No, I'm not mad.
I'm too busy being thankful that God saved me from a life of chaos and lunacy and trying too hard and always failing to be mad. Too busy finally finding out who I am - and that I actually like me- to be mad.
Too busy living life and smiling and finding what it means to be fully authentic. Too busy working hard and sleeping well and having energy and simply being to be mad.
Mad is what you tell other people so I'll look like the bad guy.
Okay, I'll be the bad guy. Mad. Unforgiving. Unreasonable. Cold. Uncaring. And all of the other things you can say about me.
It's clearly my fault. It always has been, right?
And I'm completely okay with that. You see, your opinion of me does not define me. What your neighbors and family think about me doesn't bother me. Man's assessment of me doesn't determine my value. Gossip and rumors and messages sent from "concerned" others have no bearing on the course of my life.
I walk in freedom with an Audience of One.
Go on, say what you say.
I know I am free.
