Often when I am going off about a special interest, people assume I am angry with them. They mistake my passion for anger. Do you ever receive that miscommunication?

    all the time ! and it sucks when you have to try and communicate that you aren't angry , just excited , and they're still confused . it's hard to explain to people why i'm so passionate about certain things , because to them it's just an ordinary thing and nothing to be excited over . i have a special interest in bees , i could (and have) talk about them for hours . people often misunderstand and think i'm preaching about saving the bees (which yeah , but that's a whole other thing) when i'm not ! i'm just excited about the little black and yellow guys !

      right!? Some of my special interests like social determinants of health are political and it only makes matters worse because people feel like I'm lecturing them on a fault or something when im really just....info dumping on a passionate subject. Also, I also like bees! Did you know bees can perceive time and have you read about the experiments they did to find out? Or that some bees stop flying when its dark, and it's kinda funny to watch them just fall from the air in experiments testing light and dark conditions?

        this is amazing. Very intriguing. You may have just sparked a rabbit hole for me tonight, lol! ❤️

    Sometimes, yes. Usually I do not take in to account the light in which the subject was brought up, and/or, how I am communicating about the subject at hand. To me, it is hard to remember how easily things can be taken personally and then before I know it, I made another mess😳
