Misrepresentation and why texting is not effective at conveying tone or emotion.

Far too many folks out there think if you know a person long enough you'll know what they say in a text, email, or chat. This is untrue... If you were to gauge the tone of this what would you say? Annoyed? Angry? Sad? Wrong on all counts. I am for lack of better words, dissapointed. I am a stickler for details, I am sensitive, and I am often never undersood properly. I have always had the issue of communicating the proper tone, evidently I'm on such a different way of thinking, I scare some. I do not like to express violence physically, but rather verbally. If need be I would follow through on what I say to prove a point, but I don't like being mean. I've suffered a lot in my life. I would have hoped most folks would see that I am a hurt person. I have the open wound of depression still fresh in my mind. Every harsh word, every mean action, and every glare.... pours salt in the wound and kicks me while I am down. I have been fighting all of my life just to be alive. I am thankful for the very air I breath, the food I eat, and my loved ones. I will keep on fighting until the end, but it hasn't gotten any easier. People think I have more issues than most but guess what? I'm just more open and honest about my past, present, and future. I guess that intimidates people. I hope this post does more harm then good, I seem to attract things unintentionally. Well, that's it for now. Peace!
