hungry.

So apparently, I never forget- or change! Those are great traits to have, right?! I have other traits in common with the majestic elephant as well (hey, no fat jokes allowed!)- I have a strong sense of loyalty and family, for example. I show a great range of emotion, as does the elephant- "They display envy, jealousy, throw tantrums and are fiercely competitive, and they can develop hang-ups which are reflected in behaviour" (Sheldrick Wildlife Trust). So apparently elephants also never forgive!
Elephants are also incredibly thick-skinned- like literally. I'm working on the figurative side of that. Sometimes I do really well, but it's always a work in progress. I am actually much more sensitive than many people believe. My feelings get hurt incredibly easy, but I rarely let people know it. Instead I bottle it up or become incredibly defensive. Maybe I still have a ways to go...
