It's, of course, far easier for me to do so in writing, so I tend to jump into internet debates quite a lot. I don't really want to, but JFC I can't seem to help it.
I wish I could keep my mouth shut. I wish I could turn a blind eye.
But I can't.
Because I've been bullied. I've been almost fatally wounded by my life experiences (yay suicidal ideation. Always a fun time), and there was no one batting for me when it happened. I wonder if it would ahve been so hard if even one person stood up and spoke out. I'll be damned if I stand by and let someone else experience what I went through. So I step in where I can.
It gets my blood up, watching a bully at work, but that high blood causes a lot of problems. It alienates people I love very much. Though I love them, I cannot sit by and let them be hurtful and damaging.
It would certainly be easier for me if I kept my mouth shut. And I'm tired. I'm so tired of fighting.
So why don't I just stop? Why don't I shut my mouth and move on.
I really can't tell you. I don't know.
All I know is that I can't shut my mouth when I see injustice.
It's certainly not winning me friends. Le sigh.
I'm off to work. Ciao!
