I try. I really try to scroll on past when I see bullshit posted. I try to not get fired up about the news. I try to just turn the other cheek when I'm insulted. But oh my damn. It is hard AF for me to do that.

I am a passionate person. Ask anyone that knows me, and they won't deny that. My husband especially can attest that I rant and rave to him on multiple occasions about the news, "friends" and family being dicks online and in person, someone who cut me off in traffic, and so much more.

Friends, I'm not here to tell you that I'm a perfect person and in fact, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not. The Good Lord gave me this mouth and I use it even when my brain is telling me to hold back. Unfortunately, my soul is spirited and my mouth has no filter.

I don't go looking for trouble, but when it's brought to my doorstep, be assured, I will not back down.

My father is many things that I'm not proud of, but one thing he taught me was not to start the fight. If someone swings on you, make sure you finish it. If they're bigger than you, pick up a stick or find an equalizer.

I see my friends and family posting untrue shit all day long. Conspiracy theories. Untrue "facts" about presidential candidates. Things that make me roll my eyes, but I bite my tongue and keep on scrolling. Rebutting these things with actual facts doesn't make anyone change their minds; it only serves to make the divide that much bigger.

But, come straight to me with untruths and salacious rumors and I will not back down. I won't stoop to name-calling because I don't believe that helps the situation, but I will call you out on your crap.

Decency seems to be at an all-time low these days. WTF did it go? It was tweeted away in the wee hours of the morning when nobody was looking.
