Do you ever have those days when you're just not proud to be yourself?
Tuesday and Wednesday were very negative days for me. There are many things that are weighing heavily on me. Obviously, Prop 8 is one of them. I am also having all kinds of interpersonal issues with co-workers, one of which came to a head yesterday after I left work early for mental health purposes.
I have to constantly remind myself that not everyone is like me and that not everyone needs to be like me. There's an element of self-righteousness in me that I cannot stand. I really can't. I hate it when people don't accept me as I am, so why do I find it so hard to accept others as they are?
Don't get me wrong - I am very tolerant of other people's belief systems; this isn't really about that.
It's more about finding it in myself to be kind, because sometimes being kind to others who make me angry really is a lot of work.
I guess I really am a work in progress. I've got lots of unfinished spots and many rough edges.
Last night I played with these macros in Lightroom and found that the end products (and the process) did a great job of soothing the savage beast in me.
It's the little things, right?
