Sometimes It Is What It Is
Often we see something or hear something and read things into it. Come on, you know you’ve done it, too! You’ve heard something and heard what you thought was subtext. Or you saw something written and felt it was a little too pointed. I have done that I don’t know how many times. I have had it done to me I don’t know how many times.
It’s frustrating! Sometimes I just want to scream, “Sometimes it is what it is! There’s nothing else to it! Accept it!” I don’t like being questioned. I don’t like feeling as if I need to explain myself. I just want to say something and let it be what it is. Sometimes (most times) I really do mean what I say. The only times I don’t is when I say I am ok when someone asks how I am when we all know I’m not. Sometimes I know they really don’t want to know and I really don’t want to get all upset trying to explain it. In general, though, I say what I mean and it is what it is. And if you want to know how I am…I’m fine.
