The Root of the Problem

This is also another run off of yesterdays post “The enemy’s territory”.

There are a lot of things I don’t understand about the human race, and one thing in particular grates on me as I get older. There’s a person I am close too, who is an alcoholic, wont admit it, and that’s not even the problem with them. This person is a family member and I can completely understand the whole not admitting to being an alcoholic.

What I don’t get is the abuse, and never acknowledging it. Yet, at the same time. Being proud when they stand up to people they don’t like. This person refused to go to a family Christmas because their other twin sibling called them “fat”. But yet, they abuse the shit out of me, my brother and my Mum, but we STILL are required to show them respect and talk to them. If we don’t respond the way they want either, then we get abused like they’re the victims and they can’t seem to understand why we then don’t want talk to them after.

The most recent incident I said they’d have to wait one more day for me to get an answer about if someone can take me way out my way to meet up with them. Because the person who I had to ask to take me, was sick. I knew even in a good mood, they’d probably say no. I then apparently had 30 minutes to ask them and of course the only answer was going to be “no” So then the abuse started.

Over the years, I put up with it, but lately I’ve been growing extremely tired of it. I am not doing this the rest of my life. Every time it happens, I have to turn my phone off, but it gets ridiculous. This person demands respect, but gives none back. Unless they’re deleting their messages to us while they’re drunk…again…Then how can they NOT see it? They blame my Mum for their bad relationship with my brother and I. Yet, it’s not okay to call them fat? Then they’re going on a cruise with this person who called them fat, but we keep getting abused? They had to cancel what they wanted to do for their birthday to satisfy the person calling them fat…But do you think they abuse their family member…Nope, just the people who were going to offer to get them a room for the night.

How does someone justify this in their head?

The whole reason they keep having problems is because they keep being kind to the people who are horrible to them, but are nasty to the people who are kind to them? Maybe that’s their problem?

 

Are You Aware?

So one thing that has been irritating me a lot lately are people playing the “blame game”. Especially when it comes to mass shooters and trying to place a blame on something. For this post I am just going to talk placing the blame on violent games or tv shows. People using examples of real life violence and how people were “inspired” by fictional characters.

Here’s the reality,

There is always going to be something that inspires people. Just like kindness, if you’ve got that “evil bug” there’s going to be something. Banning or trying to dial back wont work. Because just like I am not inspired by violence, violation. There’s people out there who are wired to be inspired by it.

One good red flag is anyone whose obsessed. So if your partner is doing nothing else but playing games for hours on end, then they clearly have a problem. Which probably has nothing to do with the actual “theme”. They just have a switch.

I’ve been finding it very interesting to be “lectured” about dialling back on the violence by people with a profile picture of an anime character. Because we all know how Anime doesn’t over-sexualise, violate or have extreme violence in it at all…Sarcasm.

(I mean, come on, how safe is that really! Not everything is cute and bubbly in anime world)

I don’t think these people are aware of the extreme behaviour anime is known for. I say this really LOVING some anime series’s (Death Note, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop).

Are we putting celebrities at TO high of a standard?

In case you hadn’t noticed there’s been a lot of social conservation between certain celebrities. On top of that though some celebrities seem to be coming under attack if they don’t do what the public thinks they should be talking about. I’m starting to feel sorry for people in this “celebrity” industry.

This is the thing about becoming a celebrity, 90% of the time it’s pure luck that people will love you and like what you do. It’s not like with politics where they have a background in dealing with others, negotiating, that sort of thing. A lot of the time a celebrities that will send messages on their account on their behalf.

I do find it interesting how one can do or not do the same as another and one get completely condemned, while the other is hardly mentioned. If you hold one celebrity accountable, surely you should be holding the others accountable? Do we need a reality check on what we are asking these people? If they had to talk about every single issue there was out there, they would have to literally hire someone 24/7. I get that celebrities have this amazing platform, but what happened to speaking up for causes ourselves?

Did Martin Luther or Ghandi sit around waiting for a tweet telling them what to care about? No, they just spoke up for themselves. Maybe it’s time to take our power back, for ourselves…Why in this age do we keep relying on outside influences to tell us what to care, and what to do. Why? If there’s someone who you think should be saying more, don’t harass and shove it down their throats…That NEVER works…SHOW THEM!
