Ever felt that sudden shift when you go from feeling emotionally threatened by someone's bigotry to the peaceful realization that they're just being pathetic?
And not pathetic in a bitter way, just in a "oh. that person is just emotionally inept and is taking a pathological/violent shortcut to feeling worthwhile."
It's not a feeling of pity, anger, or defensiveness. Just serenity and warm self-assurance. Mmm. That's so nice. Like a bubble bath.

It feels similar to when an abuse victim stops blaming themselves for abuse and sees the smallness and brittleness of the abuser. I wish I could give you a slice of this feeling. 💙
