If I say something here that sounds completely, utterly ridiculous, please take it with a grain of salt. I could be PMSing. In fact, I'll probably mention that I am, so in which case just treat me with kid gloves.
Sorry I had to do that. I just think people need to be aware that I may say things I don't mean 100% sometimes, or get too worked up about something silly.
That said, I wish people wouldn't take something I said here - something that was discussed and which I thought was resolved - and then talk about how silly it is on their own LJ. I'm already prone to intermittent bouts of low (well somewhat low) self-esteem and I do tend to get easily offended sometimes, even if what is said is totally innocent.
I myself am not trying to offend anyone when I say this - it's more of a plea. Just because I'm not on LJ too often and don't get to read my Friends pages all that often it doesn't mean I won't see something that I assume is directed toward me - something that could hurt me.
And yes, I am not happy that I get offended too easily. I am quite hard on myself - always have been. I wish it was something I could just shed but it's not very easy.
I hope I haven't made any hard feelings or lost any friends here. I just don't see why something that I thought I had resolved has to be discussed again to make me feel like an idiot... unless other people were sharing my sentiments and the issue wasn't resolved. I worry too much about what other people think of me and I hate thinking that people consider me stupid or anything like that.
Well, that's it for this rambling mess. Again I hope I haven't offended anyone or made any enemies.
