With Baited Breath....

I await an e-mail from the author of that letter generator site, answering my question if it's OK that I edited his letters in photoshop and added a black background. I assumed it was and maybe I was wrong. But now that I see that people really want to jump to the worst possible conclusions about other people, I guess I'd better check.

Y'all are totally right that I should let this roll off my back. Don't make it a big deal....

But it's terribly discouraging to me, this willingness, NO, eagerness to think the worst about someone. I realize I shouldn't let it affect me so, because I have also gotten support from corners I never expected. But yeah, it does bother me. I give people the benefit of the doubt. I believe everyone's just trying to do their best. And, I believe the world would be a better place if we all did that.

Aw, this is the price one pays for having a gentle heart. As I've told myself forever, don't let the bad guys (or moods) win.

Brilliant psychological advice, eh? Cheez, I sound like Dr. Phil.

Anyhoo, as creepy as it sounds, I had a dream about you Friday night. I've got to stop eating stuffed pizzas before bed.

I'm the same way--I have way too hard of a time just letting things go when someone thinks I was intentionally mean/wrong/bad.

But, honestly, the post by the other person just sounded like sounded had peed in her Cheerios that morning.
