My ability to write a post without offending someone has gone from slim to anorexic and seeing a nutritionist.
I've always offended people. Not usually intentionally (but sometimes: and I won't apologize for it, either, Scarface). I say what I'm feeling without thinking about how others will receive it. And I'm OK with it. It's a part of me and I've given up changing myself because I'm too stubborn to allow that. But other people aren't OK with it. I consider brushing it off a character trait everyone has and forget that being
So I've got some options here: (a) Stop offending people, or (b) create another blog and only send the URL to strangers. I would think the latter option is the most logical here, but that's because I don't change, so (a) is a non-option. But then, how could I do that? I mean seriously, how am I going to get email addresses to strangers? Even if I could figure that out, then I wouldn't have any blog readers at all. And my readers are why I blog. That and because I can't afford a psychiatrist.
So I'll go w/option (c): who cares! And I'll keep blogging. Because I love it and how dull would life be w/o a little drama thrown in? Life is too short to agonize over that which you can't control. And life is best spent not worrying about what other people are thinking.
