Song of the Moment



I probably shouldn't have this song on repeat, because it's hitting a little too close to home for comfort. It's damn cold and the snow and sleet wouldn't be hard to deal with if it would have actually been warm anytime in the past month, but it hasn't been. It's not even the middle of the month and the money's already gone and cars need looking at, of course.

The whole world acts like they understand, but they don't. There's a lot of talk about understanding others and accepting, but then everyone runs off and stupidly believes that everyone out should live their lives by a narrow and confining set of social "acceptability".

So many people are so busy pontificating, dictating that I should be ashamed of who and what I am. That I, because I choose to live my life the way I do, am somehow less than everyone else. That my choices are wrong because those choices make others uncomfortable.

I find it immensely hypocritical that so many people who claim a history of being ostracized, stake acceptance on ostracizing others.

Thanks! It was just too much news, not enough sleep and sunshine and progress.

You help a great deal just by reading and commenting and being completely awesome!

Seriously? I mean, Seriously?!?! If you're accepting volunteers for an ass-kicking brigade then sign me up.

You, my dear, are an Awesome Person. You are kind and loving, generous and compassionate. You're a keen observer and extremely empathic. You LOVE lots and lots and aren't afraid to show it. You're passionate about things and people and are incredibly quick to give a compliment. You've an awesome guy and a fantastic daughter and if your online personality is any indication then both know just how incredibly much you love and adore and respect and admire them.

You are far from "less" than others. In my world you are rather "quite more".

Thank you for your kind words.

I don't think ass-kicking is necessary, but I'll keep you in mind *grin* Thanks for the encouragement!
