A Positive Message

THE other day a very dear friend, whose opinion I greatly value, told me that he had stopped reading my posts because they were too angry and bitter. This really bothered me, and I stopped posting for a long time. But then I talked to someone else, whose opinion I also greatly value, told me that she liked reading them, and that the anger and bitterness are part of what makes me what I am. And she's right. I get pissed off about a lot of shit. And I write about it.

There's plenty of places on the web where a positive message can be found. This isn't one of them.

to any readers out there, this is completely untrue (assuming I'm the person who's opinion is greatly valued by Zeique). Here's the truth.

Zeique would write all types of blogs. Stuff that pissed him off, stuff that was funny, stuff that was of interest. Then one day he stopped writing about anything but stuff that pissed him off and then all he started doing was basically write a one liner and a link or a video with no overview or introduction. Then it just turned into links about police brutality.

That wasn't how the blog started. If it interested me before, then when it changed, I lost interest.

Yes anger and bitterness are a PART of who Zeique is, so why is that ALL he writes about now?

Another clarification. Zeique asked me to help with some input on this blog which I did a couple of times because it was an all round blog and I liked to write light hearted humorous stuff about real current affairs. My blogs have no place on a blog that is COMPLETELY about anger and bitterness.

It's also very offensive ( a by-product of always being bitter and angry and just blogging about it as opposed to doing something about it) for Zeique to allude to the fact that I am scouring the web for "positive messages". I am not. Don't let him fool you.

There's plenty of places on the web where negativity and doom and gloom can be found. I'm just not one to look for it.

So there you have it.
