Heh heh... an anonymous poster called me "chickenshit". The irony… - Jarrett Heather
Jarrett Heather's Journal

Heh heh... an anonymous poster called me "chickenshit". The irony makes me giggle.

If you think you know everything there is to know about me from reading my journal, please reconsider. I'm not going to disable anonymous posts because I like getting occasional comments from my dad and some of my non-LJ friends who check up on me. However, as always, hateful comments will be swiftly deleted without discussion.

Thank you for playing.

I kept getting anonymous comments on my only post flaming me. Funny thing, I turned on IP logging and they stopped coming in.

Chickenshit. Heh heh.

You make it sound worse than it was...

I read the comments and I think there is some truth to them and that they didn't seem hateful to me. You're just afraid of letting someone pointing out to all your friends what an ass you've been. Not only have you done that once to some poor unsuspecting girl, you've done that twice. When you told me that you just wanted to be friends that there was someone else in your life - wasn't that the Danielle girl, didn't you know back in September how you felt about her? So hurting this other girl was totally unnecessary..

I apologize for my trite response. It was really just an attempt to brush off the prospective trolls. You may not have seen the comments to which I was referring. I've been getting shot at from all directions lately.

I'm really not afraid of anyone thinking I'm an ass, otherwise I could have easily skipped that story altogether. I know it makes me look like a bad, thoutless, selfish person, and it leaves me open to easy (and often accurate) criticism.

Hurting that girl was totally unecessary. And sadly, she's not alone. There are five or six people I have to answer to for the mistakes I've made in the last couple of months. But this is still my journal, and it does not exist for me to defend myself to anonymous strangers who have no understanding of my life and the decisions I have made.

My relationship with Danielle, going all the way back to July, has had more extreme emotional peaks and valleys than anything I've ever gone through. It's been a confusing time, and it has caused me to make some serious mistakes. I've hurt people. All I can do now is apologize to those I've wounded, and hopefully learn from my missteps.

Re:

I saw 3 anonymous comments in your journal in the 2 posts. I did see the "chickenshit" one. If I remember correctly - it said you were too afraid to admit your feelings which led to other people being hurt.. or something like that. I kind of agree. I kind of thought from reading your journal that it was obvious you liked danielle. I thought that even before we went out. So I guess I can say its about time you actually admitted your feelings for her.

I would hope that he didn't really know how he really felt, because if he did.. he just dated all these other girls for no good reason, hurting their feelings and making it seem like they had a chance when they really didn't..
Besides I didn't say he had to admit it in his journal, I could have really cared less about if he ever admitted it in his journal. I don't really care if he documents his dating life for me to read. I don't have to rephrase anything because how it came out is how I meant it.
However, He made a post that I had something to say about. I didn't post in the original post, but this one because I saw the comments and wanted to say something.
He was dating someone else (not danielle) and leading her on when he really cared for danielle. All I'm saying is I'm glad he admitted it to himself, and spared the girl he was leading on any more pain in the future.
How do you know inside he hasn't admitted to it a while ago, and just hasn't posted it for you to read and comment on?
In his previous post he said that he spent the Holidays with the new girl he was dating. Which leads me to believe that just RECENTLY he has come to realize how he actually feels for Danielle..
If I had to explain all this to you, you obviously didn't know what I was talking about. If you don't know what I am talking about, you should stay out of the conversation.

It's time to end this discussion.

It's so easy to say, "oh you should have done this and that," but you have no idea what I was feeling at the time and what motivated my actions. You do not know where I'm coming from, and I have no desire to explain myself here.

Whatever

And let me just add that Jarrett did not JUST REALIZE how he felt about Danielle. Speaking as one of his friends, we've all known for months, honey. I think maybe you're the one who might want to stay out of the conversation, because you don't have all the facts. He's admitted PLENTY about her to the people who matter, whether he hurt someone else or not. He f**ked up, he's sorry, get over it. We can't all be proud of him all the time, but at least we know the story. You might want to sit this one out.

- Friend of Jarrett's.

Re: Whatever

I appreciate the support, friend, but no one knows the story except for me and Danielle. Not even my closest friends understand all that she and I have been through.

Re: Whatever

Duh?

I may not know the whole story as you say, but I'm seeing it from a different side of the wall. So unless you know where I'm coming from you need to sit this one out too.

Geez you people take dating seriously. Where I'm from people date to find out if they like each other and if they have enough in common and if there is a spark that leads to them taking their relationship further.

To me it seems like dating in Sacramento is one step away from picking out a China pattern. People date, they make mistakes and they get over it and move on. What they post in livejournal is what they choose to post, not an intimate portrait of their private lives.
