I wouldn't worry about it, try not to take it personal. (Although that is understandably hard to do at times) A lot of seemingly once sane
people lost their minds after the election. I mean, truly lost their minds. It's sad to watch.
Yeah. I lost my mind. You are so right!
! Gah. All this time I've been on here, and I've never really grasped the fact that most
people are being sarcastic and bullshtiing MOST of the time!
I honestly did not know.
I thought that I could make a slight dent here. I honestly (despite being told to stop because it's useless and it actually hurts me more than it
helps anyone!) thought that my being here could make a difference....you know?
Like -- that story about the stranded starfish.
I loved that one (from graduate school)....a person stood on a beach surrounded by stranded starfish. The person picked up the starfish, one by one,
and tossed them back into the surf. One by one. There were billions of them.
So, this other person stood and watched this spectacle, and then approached the first person, and said:
"Why do you bother? It's no use; there are too many of them!! It won't make any difference!!"
And the first person picked up one more, and threw it into the surf, then turned and said, "It made a difference to that one."
But, yeah. You guys are right. I'm so happy (and grateful!) to be stopped, and guided, and corrected!! Thanks!
