Why I sometimes don't "play nice"

I am human and humans are a mix of good and bad.

I get angry sometimes.I express it in my own way, I have no desire to pretend what I feel is wrong.

I have spent many years tolerating the intolerable.
Biting my tounge and denying and stuffing away my emotions and thoughts that were not nice.

There is a purpose to anger ,sarcasm and the things that offend some people.

I think karma is horseshit.
It's definitely dis-empowering.

And I have no desire to be a saint.
Most people are not saints.

Yes I am happy when a repug dies.
This is because I hate fascism,I hate narcissists authoritarians and sociopaths. I think they are dangerous to others and to life itself. I have been very traumatized by the sort of monsters in christinazi churches and the republican party.

I cannot love what cannot be shamed and seeks my destruction.

I will not waste my empathy on people who have none.

I feel happy when a evil person with ice water in their veins ,and they really do exist,dies or is incapacitated. That way the harm they do is negated,finally.

The request to be nice take the high road ,has led to a sort of solipsism about people that does not mesh with how people really are. It can cause harm.

Sometimes you need to say what you say. Sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes it's cathartic.
One person's negative words can be healing and cathartic even if they are not nice twords a person.
No one has a right to tell me how I should feel or think.

I do not play nice with people who seek my or my allies ruin.
Playing nice caused how many republican administration's where our rights,democracy,this country was harmed and plundered?
So sometimes,it's ok to not be nice.

I do not share the belief in karma or that there is some metaphysical punishment for not being nice.

I treat others as they treat me.

I extend my hand in friendship if you bite my hand, I am under no obligation to not punch you for biting me .

And good for you, being true to yourself & honoring your genuine emotions.

Schadenfreude!

2. In this moment in time, when people all around me are getting mortally sick, and the extent

of that sickness is mostly due to the craven acts of a few monsters and their many, many ignorant followers, I cannot be wasting my energy on attempts at saintliness.

Saintliness is dishonest. It separates us from the emotions we need to deal with to successfully weather extreme tragedies. Some of those emotions are negative. I ain't no saint, and I don't want to be one.

I need my energy for dealing with what these people have wrought, and what it is doing to my loved ones.
