You know sometimes I wonder why I write so openly, make myself so vulnerable here when I know there are people out there who will asess my life, and the way I choose to live it, and weigh in with their judgements and opinions. I've tried to filter this out as much as possible by disabling the anonymous comment feature but there are obviously ways around this.
It's not like anyone was vicious or overtly cruel, although they were pretty harsh, I mean they seemed to be coming from a place of wanting to do good by kicking me into their version of what they think I need to do to get my life in order, but no one, NO ONE, ever has the right to judge another human being, and kick them around "for their own good" when they haven't truly gotten to know that person, lived in their shoes, or specifically received permission to do so. I can't imagine just hopping into someone else's journal here and calling them "a sweetly facile, pathetic loser to whom the world owes a living because you are so nice and good and everyone picks on you," and then telling them to, "Grow a spine and do something for yourself." How ironic that this person who says she or he has been reading my journal for a year says all of these mean things, supposedly in order to help me, from behind the safety of a blank journal, and right in the midst of my trying to do the very thing she is accusing me of not doing. It's just bizarre and pisses me off and makes me feel unsafe here.
It's scary how much a person can learn about you by reading your journal, how easily they can access your vulnerabilities and cut right to the heart of them. Who is this person and how do they know that I don't have anyone in my life who is standing up to me and "bitch slapping" me? Have they been in my sessions with my psychiatrist and my therapist or on the phone with my friends? All they have to go on is what I write in here and all of that is controlled and filtered, even though I try to filter as little as possible. Man, who needs this? Is it really worth being so totally vulnerable and open about every aspect of my life here when I get comments like this?
By the way this is day five of my not using my very small amount of pills to self medicate. I also went to my first NA meeting. Some of these people came up to me and said, "What are you worrying about? You're only taking a half of a pill? I was able to wean myself off of them when I was taking eight." So I can't win for losing. In NA I'm not fucked up enough, and here when I make a committment to change something about myself I'm labeled a "pathetic loser." Judge not lest ye be judged, and that's all I've got to say about that God Damnit!
