Anyway, yesterday evening I noticed that one of the folks I follow on Twitter had a short list of newcomers to Twitter: said that they were nice people, and asked others to follow them. It was a very short list: just a handful of people; and I was already following all but one of them.
The other one, I discovered, had blocked me from following her.
I was a little troubled when I discovered that I'd been blocked. But it's okay. That's the other person's prerogative.
Besides, over the decades I've noticed that I have that sort of effect on some folks. I make an effort to (at the least) avoid alienating others: but, like I say, I have that sort of effect on some folks.
Why, I don't know: and can't find out, since one way or another communication is cut off. Which is okay. Like I said, that's the other person's prerogative.
Does this mean there's something wrong with me? Probably. I was finally diagnosed with major depression - and am being evaluated for Aspergers, among other things. I've written about that before. (September 3, 2010, March 4, 2010)
Even if I'd been firing on all cylinders, though: I rather doubt that I'd have made a nice, normal, average, bland fellow.
A Church That's For Nice People - And Everybody ElseHappily, I don't have to like a certain sort of music, or have a particular set of table manners, or have the 'right' personality to be a Catholic.
Not everybody's alike: including the 1,000,000,000-plus Catholics living today.
We don't have to all have the same preferences or personalities. In fact, we work better as members of the Body of Christ when we aren't all alike. (August 26, 2010)
Look at it this way: the gallbladder is an important part of the body, but what good would a body be that was all gallbladder?
