“Oh No She Di’in’t!”

(oh yes she did) Self-censorship goes against everything I stand for, but I had to take down the rainbow pancake blog. I was bullied as a kid and when I stepped away from my post and read it again, it looked a lot like bullying. I’m rethinking the things I want to accomplish with this blog and picking on people who offend me is not one of them (still, public figures and big corporations, watch your backs!). It’s a waste of my time and unhealthy for my spirit. It doesn’t bring anything new or interesting to the table. And in the end, we both walk away, unchanged in our opinions and beliefs (perhaps even more extreme in them) and likely more cynical than before. No progress results from it. Moving on …

    Well, I can only speak for me, but I DID come away changed from this. It hurt (really badly) to be judged and criticized so harshly for being myself, and I was compelled to ask myself if there was room for me to improve. My answer was YES! A thousand times yes.

    I know you disagree with who I am and what I stand for, but I want you to know that *I* know… I am flawed. I make mistakes. I say thing I shouldnt and hurt people who dont deserve it.

    Thanks to your post, I am really focused on being better.

    So, I thank you for removing it because it really hurt, but I thank you for writing it because it motivated me to take a closer look.

    Be blessed-
    Amanda
