  • I really appreciate your slideshow. Really fun to read. Thanks!

    It sounds like your frustration here is that other people disagree with you about what you have to say and why you did what you did. I understand exactly how you feel. It can be frustrating to feel misunderstood or be told "That's not the right thing to do."
