Sitting here alone on a Sunday afternoon, I’m feeling a tad contemplative.
Looking inward, I ponder the uniqueness that is ME. What do I think is something about me that is GOOD, and something that is BAD?

My open-mindedness

I consider myself to be an extremely open-minded person. I hold no malice in my heart for anyone based on their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, nationality, social-standing, or any other superficial characteristic. I hate bigotry in all it’s forms, no matter who it’s directed at. I could have a million bad experiences with folks who all happen to be “____” but that would never lead me to believe that ALL “_____” people are bad. I give everyone a fair shake until they do something that proves they don’t deserve it.

Whatever color your skin is is irrelevant to me. Have sex with whomever you want, as long as you’re all consenting adults. Pray to God, Allah, Jesus, Jehova, Buddha, or Oprah, I don’t care, as long as you’re not blowing up buildings or sacrificing small animals. I’ve very self-centered when it comes to my approach to the rest of humanity. My only concern is are YOU cool with ME? If the answer is YES, then I’m cool with you.

My inability to forgive

I can hold a grudge forever. I definitely have “one-strike & you’re out” policy. If someone does me wrong I will not forget about it. Ever. I can keep the flames of hatred burning in my heart for a lifetime. It may not always be @ the forefront of my thoughts, but it’s back there.

Heck, just out of the blue some memory of an incident that happened to me in 9th grade will pop into my head, & I’ll want to kick that person’s @$$ today.

I know this sort of attitude is unhealthy, & I need to learn to just let things go, but it’s hard. I’m working on it, though. Really. I swear.
