A letter to a few people:

To whom it may concern,

Do not try to get into an argument with me, especially when you don't necessarily know what you're talking about. I do know what I'm talking about, which is why I'm talking. I won't say anything if I'm unsure of my opinion or information.

Do not twist my words, or try to make it seem as though I am saying something that I'm not, because I'll call you out and make you look stupid.

Do not pretend as if you're above an argument or discussion if you bring one up with me. I will continue to discuss it and show you that I know what I am talking about.

Do not gossip about me. I will find out, and I will call you out. I am not afraid of a confrontation. I will do my best to avoid one, but if you choose to bring it upon yourself, then that's your own fault.

Do not pretend to have all the facts. You don't. Neither do I. Everything is biased, no matter what you say. You're going to favor one way over another, even the slightest bit.

Do not talk about my family or friends. I will not give second chances. I will say something to you, immediately and in front of whomever is around.

Do not verbally assault me when children are present. I will calmly remove the child from the situation and come and find you. It will not be pretty.

Do not judge me just because I don't necessarily have the same opinions of you. I'm not judging you. I may think you are wrong, but I will not stoop to name calling or bringing up irrelevant topics to try and prove my point. I realize that you may do that, but I will not and it just makes you look silly.

Do not try and get people to turn away from me. If you do and succeed, I'm not going to be upset, because I do not want to associate with people who are so easily swayed from being my friend. I prefer to surround myself with people of substance, not shallow pools.

Do not fish for compliments. If I think you're awesome, I'll tell you.

Do not treat your husband like crap in front of me. It will not make me think that you're in charge. It will make me think that you're a jerk, and you're husband is probably unhappy. I am not impressed.

Do not brag about how much money you have/spend. Again, I am not impressed. I do not care about designer anything, so your jeans, purses, earrings, clothing, etc...don't really do anything for me. It makes me think that you are unfulfilled in life and try to fill that void with material possessions. Try taking up a hobby or doing something good for the community.

Do not try and take advantage of our friendship. I will only bend so far, and after that, you will be left without a friend.

Do not accuse me of being something that I'm not. I am a lot of things, but if you're going to call me something, you had better have a rational explanation of your accusations, or I will tear you a new one.

Do not steal from me.

Do not be fake with me. I'd rather see who you really are, rather than waste my time to find out you're not who you pretended to be.

Do not lie to me. I'd rather hear an ugly truth than a pretty lie. And I will find out, so it's not really worth your time, nor is it worth the time it will take me to call you out.

I think that's all for now. I'm sure there's more, but I'm tired, and these cover a lot.

Hope this clears up any confusion about my thoughts and feelings.
