So wrote Jonathan Swift. Those words wrote in the 1700's are just as relevant today. Who likes critisism? Who likes to be told some hard, unpleasant truths? Not me. But after my defensiveness has worn off, and Ive had time to digest the words, I try to see if perhaps there was some truth to it. I do not want to live with blinders on...I do not want to cease to grow because I do not want to face my own flaws, my own weaknesses and shortcomings. That is no way to live.
I am frustrated, and I keep running into a brick wall. People I care (or have cared) about cannot or will not stop and consider that just perhaps those dozens of people who have the same issue with them might perhaps have a point and some insight. Its frustrating, even when that person is no longer a big part of my life. Its sad when people lose out, even when they think they are not losing out. They are, I know it and it makes me sad to know what could have been.
Sorry to be so vauge... sometimes I want to say how I feel, and I have...but no good will come of it, as long as we as human beings would rather be right and alone than wrong in good company.
