You know what I hate? A vague blog post full of muddy hints and impossible to decipher clues.
So I won’t write that blog post. I can’t write a frank description of why I’m feeling the way I feel or why it matters, so I won’t write anything at all. It’s maddening, isn’t it, to wonder what happening in someone’s life and to be excluded from knowing?
Tell me this, though.
When something happens in your life, do you extrapolate that event to the whole of your life? Do you see patterns where maybe there are no patterns? Do you say, “Susan looked at me funny. This indicates something serious. Everyone looks at me funny and what is wrong with me and will I ever have any friends? My whole life people have looked at me funny and clearly there is something fundamentally wrong with me.”?
Or do you just note: “Susan looked at me funny,” and maybe wonder what’s wrong with Susan and go on your merry way through life?
Guess which one I do.
(No, don’t. Because I will take it personally and no one wants that.)
