Like the title says, not everyone is going to get it and not everyone is going to care. An accepting that is crucial. Bloody hell, this is my reality and there are some aspects of it I still haven’t grasped, yet . I care though, I care because it’s my reality.It’s not the reality of my friends, my boyfriend, my boyfriends family, my family and or my employers. Some of them get it, some of them don’t, some of them care and others simply don’t and that’s okay. Some people, just can’t get somethings that they don’t understand or haven’t experienced first hand. While some people might get it, they think it’s not there obligation to care. An that’s where empathy and compassion steps in but that’s a post for another day.
This weekend has been a weekend of coming out of some sort for me. To be honest I think it’s one of the better things I’ve done to date. Nothing good came out of silence so what’s the worst that can come out of me journaling my journey. As much as I’d like to say I don’t care, my condition will prove otherwise. Anyways I digress no further. The past week has been turbulent but I need to say it’s slowly settling into some sort of normality. Before that though I was really taken aback by the reactions of a very small amount of people when my for lack of a better word breakdown happened.I was genuinely hurt! An I’ll tell you why, I’m not doing this for a pat on the back, validation or sympathy. This is just an outlet in conjunction with my therapy. With that being said, said people not once said to me ” how are you? How are you truly feeling?” I thought they’d exercise a bit more empathy? I thought they’d be a bit more sensitive? They weren’t and that’s not cool. However it’s taught me one of the many lessons I’m sure I’ll have to learn on this journey. Some people, as much as my condition cares about what people think. I need to find a way to accept you win some you lose some. I’m moving forward with good people, good vibes and energy. No room for shallow interactions and plastic smiles.Not everyone is going to care or get it and I get that. No love loss x
