I wanted to take a second to take things a bit more personal and kind of shed some light on a post I wrote a looongg time ago. THIS post has seemed to cause a lot.. uneasy feelings in a few of my readers. I've had a few of you email me personally and tell me how it made you afraid to talk to me.
In case you didn't click the link above, I'll explain to you what the post was about. I wrote a post called "Honest to Blog: Words" a while back and I basically listed a few things I hear SO often from people who are trying to be positive or helpful but to me, I find them rude or annoying. I explained WHY I felt the way I did and I tried my best to really get across that I am not a person who gets offended easily... but I'm starting to realize that maybe my words came on too strong.
Please know that whatever you say to me (unless I can tell you're straight up being a turd)- I will not be upset or mad at you. If you've said something that made that list, please know I don't love you any less. I know that it's hard to understand things when you're not in the situation AND what bothers me may not bother someone else. I also know that a lot of that is just things people know to say or it comes naturally. I've been paralyzed for 2 years now.. so I've kind of got used to the most common things people say.
I wrote that post for me.. and also for people to kind of get a little look inside my brain. I never want any of you to feel like you can't email me or say hello to me. I do not mind talking about my spinal cord injury or even answering any questions you may have.. and I'm sorry if that post made you feel that way.
I love you all. Thanks for reading! Sorry for a random text post butttt I thought it needed to be said! Happy Hump Day, babes!
