I apologize if my words caused discomfort or annoyance in others. I know this is a public blog. I know that ANYONE can see it. I don’t really live my life by censorship, so it’s never really bothered me to have this out there. I also know that one day I won’t be able to have this, out, in the world, being updated, so for now while my voice isn’t censored, I choose to simply speak from the heart.
How much is too much?
Did my last post cross a line? I simply posted about my honest feelings and what I am going through. I was met with some questionable responses. I took one, most likely a bit personal, because well, everything is is a bit personal these days and I was told I was overreacting. But at the time, and frankly still, I don’t think that I was. I purposely put my life out there because I know I am not alone in these issues, and while I love constructive (key word) criticism, I also think it helps others to know they aren’t alone.
I was then met with, that how I was overreacting meant that I was in fact making it seem like I was the only one who was going through something. I am not sure how point A got to point B in this other person’s mindset, but it did. I never once said nor do I believe that I am the only one with hardships. As I stated previously, what is most frustrating is that I don’t know why this is happening. I have so much in my life to take joy in and right now it feels undeserved, and pointless. That’s what makes this entire situation infuriating.
I am asking for grace. As TPWSNBN would call it, I need to be handled with kid gloves right now, which albeit mortifying to proclaim, its kind of true. I’m taking things personally because that is the only way I know how.
