It’s been way too long since I’ve blogged here —
After mediating the problem, I see now that when someone goes crazy-arsed stalkery on me I tend to do what I did when I was a little kid with no muscles or influence on adult sympathy: quietly pull back into the shadows until the whackjob’s steam runs off.
The realization makes me angry — with myself. What the hell am I hiding for? Mine isn’t the behavior that’s questionable, intolerable or socially unacceptable.
Solution? Overwrite my default settings for reaction/response.
No more hiding, kiddo.
