didactic: 2. inclined to teach or lecture others too much
This is me. Didactic. Completely. Most of the time.
Sometimes people try to point it out in a gentle or helpful way and yet the whole time they are telling me, they are panicky of the resulting friction that will come between us. They are also waiting, knowing I will just go right back to being didactic in my explanations and justifications of who I am and how I am.
Might I suggest, if I bug you, stop coming back for more?
I like to think my didactic nature is about something other than hearing myself talk or being a snooty know-it-all. I like to believe it comes from having lived a whole lot of life in 40 odd years and having been observant of it all. In my mind, my "lecturing" is more of a long winded explanation. I talk for a long time, with many examples in the hopes that you will understand clearly what I mean, knowing full well that what I can convey with words falls far short of what I have in my brain or heart.
I come closest to getting my head and heart thoughts out with the written word. Often what comes out of my mouth is a disaster.
