I feel like today has just been so full of stuff. There are about 72 things I want to post, but I am going to go to bed because it has been an emotionally exhausting day and sometimes you just have to say fuck it and crawl into bed and hug your special pillow tight and put all things off until tomorrow.
I will say that, as jarring as it sometimes is when it happens, I’m super grateful for those times when people perceive things differently from how I do, and feel comfortable saying so to me. I sometimes feel like (and this is going to sound disgustingly self-important) people don’t like to challenge my opinions or offer counters to my thoughts. I am not going to pretend that I don’t know I’m a smart person. I’m not going to be all coy and demure and “teehee why would you feel intimidated by lil ol me??” Because that’s a load of disingenuous crap. But I am going to say that if you have a different point of view, I hope you will feel that I am a safe person with whom to share it. I’d like to think I am open-minded and considerate and don’t attack people who offer a contrary opinion. I’d like to think that I say often enough that I want to learn from others. I’d like to think that no one will ever feel like the cons of sharing their thoughts with me outweigh the pros.
On that note, bed. Pillow. Sweetest dreams. Wishing the same to all of you.
I have never found you to display any of those negative behaviors. In fact, the way you expressed yourself way back when (on Carter’s thread debating whether G+ should offer the option of stating orientation in our profiles) is what caught my attention and led me to circle you in the first place. :)
