Rage, Rage Against the Dying of the Likes

I get this feeling that people think I’m super angry or rage-y. I argue a lot on social media, but most of the time I’m laughing as it happens. It allows me to talk about issues I care about in a way that’s1 easier for me. It also gives me a chance to refresh my memory on those issues, which is also fun. I used to feel more agitated when I did it & would trigger migraines, blood pressure, and other issues. Now? I try to walk away or center myself long before that. But I probably still come across as Miss Super Bitchy Pants. 

Tonight one of my dad’s friends told me I was full of anger and contempt. He said he’d wanted to contribute $50 to the GoFundMe account, but my anger changed his mind. After he blocked me on Facebook, I found out he donated $25, which meant I couldn’t really thank him. So, dude who is friends with my dad, if you see this, thank you so much. I do appreciate it a lot. And I will try to be a shinier, happier version of myself. Sometimes. When it’s appropriate. Maybe. 

But right now I can say I’m definitely not angry or feeling contempt toward anyone.
