Oh, and the fact that I have close to four THOUSAND Medium articles that poke fun at my stupid shit. This wasn’t that kind of article. This was an article focusing on older women/men/people who see everything that’s WRONG with them and reframing it.

I think it has something to do with ego. Best of luck out there.
