In which I throw a fucking fit
March 22, 2007

I know that it may seem that I'm making a huge mistake right now to various parties that think they may know more about what's best for me than myself. The problem with this is that I was the happiest and most comfortable I had been in ages. Until now. When people with whom I've enjoyed spending time more than anyone else for a number of years take a passive/aggressive stance on decisions I've made, it kind of pisses me off. And really, I feel they don't have the right to start making assumptions or judgments about my character from something that really doesn't have anything to do with them. I'm the displaced person right now - I'm the one that's going through this, and no matter what they say, I'm an adult and I am the one who has to make these life decisions for myself. I understand that when advice is given and not taken, it can feel a bit like an affront, but it's not. So, unless I have done something directly against these people that may cause some kind of harm, I would greatly appreciate a lack of dramatics and character assessments and 86ing and the rolling of the eyes and the overreactions and the passive-aggressiveness. Please. And if they have something to say to me, let them say it to my face, and stop this bullshit high school crap, and I can stop seething about this and get on with my life. It may not make sense to them, but things are making sense to me - a lot more than they have in a long time. And I can be happy again. Isn't that what friends are supposed to want for their peers?

Thank you.
