life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"

I can say just about anything I want to here….(but I did not check the “adult content” box when I signed up, so there are SOME restrictions!)

SO…. here is the most important thing I have learned from the recent elections…..
Although I rarely state my specific political views…I have NEVER argued, berated or rebuked others personally for their comments and/or opinions on line.  Responses I have received have been for the most part encouraging.  Most of my FB friends seem to appreciate unprovocative relevant quotes, but there have been others that have been rude, ugly, and personal.  I have even been chastised for not clicking the “like” button on their post. I am tired of being expected to listen to others opinions, but most are unwilling to listen to mine.
Instead of simply responding to others, I am influencing peace and understanding. I am writing, emailing and calling the people that have the ability to make decisions and change. I am always open to intelligent and yes even passionate discussions, but not the rude and ugly ones. 

My lesson.....I do not discuss politics with those that are incapable of hearing both sides of a issue, before forming a decision or an opinion.
