That is my new focus going forward, too. It literally PAINS me to read FB posts from high school buddies who are super conservative now, because every post feels like such a personal, and hateful, to be honest, attack.

But I *KNOW* it’s not, in my thinking parts. I *KNOW* that it is just them stating their world view, the way I so casually state mine, all the time, never considering how that world view feels to them.

I HOPE it doesn’t feel hateful and like I’m attacking them, but I really don’t know.

It is time for us to find a common ground. Because divided, we are never going to get through this intact.

There has to be some way to turn this shit and soup sandwich into something that seems more like a gift than a curse.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
