Went to my doctor's for my usual, yearly checkup.Nurse asked me the usual questions, including two new ones. 'How often have you felt depressed in the last 30 days?' and 'Do you have things you like doing?' It disturbed me that I actually had to take time to think about answering both.
When you are young, the sky is full of stars. As you get older, the stars being to wink out, one by one. Now, I stare into the darkness, searching for a glimmer, a flicker, anything. I suppose I should just forget the search, but I'm too stubborn. The occasional flash in the edge of my vision, gone when I turn, they frustrate me, they tease me, the give me.... hope.
Remember, the villain is never the villain in his or her own eyes. Try to understand what is motivating them, that way you can attempt to reason with them, and if that fails, you can terminate them without hate.

Well, instead of bitching about how lousy this day/week is/is going, I'm going to say... So far, not bad. I do not say that a challenge to the Universe at large, it's just an observation. So far, not bad.
To anyone who thinks that because I do not actively support your cause, I am a bigot or a racist, or, or, or. I may not respect, or agree with, your opinion or view, or cause, but I DO respect your right to have it. In return, you must respect my right to disagree with you.. I will not attack you for your views, so do not attack me for mine.
To anyone who has ever cried 'Cultural Appropriation' or 'Freedom from Religion' or "Traditional gender roles'... Are you so insecure in your own identity and beliefs that the only way you can validate yourself is by invalidating other's choices? Believe what you wish. That is your right. Just don't denigrate others for believing what they wish.
Not particularly enjoying being alive at this time. Maybe things will change. Not certain I care one way or the other. <shrug> Not feeling stupid, so maybe a part of me cares. It's something I suppose.
