Warning: Cryptic post is cryptic
I have people confide in me in game, not all the time or anything, but people tell me things and I’m not a gossip so it generally doesn’t go anywhere. Sometimes I even forget what it was they told me! I like being someone people feel comfortable telling things to and giving advice, however lame it may be (I don’t usually feel like I have the ‘right thing to say’). But sometimes it bites you in the ass. And it did. *rubs behind*
Part of my philosophy since server transferring has been to ‘stay out of it’. I theorize that part of what worsened the dramaz I’d seen/been involved in in the past is my tendency to want to make it all better, and in the process have quite possibly made it worse. I have no idea if this is true, but ya know…I tend to heap blame on myself a lot. I’m an adult, and for the most part my guildies (past and present) are adults. They should be able to work things out amongst themselves, but sometimes I feel a cooler head is needed. In the most recent kerfuffle*, I’m armed with information from both sides and have some feelings of my own I’d like to get out but is it my business to do so? I was even hesitant to write anything at all because I know guildies read my blog and I want to keep my posts classy and not name and shame or cause even more trouble by airing dirty laundry, so to speak.
I’m a bit unsure of what, if anything, I should do. I feel the situation could either fix itself with a conversation between the 2 parties….an honest and calm discussion of the issues *now* before things sit and brew for even longer and explode in a messy and dramatic fashion, or explode (now or later) with multiple people possibly affected (myself included). I understand where both sides are coming from and feel frustrated that I can’t really vent my true feelings without potentially hurting someone’s feelings. UGH. This is why I really tend to say nothing much of the time….Or it could even be all better now and I’m making mountains of non-existant molehills. I am a worry wart after all. It’s what I do.
So now that I’ve probably thoroughly confused anybody reading this…I’m going to New York on Wednesday!!! Huzzah! Broadway here I come! Plays, musicals, pastrami! I love it all. Though everytime I go to NYC nowadays, I get a little antsy, because I remember the time the guild I was in at the time exploded in dramatic fashion whilst I was up there and I came back to find a new guild made from many ex-guildies in it’s place ready to invite me. Things were never the same after that. Plus I hated the tabard they chose. And the name. GOD that feels good to get out!
*zens out* Ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…….
*kerfuffle is such an amusing word, doncha think?
