I didn’t ask you to like me

I get it, I really do. I’m outspoken. I say what’s on my mind and I’m not shy about it. I don’t live in a world of sunshine and daisies and I don’t pretend that I’m something I’m not. That makes YOU uncomfortable. I’m comfortable with me though. I’m sorry you aren’t. But here’s the thing, I didn’t ask you to like me, I didn’t ask you to be my friend. That doesn’t mean that I’m not happy you are my friend, but it doesn’t give you the right to try and change me. ┬áIt doesn’t mean you can tell me who I can or cannot talk to or when.

If you don’t like that I post controversial things on my facebook page, then unfriend or hide me. But don’t tell me that using the word fuck three times in one post makes me sound like trailer trash. Here’s the deal, I don’t like that you post every recipe that you find nor do I like it that you share lies about our POTUS and I certainly don’t like it that you support a rapist. But here’s the deal, instead of posting on your wall or calling you, I’ve hidden you from my news feed. Because I didn’t want to hurt your feelings.

And you over there that decided that the “country is a church”. Here’s a thought for you. You aren’t a christian. You are the farthest thing in the world from a christian. I could say a LOT of really mean things about you here because I found out some really interesting things about you. However, unlike you, I won’t. I understand that you are mentally ill, that’s why you decided to tell me that since I didn’t believe like you that I deserved to be beat and raped as a child. I hope you get help. I really do. And I hope that you don’t get custody of your children back until you do get help. It’s best for them. Because really, if you believe that I deserved to be treated the way I was treated because I don’t believe like you do, what would happen to your daughters if they decided they didn’t believe the way you do.

What this all boils down to is simple. This is my blog, it’s my facebook page, it’s my twitter feed, if you don’t like what I post, then unfriend me, don’t follow me, don’t read what I write. It’s okay. I’ll be alright and so will you. Freedom of speech is great. Its guaranteed by our Constitution. Is my speech always pretty, nope it’s not. Is it how I feel, yep it is. I’m sorry if I’m too honest or real for you. I’m sorry that you want to live in a world of sunshine and daisies. I’ve never been lucky enough to know what that world is like, but honestly it sounds kinda boring. I’m not saying that everything has to be a battle or a controversy but it’s not always happy go lucky either. Life is real, it has it’s ups and it’s downs, we have good days and bad. I can promise you this, as your friend I will be there for you during those good days and those bad. And I will never look down on you when you are having a bad day or when you feel the need to scream about something, even if I don’t agree with it. I will have your back. THAT is what friendship is about, not trying to change someone.
