I am personally glad that Dave and Trish decided to be open to protecting their creation. It's easy to imagine how overwhelming an attack on them might feel, especially when they have been so honorable.

For many of us, attacks can come from unexpected angles... a trusted business asscociate, a spouse, a friend. Being open can mean understanding that some people come from a place that we don't... a place that doesn't honor agreements, or doesn't see anything but itself, or is bitter, or has a hard wiring in the brain issue.

Being open means not getting hurt by these forces, but by protecting your creations and yourself from them. It's not comfortable, but honestly, peace and honesty and mutual respect MUST be what my life is made of these days. For those who keep on choosing to disrupt and dramatize, I am not afraid of fighting you, in fact, I will eliminate anything that jeapordizes what is important to me.

In being open, we subject ourselves to all kinds of forces. That is awesome! There is no shame in choosing what you wish to surround yourself with... being open also includes paying attention, I think. And then choosing.

Thoughts?
