4.22.03 - Captain’s Log; supplemental
Your friends are not out to get you. There is a fine line between fun little jokes and insults. Some take things way to seriously. They get mad when you do anything that you don’t agree with. Saying things like I have betrayed them, and that everyone hates them and they are just going to kill themselves. Heh. It’s called constructive criticism. Does the president kill everyone in his cabinet when they disagree with him? No, they understand that people have different ideas. The President does not sign offline before anyone has a chance to disagree. I’m afraid the idea of constructive criticism is to help each other grow. Weird senses of loyalty where friends must stick up for each other even when you know they are wrong does not help you grow. I don’t know where they pick this up, but stop. Friends are there to help you and to guide you along this wonderful shithole known as life. And we are trying, if you’d let us.
