If I let myself admit it, I think the wedding will be fine but I want to protect myself from previous crap. My family thinks they’re not accountable for the past, and that’s not only hypocritical, it’s also reasoning popular with criminals on death row.
If I let myself know it, I suspect some people really are jealous of me and that’s why “oversights” happen. I know, “never attribute to malice…” but that’s dismissive and rude in and of itself. There’s a real problem here with some local attitudes I’m encountering. Not among friends, but among colleagues in the local craft community.
If I let myself enjoy it, I am really starting to taste some real success by getting my personal message through to people who might not otherwise receive them.
