Here's a little Internet tip: If you feel offended by something someone else posts, remember two simple rules:
1) It's not about you. 2) If you try to make it about you, you'll sound ridiculous.
Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
