That sad moment

Well March has been a bit of a doozy for myself, with regards to losing respect for a few people. I have been really shocked by a few people this month. Mainly over the whole Royal situation, just because either they did “Piers Morgan…I don’t believe her suicidal thoughts” or the classic white person “She’s just being sensitive, I got bullied about my funny teeth”.

I was really saddened to read the comments, by people who I thought “Got It”. All white by the way. While I’m not saying that makes them racist, they are still a little close-minded to the fact of being a POC woman, or just a POC. They tend to get it a little rougher than getting bullied for having funny teeth or glasses, and I am sad that they can’t seem to acknowledge that.

George Floyd

Ahmaud Arbery

Breonna Taylor

Michelle Obama (even if she was a trans person, she’s still a better person that every single one who thinks calling her man is a “got you”)

I think it’s all part of my funk at the moment, just the continual disappoint of people who I thought were “better” than they’re turning out to be.

  1. It is hard to suddenly see people through different lenses and in some cases have been known to end friendships. I am learning (still very much a work in progress) how to not have expectations of how others are or act because they are colored by my values and beliefs. My mores. And it is unfair of me to expect them to be the way I want them to be. I am sorry this does not sound quite how I am trying to say it. More convulusion lol What I am saying is disappointment can be mitigated by lowering your expectations. In the long run it saves on sanity as well. Now you are thinking what is this crazy lady on about? I enjoyed and understand where you are writing from. I myself would never equate the name calling I received to be anywhere near what goes on throughout the lives of POC daily. As for the jackass and his denial of mental health issues and all those who are in his camp I don’t have time to educate them or any other asses on the reality of it and how precarious it is. How hard to reach out for help. I will end here lol just be aware when you write something I really respond to you receive a whole novel in response. Have a great day 🙂

    1. Oh no, I totally get what you’re saying. It’s a odd situation, because I really just thought that they had more sense then what they’re showing. Pretty much, they’ve turned into Piers Morgan obsessed with Meghan and it’s just really hard to take what they say seriously anymore.

      1. I live in Canada and we don’t have quite the press that you have over there and down in States. They are the type of journalist during the Hearst years that caused so much difficulty. And when they are not held accountable makes one wonder what would happen if we began to go through their garbage and listening in on their conversations. I guess the worst of it is they lack so in moral fiber that they do not care eho they hurt or how so long as they can cast rancor into the mix.
