I've been on this web site tonight for over an hour, reading a majority of the posts made to "vent". I'm actually slightly horrified by what I've been reading. I look on Facebook, and I'm disgusted by the idiocracy, now I'm afraid to go onto cafemom and read what the current complaints of the women are.
Why is it so incredibly difficult to respect others? Why are we unable to openly communicate without fighting? Why, oh, WHY can't we just accept that our opinions are our own, and there is no need to enforce our own opinions and beliefs on other people? Why do we pass judgement on other people? Why are we more concerned with what other people are doing (or not doing) than what we are (or are not) doing?
I know my flaws, I know my failures and I accept them and move forward. I don't expect others to understand. Why are we unable to embrace the differences of others and move forward? How long will it take to realize that it's so much easier to let things go than allow them to fester and rot in your spirit. Where is the integrity? Where is the humanity? I know there are a lot of questions here. I don't expect an answer (unless it's sarcastic or from a neuroscientist). I'm actually quite stunned and appauled by the amount of hate pouring from the keyboards.
Here's my request of you... the reader... What three things are you most grateful for? What are three things you want to change. NOW. You don't have to post them if you don't want to, or do so under annonomous. Is it time to leave your marriage? Is it time to question your religion or faith? Is it time to look at others with more compassion? Is it time to take that $20.00 you were going to use for (lunch, hair, nails, drinks, etc.) and buy some groceries or a present for a friend? Is it time to tell your friends or family how much they mean to you!?
Let's practice a little less hate, and a little more love... and maybe, just maybe... we will think twice before calling that woman a "slut" or snubbing the homeless man, or ignoring your best friend's call for help.
That's it. I'm done. That was my rant.
