Hate and Love

Filed under: Personal — Jared @ 10:00 am

I started reading Violent Acres this weekend, and am not afraid to admit it; she’s funny, and much of what she writes rings true. She posted yesterday on not being afraid to be hated, and I thought it was pretty interesting (hence sharing the links with all -3 readers I have). I thought it was interesting, and worth a read. I will say though, for those of us who have day jobs, and for whatever reason (be it fear or requirement) have to interact with the world of posers out there, discretion is the better part of valor – you can’t be your real self at the office. Work life is incompatible with it; I know I would be fired pretty rapidly if I let everyone know how I feel about everything at every given point in time. To me, it’s how you are in your personal life that counts – with your friends and family. I don’t WANT to be friends with everyone, and so with most people a superficial “friendship” is fine. But with the people close to me, I try to be as open as I can be. For me, my blog is somewhere in the middle; it’s mostly about inane stuff, and I think I’ve been open about my feelings on some things. But I leave much unsaid, because it is not private, and not restricted to friends and family: anyone can google it (currently #19).

I suppose this post wasn’t really going anywhere; mostly a thought-dump. More later, should I not feel the need to self-censor (or should I not be lazy).



  1. There is and always will be a difference between work relationships and personal relationships. Why is this necessary? Well I just spent an hour of my day going to a mandatory sexual harassment meeting that is one reason. This kind of bullshit never happens when I’m at home relaxing during personal time.

  2. On a side note I hate it when you don’t post new stories to comment on.
