Do Over

Bah. I tried to pontificate on something this morning and I realized after one comment that the post was NOT written well and maybe it came across a little self-involved (I mean, I am self-involved, but my point was to be the opposite) and I remembered that writing blog posts at 3:30am does not always mean GOOD content. I’m also off this week just in general. I’ve made some frustrating mistakes on a personal level and I’m overwhelmed with catching up on my domestic life after being gone for 4 days and there’s soccer and swimming and Eliah is getting his wisdom teeth pulled today and I’m not there…so…I’m just frazzled. And my post this morning did not convey what I was trying to convey. So I put it in draft mode for another day.

Let’s be kind to each other today, okay? Some are carrying around burdens you can’t see.

    I’m sorry. It wasn’t my intention to be unkind–I’d hoped to be the opposite, simply because I identified so strongly with what you said. Please know I’m sending you lots of virtual hugs/ good energy/ positive vibes/ or whatever else you want to call it and I hope things become easier (and E’s extraction/recovery goes well). Seriously, I’m sorry.

      No! Don’t fret! I’m just feeling VERY vulnerable today after yesterday’s guilt issues and I re-read my post after your comment and realized that I was making it sound like my actions affect the rest of the world more than they do which kinda missed my point about Guilt without God so I thought I’d give the topic a Go on another day when I wasn’t still feeling so guilty about screwing up yesterday. I’m glad I re-read the post b/c it reminded me it’s a topic I should write about AFTER I stop feeling the guilt πŸ™‚

      One more time to make me feel better πŸ™‚ This is ALL ME! Don’t fret. Your comment did nothing but remind me I do better on complex issues if I’m looking on them from a few days in the future instead of when I’m still buried in the mess. πŸ™‚

        It’s taken me a few days to come back, but I just wanted to tell you that I totally love you (in a non-creepy, fangirl way) because of your kind heart. You didn’t have to take the time to respond to me, especially in such a nice manner, but you did–and I appreciate it. It’d be awfully easy to blow off what I said as a “hater, whatevs” moment, but you didn’t, so thank you πŸ™‚

    Hey Kim. I hesitate to give advice on the internet but here goes:

    Remember you are awesome and cut yourself a little slack.

    Love,
    Laura

    I read your post this morning and thought it was perfect and spot on. It articulated a lot of how I try to live and it didn’t make you sound self-involved – just self-aware and humanistic.

    Hang in there! You’re the awesomist and everyone has bad days!!! You ‘re already kicking my butt because I kind of don’t care about domestic issues until things get so bad I worry about the headline that could be affiliated with my house… Like “Family lived with two-week old dishes in the sink and the carpet was three inches deep with toys”

    I read the earlier post and I didn’t find anything wrong with it.

    I have two points to make:
    1. You are too hard on yourself and should ease up. I think a lot of people are less sensitive than you (not a criticism!) so probably do not see any issue with what you did.
    2. This is YOUR blog so if there is anywhere where you can be self-centred and have the universe revolve around you it is right here!

    You are an awesome person and should look at everything you do well rather than fret so much about the small mistakes you make. None of us are perfect!
