I keep writing this post and deleting it. Yes I want to post it. No I don’t. Well, maybe. Like a million times. Today, is a Yes, as I think I’ve about had it.
My spirit is heavy, which makes for difficult public sharing. At every turn it gets heavier. Why are there so many Asshats in this world?
Should I let the Asshats and Trolls rule me life? No. Am I? Yes. So here’s a baby step, trying to move on.
Writing is going gangbusters, after I had a heart to heart with my Critique Group. I’m so grateful to have these lovely hardcore people in my life. Everyone needs someone who can tell them when they’re wandering off path. I hope you have this, all of you. Whether you’re writing or simply just living. Listen to the wise people* in your life.
I’ll leave it at this. At the end of the day we are all the same inside. Regardless of race, religion, sexual preference or orientation. If you are feeling hate or fear against any group of people, I ask you to do some soul searching. Ask yourself why? Because in the end: We. Are. The same.
Please don’t forget that, no matter how fearful you are of differences.
Bullying. If you are carrying out this kind of behavior: you need to check yourself. Let’s just leave it there. I am so weary of these smug people thinking they are better than everyone else. Stop it already. You just look like an Asshat, not wise. See definition of wisdom below.
Psh. Like my words will open their eyes and make them realize they are wrong. Sure. I’m fooling myself here.
C’mon people, we are better than this. We need to start showing it.
There, I said it.
Now for a smile, with this very cute cat who I once hated, but who is now my best friend.
See? We humans have the capacity for growth. I know you can do it too.
Hope everyone else is having a better day than I am. Wish I was a drinker, I’d be pouring one already.
* Some folks masquerade as wise people. Ted Bundy thought he was wise. Would you take advice from a serial killer?
