I’ve always loved to watch people. We all have so very many foibles. We all have strengths and weaknesses, and at points, we all make mistakes. I do all the time, as we know. Characters are all different, yet we insist on thinking that every other soul on the planet thinks pretty much like we do. I’m learning – rapidly – that they really don’t. Everyone has a different agenda. Mine these days is simple. My life has been filled with highs and lows, as has everyone else’s. Quite a few more lows than highs actually, believe it or not. I spent a quite a while being as sour as a lemon, but I got over that. Now when life gets me down, I tell myself that it is MY life, after all. I can do with it what I will. I choose not to be lemonwoman. And this is working for me. I’m enjoying myself.
There are many people out there, suffering genuinely debilitating situations. Real, terrifying mental illness. Abuse. Starvation. Unhappiness is everywhere. All over there is misery to be found, if you want to find it. All inflicted by people. Now my mission in life is to help where I can. Heal where I can. And make lovely friends along the way. This I’m doing quite well. Hi buds!
I am, however, really sick and tired of petty whining. People blaming their woes on the rest of the world, when these blames are unjustified. Note that I said – unjustified. If you’ve been abused and traumatised, mentally or otherwise, you are not included here. I’m on your side if you have been, and ready to help in any way I can. For the others though – I say – get over yourselves! Look inwards, and see that selfishness and jealousy is your motivation for your terrible self-pity. I really don’t feel sorry for people like that. And passive aggression is much more harmful than a punch in the nose. Look around you people. Then really look around you, and see what you have that others can only dream of. I’m done with that sort of thing.
And on that cheerful note, till next time friends. xxx
