Being as it’s officially the holiday season, most will notice that people are in a better mood. More gracious, more patient, just generally more pleasant to be around. I know I am. Despite all the crap that I have going on right now, I LOVE the holiday season. I’m not religious by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love the time of year for all the tradition that it holds and the fact that it brings people together. I think we should actually have it a couple of times a year actually.
Sometimes, this time of year (or any time of year, for that matter) doesn’t bring out any especially stellar aspects of peoples’ personalities. They will continue to go through life trying to make themselves feel better by putting others down. By trying to impart their wisdom on others in the most thoughtless and rude way. I consider myself lucky not to be one of those people and never will be. For all of my shortcomings, I know that I have a good heart and will always put others’ feelings and well being before my own. It’s how I’ve always been and hope to always be. I have no desire to intentionally make someone feel bad.
I realize that not everyone is that way. Some people don’t really care how they present things. Or maybe they just don’t realize how they come off. Yes, I’m fairly harsh about some things on my blog. It’s anonymous and no one that I write about will hopefully ever see it. As hard as I am on others on here, I am equally hard on myself and see myself pretty clearly. Good, bad, ugly and all else that embodies me. It always surprises me when someone feels the need to post a shitty comment though. A comment that has seemingly no purpose other than to try and make me feel bad. I would never do that to anyone. Others don’t live by that same mindset however.
Why this random post out of the blue when I really haven’t been posting much? Well I woke up this morning to this lovely message on one of my past posts from the beginning of the year:
There’s a reason you’re 43 and single. Ever think that it’s YOU’RE the problem, not the man? Just by seeing how you write you come off as someone who doesn’t act your age. You aren’t in your 20′s anymore. Time to grow up, grow a pair of ovaries and you’ll be lucky if you find a man!
The fact that they were nice enough to toss a happy faced emoticon on the end doesn’t change the tone of the message and I can only assume that whoever this person is didn’t even bother to take the time to read much of my blog at all. If they had, I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t realize that I KNOW I’m probably the problem. That I’m the only common denominator in my craptastic love life. While I do appreciate them taking the time to let me know that they think I suck, I’m pretty well aware.
So thank you, ‘KissMyArse’, whoever you are, for starting my day out so awesomely. I can only assume that you’re single as well ……… 🙂 (the emoticon helps, doncha think?)
