I'm happy that adults at my job (substitute teacher) give me positive feedback. I'm strict and kids are just insane these days. So I feel like a monster that won't just let go. I'm looking for jobs that aren't in the classroom. I had a near-breakdown two weeks into a long-term subbing job. For now though I'm still subbing. I haven't been doing well either, having bad thoughts. I'm better this very second, but I dunno.
Person C: “OMG! You’re a biased, low-information voter who believes in fake news!”
Turns out that person C reads only opinion pieces, articles, etc. and believes truth claims from the political team he already supports. And folks from all sides of the political spectrum aren’t immune.

Am I scared? I am terrified. I don't know of what. I know of what. I am terrified of humility. Oh. . . to claim that silly thing back. True humility. did I have it? To an extent I did. I did. I was humble. And then what happened? I don't know. Something happened. Something unknown. Some kind of a turning against oneself and I thought humility was a weakness. It could have been far bigger than all their assaults but do I have it, do I have humility in my skin? In my heart? Am I grateful? Am I angry? I really don't know. The prospect of going through alternating humility and anger . . . what hell it was!!! No. I can't resort to humility just yet. Must assert the ego first. Humility of one who does not have substance and forgiveness of a snake that does not have venom are pointless. People assume too much substance too easily. It has to be claimed first. Humility would come later. Must have enough ego to protect one's humility.
I've become wary of people who always claim 'good' intentions to avoid taking responsibility for anything--like 'I meant to turn up to work on time' or 'I meant to turn in my submission before the deadline.' Intentions mean squat. A person who always has an excuse for everything while claiming good intentions--his actions reflect otherwise--cares only about doing his own thing and getting what he wants but doesn't want to lose face or take responsibility for how his self-serving behaviour affects others.

I haven't gone out to the city in a hot minute, and normally by now I'd be feeling a little depressed about it. But I've been having fun with the right people in my own town to the point where I haven't missed it at all. Which is funny to me since just a month or so ago I was so sick of it here I was contemplating moving downtown. Now I don't know why I ever wanted that.
Just goes to show how much a different set of people can even change your view of where you're living.
