I keep seeing it more and more.

In everything.

No one cares about anyone else.

No one cares what they say.

Who cares if it upsets someone else?

Who cares if it bothers someone else?

Who cares if it causes someone else to stumble?

"I'll do what I want, say what I want because I don't care what you think!"

That has become the general attitude of everyone.

It really saddens me.

It saddens me that not only am I living with this...but my children are growing up with it too.

I can't go on the computer anymore because there is non-stop swearing and I fear my children may see it.

I can't go into the grocery store, a restaurant...anywhere for that matter...because people are cussing, talking vulgar, and saying inappropriate things.

When did people quit caring about other people's feelings?

There are things I do that I know might cause other people to stumble.  There are things I say, there are things I believe...but when I KNOW that someone else has a problem with it...I hold my tongue, I don't do it, I refrain from whatever it is...I don't want to hurt people, I don't want to upset people, I don't want others to stumble.

I really don't know many other people like this anymore.

Everyone I encounter in the world, on the computer, out in public...says what they think, does what they want, etc.  WHO CARES who sees it, hears it, or how it affects them!

It really is sad.

And what's worse...they don't even care.  They will flat out say..."I do what I want.  I don't care how it affects you."  Or they'll say, "If you don't like it, don't read it, don't listen, etc."

Why is everyone so hateful now?

I don't expect everyone to be like me...but I think people have just lost the general respect for other people's feelings...no I don't "think"...I KNOW they've lost the respect.

It just hurts...it's sad.

 

Update/Edit...

The fact that so many people are reading this and not responding leads me to believe that my point is right on.  I see no one disagreeing...

Sad...

Jun. 3, 2008 at 9:40 PM I agree. It was my thoughts exactly today when I got atacked in my own journal post and I see it over and over everywhere. It's terrible when you cant take your kids to McDonalds because someone is going use the F word or people fighting or making playground...not caring whose space they violating. It's sad sad sad.

Jun. 4, 2008 at 8:59 AM First Good Morning Melody!! I do agree and disagree to a point~this is what make me a friend I won't just nod my head. So please understand there is no disrespect intended.............See sometimes there is a need to use some of those ugly words reason being is sometimes those are the only words in which to truelly convey our exact emotion at that exact time ~ this is how we (DH & I) have dealt with the ugly word usage within our son's group of peers. Since having this very discusion with them we have seen a very noticeable decline in usage. Yes I too am guilty of using the ugly words to convey my feelings however that doesn't make me a bad person or a bad mother. I feel it actually makes me better mother to some extent because I try to make the right choices and by me making a mistake teaches my children that I am human and that I just don't preach to them. I can teach them right from wrong till I'm blue in the face~but when they see their Mother make a mistake and correct it by actions and an honest apology that teaches volumns. Now as far as teaching the repsect and usagae of kind words and biting your tongue when you should~My oldest has learned that trait and knows definately how and when to apply it, now if only my youngest could catch on that quickly!!

Jun. 4, 2008 at 10:43 AM I think in general, society- th enon-believers are embracing the "me' generation and this causes a person to not put someone else first.  Sad.  But when we have the love of Christ in our hearts there 's not excuse.  He told us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves...that's what the world needs more of.

Hi Melody!!!  :-)  I totally agree with you 100% and it is reassuring for me to know that there are other people out there like you that do care and have respect for others.  We really need to just pray for this world.  I care and I just want you to know that !!!  I want you to know to that I have been thinking about you  and I am still praying for you and your family, as well as your neighbors family!  They truly are blessed to have you as their neighbor!  I wish I was!  :-)  God bless you and I hope you have a great night!!!
