Not Silent by Choice
I haven’t been blogging a lot lately despite having a ton of things to say. I’ve observed some awful, selfish behavior from someone I was trying very hard to respect. I’ve seen someone I care about, despite their best efforts to affect positive change, repeatedly get jerked around and shut down by the ones who need the help. I’ve come to understand why someone else exhibited such poor behavior and judgement (and for the record, understanding the why doesn’t justify the behavior).
I’ve seen a healthy combination of both the best and worst in people. What’s sad is that the ignorance, arrogance, unwillingness to change, and inability to accept reality — that is what is going to win out. And ultimately, I’ll get to see more people I care about shut down and check out, which is emotionally exhausting.
So what’s why I haven’t been sharing a lot lately. I have a strong sense of logic, and I’m having a hard time processing some of what I observed, because it makes no sense. All I can do is sit back and watch this car wreck happen in slow motion.
I’ve lost a couple of followers, undoubtedly due to my inactivity as of late. It’s unfortunate, but it happens, and there is nothing I can do about it but try harder to keep the content coming on a regular basis. So I apologize for my silence, but it’s not by choice.
