I am becoming less and less sensitive as I get older. Like many, and you may feel this way too, I have a life, and I am really busy. I have a family to care for, and pets I love. I have wonderful friendships that are important to me. There are ways in which I am trying to make a small difference in life, in my way.
So expending a lot of emotional capital on other people's politics falls under that lovely, and rapidly growing category: "Stuff I Just Don't Care About Anymore."
I really don't care what Meryl Streep thinks about the president. Nor do I care what HE thinks of her. I will let them duke it out on Twitter or whatever.
I know a lot of people who are REALLY into protesting. And that's cool, if you have the time and energy for it. I try to effect change in a different way, and if someone wants to excoriate me for it, I am OK with that, too.
But I am WAY over holding someone's politics against them, even if I think they are way off-base. I know and love liberals, and I dislike a few. And I know and love conservatives, and I dislike a few.
I am much more interested in who people are as people. What makes them tick? What do they love? Who do they love? Do they try to make the world a better place, even if it's in just a small way?
You are SO interesting to me. And your politics are not what makes you intriguing. You live. You love. You share your heartbreaks and your victories. You make a difference to people.
Are there people who are so vitriolic about politics that they are difficult to tolerate? You betcha. But walking away or turning them off is really simple and easy. So, that's what I do.
Now, about Dakota Jonson's hideous dress. and her attitude...lets dish.
That is ugly. Seriously ugly. Thank you, Dakota.
