I'm going to post some real writing in the near future, but it took me so long to get this up and running that I am out of time for tonight. Although I will say this... I've been mulling over something that I heard a therapist say at work the other day. The patients were discussing how others instigate them and attempt to upset them. In response the therapist said that responding to such persons is like "wrestling a pig... you get all dirty, and the pig has fun."
I've been wrestling an abundance of pigs... people and things that seem to have fun by watching me get dirty. I'm getting rid of these pigs one by one... more on that tomorrow.
