that's a thing i was concerned about too, honestly. but i get the impression that, to most people, i don't come off as a jerk. there a few people that dislike me and a few people i've got into fights with but the general opinion people have of me isn't, as far as i can tell, that i'm an asshole or anything. i could be wrong but yeah, you can take my approach without coming off as a jerk to many people, i think. or maybe my standards of "how many people it feels okay to have think i'm a jerk" are different than yours. it could go either way, and it is your choice to make. i just made the choice i made 'cause, to me, it felt like some people thinking i'm a jerk would be much better for my mental health and easier for me to handle than letting my scrupulosity take over would be, and so far, it has been. heh, i used the wrong term there. either way, this is a thread about your personal issues, not a general thread like the steven universe or the gravity falls or the tumblr.txt thread, and so you'd be totally justified in asking me to leave it.
