A very special person asked me, why do i still wanna be friends with people who publicly mocked me for political reasons. She asked me why i didn’t fire back.
The answer is because they don’t know any better.
They forgot that way before they even mention the word “politics” in their conversations, I lived it. I know more. Seen more. Met more. Understood more.
They speak as if they’re morally better than me, and so their truth is the truth.
But my eyes saw more than they ever can see.
Most importantly, I forgive them & my decision for not confronting them is a decision based on the unity I plan to keep after the election.
I care about how they feel. I can take the heat. And so I walk away.
