[My initial intention was to only post this on social media, but after I wrote it, I decided to post it here first.]
If you’re reading this, you have probably noticed that my posts have drifted, bumping up against controversial subjects. As a result, I have either been directly or indirectly accused of being:
- a sociopath (meaning having no empathy)
- an individualist (who cares only of oneself)
- egotistical (and assuming I am smarter than public figures)
- a conspiracy theorist
- focused on insignificant things
- consuming and spreading ‘soul poison’
- just plain wrong
I will admit that I feel a sting from all of these subtle or not so subtle attacks. Not because I care so much about what others think of me, but because it is NEVER my intention to do something wrong or inspire negative feelings within others.
I now realize I am so far out on a limb, there is not much left to lose (socially and professionally speaking).
At the same time, I am letting go of the fear of sharing my thoughts. Despite blogging for years, I have always striven to remain as neutral as possible. Then, recently, my guides said to me quite clearly:
“Neutrality need not be your goal. Rather focus on being centered. There is a difference.”
They went on to assure me that it is impossible for anyone to be neutral.
If you are bothered by anything I share or write, you are welcome to unfollow or unfriend me, even in real life terms. Chances are, I am only going to be more and more forthcoming as time passes.
I feel that the only way for me to be of any service to others is to come out with more of what I am thinking about this crazy world situation we are living through.
If Facebook/Instagram suspends my account by way of censorship, you can always find me via my blog.
I thought about defending myself against some of those above accusations, but you know what, that is absolutely unnecessary. I know what my intentions are. I know what I bring to the table. I know my strengths and weaknesses. And I am OK with all of it.
