Getting on my soapbox!

I have reached a point where I am ABSOLUTELY fed up with some people. Now, this rant may very well expose me as a "lunatic" to some, but I really don't give a fuck. I am not the problem. You are. I am enjoying the free spirit of my Gemini personality. I am happy. I have lots to be thankful for. God gave me one life to live... and I am living it. I do not need any of your opinions on how I am living my life. If I want to put silly polls or pics on my blog... then so what? Who are you to judge what I put on my blog? Being mature means having no sense of humor? Since when? What a shame you take everything I do so seriously.

Let's run down a few things in case you haven't been paying any attention. I am out to my family and co-workers. I don't live in fear of someone finding out things about my personal life. I live on the family farm and work for the family business. The head knocker is my father. He controls everything. He has been controlling everything for my entire life. Don't you think that perhaps my "immaturity" is totally related to growing up in that kind of environment?

Now don't make me start wagging my tongue about a man well over 40 who can't come out the closet because he is scared of his own shadow. Who are you scared of? Your Mama? Your brother or sister? Who are you living for? Them or you? Rather than worry about my maturity level, fix your own self first. By the way, I came out to everyone 10 years ago. When are you going to grow up and do the same? And no... I am not taking this post down. You've done riled me up too much.

Have these people ever hard about people who live in glass houses?

Funny how people want to tell others how to live their life, how to act, what to do, what not to do. Like they're some sort of experts. I say live and let live. Be who you are and fuck anyone who doesn't like it.

I wasn't put on this earth to make people like me. You either do or you don't. It's a good motto.

Always remember, people most vehemently abhor things in others that they don't like about themselves. You hit the nail on the head here, Brett.

Um...where did that come from? I agree with you totally. You don't get a "do over" for your life, better live it the first (and only) time around.

Oh, good. I love the smell of blogwar in the morning.

You came out 10 years ago? Call you "Mister Late to the Party" already!!
I wouldn't take it down, either. Screw 'em if they don't get the joke.

My best two cents after reading what set you off and the following comments is you are both right. I'll skip the implications and finger pointing and just focus on you my charming friend.

Maturity can be a very stabilizing force in one's life. To me, maturity is learning to look beyond our petty base emotions (fear, anger, jealousy, resentment). If one truly struggles to be a better person, maturity must enter the picture at some point. But that is only one part of personal growth.

I think you might be confusing maturity with spontaneity. The latter being a very nice trait of yours as well as myself. Being stuffy or old before your time is not the same as being mature. Far from it.

As I've told you many times, you waste too much energy worrying about what others think of you. What YOU think of yourself is important. Yes, this is part of maturity. However, it does not make you "immature" in the derogatory sense. It just means you have room to grow as well all do. That is part of life.

On a completely different note, you need to send me your itinerary for next month!g

Bitch, bitch bitch, whine whine whine. You really are a sad little man. You sound like a spoiled 12 year old who didn't get asked to the county fair. "I don't care! It doesn't matter to me, anyway!" Sob, sob, sob.

Of course it matters to you. Of course it bothers you. You wouldn't spend so much time whining about it if it didn't.

You might be a nice guy in real life, who knows? But on this blog, you come across as a bitchy, superficial, egotistical putz. Don't be surprised when people call you out on that.

Thank you guys. You are the best. :) Isn't just so unseemly when I fly off the handle like that? I blame it on my coonnass blood. We get mad as a hatter quicker than you can shake a stick.

I am moving on from the situation. I said my piece. And I am not deleting anything from my blog either. Whatever was done is done. I am going to keep all the highs and lows on this blog. One day, I may look back on it all and smile about the humor in all of it.

Moby: I will resend you my itinerary to SF. I am flying in around noon on Thursday and I leave early Monday morning (9:30am I think). On a sidenote: As always... I respect your wisdom Moby. ;)

I never have any idea who's reaming you out? I'm guessing it's on another blog.

Regardless - man, people read far to much into what's put in these blogs. It's rarely - if ever - the whole story about a person.

In some cases, it's even a side of the person they don't normally express in person.

On top of that, arguing about matters of substance is great. Arguing whether someone is a poopy-head is kinda pointless, most of the time.

I've been reading your blog for about a month..its good, and you are cute, but the one thing that turns me off, regardless of the person, is narcissism. One or two pics of yourself is fine, but continuous poses of you time after time becomes comical and sad. Stick to interesting subject matter and makes it so much better.

Clayton... I have to get my money's worth from the photographer that took 300 pics. I am TRYING to use them only sparingly but it's so tough.

Wow... sorry to hear about whatever/whoever got you worked up. It's your blog, and you have a right to say what you want.

With that said, don't be surprised when someone shows up and writes their opinions that may go against yours. It happens to a lot of bloggers.

Stay strong, do your thing, and just keep thinking--something is bringing people back to read you. I'm sure it's more than just those pics of you (well, maybe for some, LOL).

I like the pics. The photog did a nice job. They're interesting, too. In some of them , you look like just a regular guy. then in other's you look like the cover of a XXX rated video. It's cool, really. You obviously worked hard to get in shape. May as well flaunt it as long as you got it.
