"Our reactions to things are really us reacting to ourselves, after all." I was confused by this. How do you mean?

Our perception of the world is a function of our own viewpoint.  What trips your rage-filter may not trip mine, and those tripwires are laid into our own personalities by a dizzying array of factors that we can neither control nor even identify.  Therefore our reactions are dependent on who we are, and they are informed by aspects of our own psyches.  We tend to react most strongly to things that strike a nerve.  People are often the most critical of personality quirks in others that they themselves possess but dislike.  Insecure people often lash out at those who share the qualities that they themselves feel insecure about.  Arrogant people hate others who share that trait.  It’s not a universal, of course, but often, we react the most strongly when what we see in others reflects things that we dislike about ourselves.

If you rightclick hte reblog buttong and open in a new tab, close the original tab, and then click "close" from the reblog thing, it will give you your dash back, a few pages in, and everything should load well enough after that. :)

On the subject of issues with endless scrolling: the Right and Honorable Beta (tzikeh) tipped me off that it’s an issue with Tumblr Savior and as usual she is correct.  I disabled it and now it works fine.

Your URL is the best URL. Also I am loving your HP quotes graphics. Are they available as posters perchance?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I admit I LOVE my url hehe And I’m so happy you like my quotes graphics! Yay!

About being available as posters… not yet. I’ve been asked this enough times to think about selling them, or some of them at least. So yeah, I’m thinking about it :)
