I haven't posted much on this blog for two reasons.
1. I'm very busy.
2. I'm afraid EVERY TOPIC I want to write about will end up ticking someone off.
I recently realized that the fact that I'm sensitive to the idea all of a sudden, doesn't say anything about my friends or family suddenly being less understanding or open minded.
It has to do with the fact that suddenly I'm more aware of how my words might upset them.
There was a time when I thought the word "crass" was a compliment.
When hearing people declare that "Chrissie will say whatever she wants without apology," was something that I could be proud of.
And maybe I'm just getting old... but suddenly, being crass isn't on my list of aspirations anymore.
And being sensitive is no longer a "weakness" but something I'm glad to feel from time to time.
So here's a post, minus the post, because if nothing else... I'm growing up.
What made YOU realize, you'd changed?
