I Just Want To Scream

Tuesday, August 9, 2016
Our world is just so bleak and ugly right now. I suppose there have always been strains of bleak and ugly moments.. but now, its just so entirely consuming. You try not to involve yourself in the media, you try not to engage or ignite someone else's hate.... but then, you find yourself right in the very throws of it... standing up for what you believe is right. I was always raised to stand up for what I believe in. I plan to do the same with my own children. The problem with that is when others don't agree, it can get ugly. I'm not saying I expect people to agree with me just because - but i do expect my opinions to be respected. We can agree to disagree (that is my preferred option), we can talk about the world's issues endlessly, but for goodness sake please DO NOT antagonize me by trying to shove your words down my throat with the hope that I'll change my mind. I have let go of friends, I have allowed certain relationships to disintegrate, and I have found myself being more closed off then ever in the attempt to stand up for my beliefs. Was it worth it? That's what I asked myself... and you know what? I still believe that to be true. It is always worth it.
