Crazy Question: Should We Filter With Friends?

Hello My Crazy Loves!


So, today, I think I made boo-boo. I know what you're saying, "I thought at Crazy land you don't care who you piss off" which is true but I think this time I made a boo boo.

To say that my life after college has been crazy would be an understatement; from interviews, working, networking, researching, writing, eating, sleeping and bitching, it's been a crazy world. However, I must say I am proud of myself and what I'm doing. I am an avid believer that you have towards your success rather than wait for it to come.

I am very proud of myself, so you can imagine how annoyed I am when someone tries to trample my happiness with a depressing sorry.

I know this guy. We use to work together a few summers ago and I consider the dude my homie. He's around  my age range and, like every recent graduate, is depressed about the economy and finding a job. HOWEVER, every time I would mention something that I am trying to do, he always respond with,

"Well, it's easy for you, you're a woman."

Now, I know it's hard and I must admit it is challenging for men to find a job at times but every time I would mention something, he would always respond with that very thing.

However, it seems as though I reached my breaking point. I mention some great news I received and I was soooo happy. So, as anyone would do, I shared it with the social media world and sure enough I get an IM,

"I really should do a sex change or something. Lucky you."

I don't know if it was because I didn't drink any coffee or if my feet were hurting in my heels but.....I.....SNAPPED!

It was as if I was possessed by the crazy woman in me and began to reply with vengeance,

" YOU KNOW WHAT?! THE REASON WHY I AM MAKING MOVES IS BECAUSE I AM PUTTING MYSELF OUT THERE AND DOING WHAT I HAVE TO DO. YOU LAZY MOTHER FUCKERS ALWAYS FIND AN EXCUSE RATHER THAN ADMIT THAT YOU'RE NOT DOING SHIT TO BETTER THEMSELVES"

It was not until today I realize what I wrote and I feel bad :-(  Though, I do feel he is a lazy mother(shut yo mouth), I think I could have presented a tad bit better....

So, I poise the question:
Should We Filter With Our Friends? Though some might be depressing, should be filter the things we say to be understanding and sympathetic?

It is a hard to for any graduate but I mean, I'm human, right???

SOUND OFF!

I am a person that is to the point and I usually don't hold my tongue for no one. I have friends that I can be real straight forward with and don't have to filter anything that comes out my mouth. Those friends know I mean well when I say those thing. Then it's those folks that are kind of sensitive about some ish. So I tone it down and put it in their language. I can't stand ppl that complain about ish allll theee time. I believe you were right though about what you said. Instead of complaining they should use that energy to get their ish together. Nothing is going to be handed to them! point. blank.
