Daisy Posted February 27, 2008 Share Posted February 27, 2008 Whether in real life or blogging? For example, my family constantly sends me military jokes, political and anti-Iraqi jokes and it grates. I usually just ditch them. I've never told my parents or family or friends that I practice nonresistance due to my religious beliefs. And actually it is feeling pretty vulnerable to say that on here. Now if I were to tell my Pentecostal minister, true blue, good old American Republican father I was a pacifist he would probably freak. But I get tired of never saying anything. So do you ever speak up or do you just not go there?? Same with friends and homeschooling. I pass the bean dip all the time and more bean dip and more and.... When are you allowed, if ever, to say enough? Stop introducing me to every single person we meet as, "Oh yeh and SHE homeschools," like it is a dirty word. I'm much more vocal about what I believe and feel about things on this board than I am IRL. I guess sometimes I just feel like getting on a roof top and shouting out, "Hi, my name is Daisy and you've never really met me. So here I am with all my warts. Like me or don't, but I'm tired of putting up!" Am I nuts?? BTW, my real name isn't even Daisy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
