Well, it’s Confession Tuesday and again, I’m writing off the cuff. Had ideas and issues I thought about sharing, but I’m a procrastinator. To Carolee, when you get your shit together, teach me how.
I joined Confession Tuesday because I wanted to get to know the women I’ve been reading better and not because I wanted to fess up about my flaws. Besides, in my mind, if I’m willing to tell, then it’s something I’m more or less okay with you knowing so how is that confessing?
I am always wanting to bend the rules (and often do).
A decade later, and there's no shortage of the misunderstood poets. The confession: After ten years I am less tolerant of whiny wannabe poets.
While I despise censorship, I find myself self-censoring more now than I did when I was younger ( I have to for my own sake because I really don't like myself when I go there). I thought you're suppose to mellow with age. So what's wrong with me?
Deb wrote that she's not that nice. Ditto. It's not that I believe either of us are not nice people rather for me, I have realized I have almost zero tolerance for what I think is bullshit. I really dislike phony people, braggers, narcissists and whiny adults. Especially the last. Sometimes I want to smack them and say, "Grow the frack up! Get over yourself. Who hasn't been wounded, disappointed, abused?"
