led astray

I'm sure some of you are pissed at me now. Oh well. You asked for it. I'm not so good at this having friends thing anyway because I don't like to hold stuff in and friends expect you to do that.


And just when I was having fun, too. It's a good thing I still have my manual in email!

Seriously, though. Maybe I got off easy because I'm not quite in the friends category, but I'm not hurt or offended. But I do hope your day gets better.
Maybe you were having fun, but I know I hurt a couple people's feelings.
And I certainly wasn't trying to make light of that, though I was trying my best to make your day a little lighter. And at least I got a giggle out of you.

I hope you can work through whatever it is that is going on up there. I just wanted you to know at least one of us wasn't hurt.
Thanks. What's going on up here is just every-day junk that's been piling up. My calm-deal-with-shit meter is low on batteries.
That's what you get for using them in the remote control. Or wherever. ;-)
So much to say. So few ways to say them. If you would rather, we can talk about this over email so everyone else can't read it. I am going to leave work early because I need to go home and curl up into a ball and cry. It's been a while since I had a good cry, and my job here ends this week, so my boss says it's fine if I leave early.
If you like. Just know that right now I'm going to a) feel crappy about everything anyway, so you aren't going to make it worse, and b) be able to address stuff in a disconnected-sort-of-way, because I'm at that stage of mental floaty-ness. If I say something wrong, I appologize ahead of time, but my social tact filters aren't working at 100%. I'll delete my reply and we can move to email.

Well, I'm not mad at you, but it sounds like it's none of my business anyway, so.... *hugs*
This is going to come out sooner or later, so here goes: nothing I have done has been your business for the last 6-12 months because I am not a pixel nor a deity. Why all of a sudden you give a shit again is beyond me.
Not sure what happened, but if'n you need an ear, I'm around.
Well, I know it doesnt really affect me directly so I'll just reserve you a Hug.

Well, here's the dealie-o, as I see it...

...people get the most angry when hearing things that they already know are true. A lot of it is fueled by guilt. I manage to piss people off a lot when I bother to open my mouth and say what I'm really thinking, I like to think of myself as "refreshingly candid" while others might call it "bluntly honest".

Personally I would like to know if you were pissed at me, and I'm glad you're not. I'm not one of those "fester for months" people. Life's too short to wallow in that kind of shit.

So...the point of my comment...I don't really have one, I guess. This too shall pass and when it comes down to it I'd rather be faulted for telling the truth than be blamed for withholding it.

I agree with you 100%. That's probably why I have a really small circle of close friends, and a wider circle of people I know. My bluntness is not always highly regarded. Those brave few who are willing to take it, and to give it right back, and still hang around, knowing that it's a way of loving, are jewels to me.
Here's my blunt statement of the day - I wish we were better friends. I think we get along so very well and it's a crime that we don't put more effort into getting together more often.
Can't argue there. Problems include several states, jobs, school, kidlet, my lack of transportation. :(
Let's work on it.
