Give ‘Peeps’ a Chance

I’m trying very hard to stay positive and not waver in my faith in some folks as well as in myself. But today? It’s tough.

Let it be said that my faith in humanity is rock-solid right now. But on an individual level, well, let’s take it on a case-by-case basis today, shall we?

How do I put this delicately? I guess I just want to say that it *seems* like some of us hurt each other repeatedly — inadvertently, but on purpose too. You break my heart, time and again, and it seems that I can do the same to you just as easily. But I don’t want to be so bold as to surmise that.

I don’t want us to keep hurting each other the way we do, but it’s the one thing we can’t talk about. So if we don’t acknowledge it, then it never happens, right? Which means, how can you bring up something that doesn’t technically exist?

But enough about those who matter — the ones who make me ache because I care so very much — let’s move on to the rest of the universe. That said, God, you can get such a glimpse of someone from a two-minute conversation. My blood chilled.

I’m sure they walked away feeling superior, and well, have at it. Really. I apologized for an error of omission — and earnestly, at that — and while I don’t intimidate easily (and I didn’t, in this case), it’s been a long time since I felt so not-good after a “friendly” discussion.

The dichotomy is remarkable, really. The ones I *can* say anything to, I don’t. But the unknown entities? Don’t scare me, not one bit. Can’t we all just get along?!?!
