There are hot comments on Gaslighting Redux regarding people who hate me or get pissed off at me due this blog and May writes
“What if you’re just a naturally disruptive person? Like you just have this Uranus energy?”
I might be but I think it is more likely it is other who is naturally disruptED and disruptive. Because no one is contained here. It’s a big world and a big internet. If you come here every day or three times a day, you are CHOOSING to be disrupted.
I am like a rock. If you choose to smash yourself against it, you can’t call me a smashing rock! It’s not like I am out hunting anyone. I am here writing my blog, taking care of my family. If you don’t like me you can simply ignore me as many billions of people do!
The way I see it, I can only offend you once. It I offend you more than once it is because you are coming back here, choosing to be offended. If this is your goal, well it is going to be easy to achieve.
There was the one gal who read here and supported me for three years. Then I made a joke about Italians / mafia (I am Italian) and she came unglued. She wanted me to unmake the joke as she is sensitive to this and was offended. Well I am sorry. You’re sensitive to that, someone else is sensitive to this, pretty soon I can’t talk at all.
I wanted her to look at the piece that offended her in the scope of the several thousand published here; posts that she had enjoyed very much but NO. If I would not concede and take her opinion on this thing, well then fuck me!
Same thing happened just a week ago. Someone came across a two-year-old post. The advice I gave did not jibe with the person they (apparently) thought I was. Now how can I possibly control who you think I am?
Next thing I know I am explaining why I wrote what I did but again, I would not concede my position and that person… well I don’t know what they did but they not settle or resolve the hour long conflict (That’s how long I spent responding to them, kindly.)
I have come across astrology advice on the internet that I think is HORRIBLE. Know what I did? I clicked off. It’s really none of my business is it?
You can think I suck or you think I am delusional or whatever else you think I am but if you hang around, try to control me, fix me, educate me, etc. then I would say that you are the disruptive force but hey! I have a 7th house Uranus and could be projecting.
To me these “disruptions” are like someone seeing me on the street and telling me I need to change the way I comb my hair. Well come on! Change your own hair why don’t you?
Saturn (me) blocks the disruptive force (Uranus) from my convention. That’s why I think it’s funny when someone says they favor one side of an opposition or they represent it or that it is going to win. There is no ONE SIDE to an opposition.
Have you ever chosen to be offended?
