I’m A Bit Surprised

I’m a bit surprised. In my last post, “10 Reasons Most People Think You’re An Ass,” apparently some people found it a bit confronting and are therefore a little pissed off at me. Well shit, I thought it was “confronting yet funny,” but that’s just my high opinion of myself πŸ˜› Β The whole point of this blog was for people to reflect upon very inconvenient and uncomfortable issues without feeling judged (by me). I was hoping that by being open about my own short-comings, my own hypocrisy, my own humanness, that people would feel more comfortable to do the uncomfortable or at least think about it. I don’t in any way apologise, but I am just attempting, for those confused by my intentions, to clarify. I also recommend that you read earlier articles in the blog. I have not put myself on “higher ground.” I’m just standing on the floor with the rest of you. Good night.
And for the record, out of those 10 things, I’M GUILTY OF 90% OF THEM, even today πŸ™‚

    I loved your ’10 reasons most people think you’re an ass’ blog, and I really like your adjective ‘responsible.’ That’s definitely how I see myself with food, but I enjoy reading your blog as it does help to challenge me to become even more responsible. I’m doing really well, as I know how I used to eat, but I also know I still have plenty of room for improvement. Thanks for your honest blog. I think you’re doing a great job!

      Hey Caitlin, THANK YOU!! That is great feedback which is very encouraging for me. I’m about to return from my writing hiatus. I hope I won’t disappoint. Be sure to comment anytime…even if to challenge an idea or to present something new.
      Best of luck to you on being “more responsible.” πŸ™‚

    Choosing a single ethical framework that determines how everyone should eat is about as easy as asking Americans to pick the nation s best state. Strong opinions abound, to put it mildly. Similarly, principles that determine one person s food choices might not work for everyone.
