Well, what? I said, “With all due respect.”

I wonder if anyone can guess where that quote came from.

Someone decided that was important for me know that sometimes I say things that are not what “normal” people would say. First off, “normal” is subjective and second, I’m not “normal.” . . I said . The fucking cat is out of the bag.

Normally I would feel guilty and/or bad that my words were misconstrued, and I’d spend waaay too much time trying to explain what I really meant, but not today!!!

I will be damned if I let someone make me feel bad for speaking my truth, especially when was coming from a pure and vulnerable space.

At the end of the day, some things just aren’t our problem. Some people are just going to hear what they want to hear. But nothing is worse, when someone tries to mansplain your words back to you. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Am I sad things crashed and burned? A little. ☹️ Am I sorry? No. 🙅🏻‍♀️

As the great Oprah says, “When people show you they are. Believe them.”

I took some time off for a quick self reflective break, and went dark. I think I’ve wrapped my head around it, so here I am. ☺️

Thanks for checking in. 😘

Good for you Angel. No one can be all things to all people. And no one can be the perfect communicator; particularly, when the other is a poor listener.

That’s the problem with communication if the listener is projecting.

And yes, @justaguy (and you) for the win re: them Daddy vibes 🥰

If there are any long-term benefits to acting or being construed as *normal*, they have eluded me. The words Shakespeare put in Polonius's mouth 500 years ago still resonate with truth:

This above all: to thine own self be true
And it must follow, as the night the day
Thou canst not then be false to any man/Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!

Exactly. Thank you for the kind words. 🥰
