"I no longer harbor hurt feelings or offense against JYJ, but I am completely indifferent to them."--How long did it take you? I try to be indifferent, but it just continually angers me because they threw their "brothers" under the bus. Maybe that's why the split/lawsuit is still talked about even after these years. The pain and suffering they caused were/are inexcusable no matter how their fans paint it.
I think it’s a journey, not a destination. I will never forget … but it won’t change the past either, Anon. It especially digs up and opens old wounds when I read things like what Yoochun recently quoted, “I no longer hate them,” which infers that at one time he did hate our Yunho and Changmin.
I start to feel anger bubbling up with thoughts of “How dare you, have you no shame?!” But you know what? In the end, nothing I say or think will make a difference with those three. The only real difference I can ever make is by supporting TVXQ’s Yunho and Changmin. I make a difference by flying around the world attending their concerts. I make a difference by purchasing their CDs in bulk and then gifting them to other fans. I make a difference by posting on SNS, my blog, by creating another international TVXQ site to show my pride and love for them. I make a difference by loving their music, by sharing it with others.
I would never make that kind of difference by bashing or hating. I’d rather expend my energy, time and money on TVXQ! not on anti-fans, or even by hating OT5s. They aren’t to blame. We just have a difference of opinion, and we are all allowed to express our support as long as we don’t hurt others. I try and follow Yunho’s example.
Remember, if it weren’t for the split, we would never see the Yunho and Changmin we see today, the superstars that shine on their own, and not in anyone’s shadow. I may never had been able to see or hear their songs they’ve created and performed like they do now, if they had stayed as five. True artists are tormented, rise from that pain and create art.
Take the high road, Anon, it’s healthier and you’ll feel less burdened.
