Because I’m a busybody, because it’s freezing cold and raining all the damn time and I have nothing better to do and well because I’m giddy for them like I actually know them or something I have read a bunch of articles about their engagement. I read the comments on Emily’s IG and on her Twitter (Josh doesn’t use social media) and I’m just struck by how absolutely drama free it is. I have read nary a negative comment about them. Just people leaving glowing congratulations for Emily and Josh about how much they love them together and how happy they are for them. There are no haters, everyone is respectful and rooting for them. I really don’t know why the Outlander fandom ended up the way that it did or why it was ‘blessed’ with so many nasty nellies but I can’t help but think that at least in part the reason that there’s no negativity surrounding Josh and Emily is because of the way they conduct their business. They are mature, private, but have never tried to hide that they were in a relationship, there are no games they are just infinitely likable and deserve all the goodwill they are receiving from fans and media alike.
Some believe confession helps a guilty soul find peace, releasing us from the shame and regret of our mistakes. In the face of mortality, many feel the need to seek this closure to make things right. Because if death doesn’t kill us, our demons will. A guilty heart is silent. Its pulse muffled by the secrets it keeps. While some believe confession can release a tortured soul, others view it as a sign of weakness. Because ultimately whatever you say, however you feel about what you’ve done, it’s irrelevant, for the hand of death is equally unforgiving.
