The Rocky Places
by Jake McPherson
I’ve been through a rough patch recently on several fronts. I’ve been told to get a thick skin. I’ve decided I don’t want one. I like being sensitive. I like feeling. I want to be accepted as such.
I’ve been told to ignore those who mistreat me. I’m sorry, but that’s self-censorship. I won’t buy that. I will not remain silent to protect my peace of mind. I should be treated with respect simply because I’m human.
Abuse me and expect to be shown your own behavior in no uncertain terms.
And don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
