Overpopulation [Aug. 18th, 2005|08:12 pm]
Catherine Fischer
[mood |angryangry]

Well, I just received the first truly vicious response ever on this journal (see comments, entry before last). I wonder at the petty nastiness of the person who sent it, and wonder who beat him or her and locked him/her in a closet as a child. I wonder if being spiteful somehow makes him/her feel larger, in his/her small little world. I very much hope that he or she doesn't intend to be a vet, as vets require compassion and empathy. (He or she would do better as a doctor in human medicine, where bedside manner seems to be a skill long lost.) He/she probably beats his/her pets, too, and will someday end up in a lawsuit, like the one on the film we watched in our Practice Management & Jurisprudence course.

I have always gone out of my way to avoid making enemies, and have always tried to be kind and sympathetic to everyone. On a one-on-one basis, I genuinely like most people -- everyone has his/her redeeming features. Perhaps it was someone who envied what I was able to accomplish, or what he/she perceived I had, not knowing or caring what I had to sacrifice for it.

Mean little people. I wish there were retroactive birth control to remove them from our overcrowded planet. Everyone is better off without them, and the world is a happier place.

Whoever you are, I hope you understand, once you make your first big mistake, at the bitter edge of exhaustion, or in a haze of pain, as in my case. And I hope that when you seek comfort from your friends, you are laughed at, or stared at with horror.

Anonymous Nastiness

Probably not, but it was distressing to me to find out that there was someone out there who so obviously wished me ill, when I was totally unaware of it. I cannot think of what I could possibly have done to this person for him or her to be so spiteful.

Regardless, there's something so very, profoundly chickenshit about reading someone's sincere, heartfelt confession and then sniping at it from behind the veil of anonymity. This person obviously has some serious issues. I also have to wonder: if he or she really doesn't like me, then why the hell is he or she bothering to read my personal journal? Doesn't he or she have anything better to do than dig into the lives of others that have nothing to do with him/her? The answer, I guess, is probably not -- probably doesn't actually have any friends to interact with, so s/he fills hir lonely hours with petty malice. Pathetic.

Hey don't worry about "Anonymous"...in life it's so much easier to sit back & judge after the fact & say "you should have done this, you should have done that"! We all make mistakes, we all make mental "slips", we all cannot remember information we learned 4 months, 4 days, or 4 hours previously. The real lesson is whether we learn from our mistakes or not.

Let "Anonymous" have their opinion/say. I'm saddened that you may wish ill will to them only b/c of their "opinion/judgement" upon you. Their words mean nothing unless you allow them to cause the reaction that it has caused within you. Let the person have their judgement/ridicule...it is merely just that. For those of us who do know you...it means nothing. However, stooping to a level of retaliation/defensiveness against them is another issue that only you can decide how to handle next time when encountering the same situation again.
