Why Do I Do This To Myself?

I am a person with very strong convictions on some things. I believe in the value system and that many Americans have forgotten what that even is. I also strongly believe in the morals brought to us by the Bible. God has the answers. We should listen to Him and what He wants us to do. It's not that hard. He gave us a handbook. But, for some reason I insist upon reading blogs by very opinionated people that I don't agree with. I don't know why I keep reading them. They just get me riled up and I feel compelled to comment and then inevitably I don't fully explain myself in the comment and they come back with a rude retort. After reading back over what I had said, their retort makes sense for what I said and I am left defeated. It's a stupid cycle and I don't know why I continue it. And why do I need to add more things to my life that will just raise my blood pressure? Why am I getting upset about something someone that I've never met in person wrote on their blog? So, I'm going to fix this and I'm not going to read these blogs anymore.

Lisa - firstly, big hugs. Secondly, I know what you mean, and I agree with you :-)

Also wanted to give you my blog address. It's a bit sad these days, but I will make it brighter soon, I promise.

Here it is:

I would like for you to read and comment on it. I have not shared this with anyone yet, but I am thinking of doing so soon.

Also - I still have to work on my profile etc, I will do that soon too.

Cheer up! :-)

First --- good job being brave enough to comment! Often times I don't do that because I don't like confrontation.
Second --- I'd probably agree with your moral, if it's riling you up and not good for you... maybe you should stop reading. :o)
