Hi, how are you? It was a rough day on here. Some stuff was said out of anger, which is really just fear in disguise. Fear that something will change and be/not be like:
A. You want it
B. You think it should be
C. The way it used to be, which is an illusion because the past is no more.
D. All that shit
The world is on fire and for many this app is a respite from the madness. It is for me. And like it or not we have to share the space with each other. Most of the time, that’s amazing. But sometimes, it’s frustrating. Words fly, personalities collide, heads butt, etc. This is a great place to commiserate, but it’s not perfect and things get lost in translation.
One day, you will die and you’ll have spent one day of your precious life arguing about someone named Moop…or something else equally inconsequential.
I would encourage you to use this thread to sincerely reach out to someone you may have clashed with in some way today/this week/month/year and smooth things over. Like St. Francis says, it’s better to forgive than to be forgiven.
Or if you’re not ready and that is too intense, let somebody know you love and appreciate them. St. Francis also says, it’s better to love than to be loved.
Don’t hold on so tightly. Life is too short to be small.
