Too the extreme!!!

So I am sure by now a lot of you have heard about Facebook, Youtube banning a lot of well-known alt-right pages. Now I am going to say right now, I LOATHE and DESPISE ANY extremist of any group. Right or Left, Feminist or MRA, Christian or Muslim, Vegan or…not very vegan?lol…Kind of like those meat eaters that eat something raw just to make the vegans mad,lol…Those “not very vegan” people,lol.

However, getting back on topic…

With the bans what infuriated me was the protection and the Freedom of Speech these extreme alt-right were getting, ESPECIALLY from the POTUS. Alex Jones put a target on DEAD AMERICAN CHILDREN and their surviving families. For myself, someone who wants to protect someone being able to do that to DEAD CHILDREN, rather than protect the DEAD CHILDREN and their families. Says to me a lot about what kind of human being you are.

Freedom of Speech, does not = Freedom of Consequences or Freedom of being banned for ignoring the Terms and Services of a business. I wonder how many of these “Freedom” people were all for the Christian baker not making the “gay” cake? I wonder how many of these same people said that the Baker HAS to make the gay cake? So far, I haven’t found a single one,lol

If I had a supporter who did that to DEAD AMERICAN CHILDREN (or any dead child) and their surviving families. I would be 100% behind banning them.

The reason I am writing DEAD AMERICAN CHILDREN in capitals, is because I think some of Jones’s supporters forget that he did do this. Families are STILL having to move around because of him.

Sometimes I get angry

One of the comments that I get asked is “Do I get angry”

Yes, yes I do…I am human after all.

  • If I see an animal being abused, I get angry
  • If I see someone get bullied,I get angry
  • Do not bully children. I do not care how much of a “punk” you think they are. I’m looking at all those “adults” who bullied the Parkland students.
  • I don’t get so much “angry” with Trump supporters now…I just feel sorry for them. How dumb are they?!

Sometimes it does surprise me this question because hasn’t everybody at some point been angry about something? When I thought about it a little bit more though I started to realise that nearly everybody is angry about everything these days. Some of the guys I’ve known in my life have had terrible, just terrible ex girlfriends. You know the type, they had a bad night, so everyone else had better watch out. I’ve just never been like that.

As I suspect a lot of my readers are this way too.

I just don’t understand that way at all. I have always felt life is hard enough, why make it unnecessarily harder for other people?

I am a Resistor!

resist

Let’s down right honest here…

Too be completely honest, I’d rather look this like then be a Trump Supporter any day of the week. If the worst you’ve got on someone is their “looks” Then you’ve got nothing…I’d rather look like this than be a racist, angry, hateful supporter of child molesters trump supporter any day of the week! Why do the they think THIS is an argument? When did someones looks become okay to attack? I don’t even find that great of an argument when people use Trumps hands as a defence, because, well it’s not.

I’m also shocked by how quickly they manage to get on Twitter when someone they don’t like writes anything on Twitter. Then it occurred too me that the majority of people who are on benefits and voted for Trump, are white people on benefits. Which means that people who don’t work and can’t afford to go anywhere, have Fox. We even get Hannity and Ingraham, in Australia, and they are played during the day. When other people are working. So retired, unemployed people have that all day. Even here, in Australia, the Trump supporters are people who do not work or are retired. Guess what is on all day?

IT ALL MAKES SENSE!

If someone can’t get out and see the world, this problem ALWAYS happens.

I, personally, have always found that if someone hasn’t left their own state BUT without an actual reason (for example, they suffer from anxieties) They tend to think the whole world is them. Every thought they have, everyone else in the world must as well. Now this obviously is not everyone. Just the majority it seems.

Self Love Questions…Part Two

So last month I made a post called Self Love Questions. When I went to look at the link again, I realised that there were 20 questions! I decided with that I was going to make a “Part 2”! Once again, please feel free to use these for yourself!

20 Journal Questions for Self-Love

11. Have you ever valued someone else’s opinion over your own? Why? What would that situation have looked like if you put yourself first?

Oh I always value my Mums and my Grandmothers opinions over my own…Doesn’t mean I always listen, or follow through with it…Even though sometimes I really should. I wouldn’t be who I am though without them! Sometimes when I feel like I don’t know what to do, they know me best and I can always talk to them about anything.

12. What type of person do you believe you are? What do you love about those characteristics?

Even though I’ve had some ex-friends recently go around saying I’m some horrible human being. I don’t think that I am that at all. I think I am kind person, I don’t go out of my way to hurt people. I’m pretty quiet, but stubborn when I believe it’s something important. No matter how many times and over the years I’ve believed I’ve changed. I still always get INFJ for the Myers Briggs Test.

I love being me, every day I am beginning to realise how truly lucky I am to be me and to have the people around me that I do. There are a lot of actual horrible people out there.

13. Alan Watts said, “The most dangerous risk of all is the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.” What would you do in your life if you had the world at your fingertips?

I would probably be running my own side business to be perfectly honest. Even if I had won the lottery and/or didn’t need to work anymore for whatever reason. I enjoy doing crafts and making things. I would have to be able to do it at my own pace of course. It’s something I really want to do, but I am so frightened of doing it, and I don’t even know where to start!

It’s one of the things I want to look more into this year.

14. What does forgiveness mean? What do you need to forgive yourself for? How can you love yourself through the forgiveness process?

I believe that forgiving someone for yourself is loving yourself. I need to forgive myself though for being so hard on myself. Mentally I am going through a lot right now and it can get tiring one moment to the next. There’s nothing wrong with that, there’s nothing wrong with having a moment and then to get myself back together. As long as the moments become less, or I find some other way to cope with them. That is getting stronger.

15. Being mindful means paying attention to the present moment without judgment or analysis. How can you practice mindfulness in your life? How will mindfulness help you?

Oh this is something that I am always trying to do, to be more mindful of myself and others. I think it’s just more about be aware that it’s not always about you. Not everything affects people in the exact same way.

16. Where do you want to be in a year? Focus on feeling good while you write about your dreams. Focus on feeling happy and believing your dreams can become a reality.

I would love to have at least a permanent part-time job in another Library. Even though I was treated pretty shabbily by the one that cancelled my contract (while I was sick)…and no one told me. I still would love to work in a Library at least permanently part-time. Anxiety wise I want to be handle it better without taking any drugs, probably still using Vitamins though. I personally think they have been helping me a lot. I would love to be a little more social again as well. The last 6 months or so, I’ve been not feeling up to going out so much, especially crowded places. I guess mentally I want to be stronger again, and not so tired from these pills! … Hopefully engaged too!hehe =D

17. Schedule times throughout the day when you will give yourself a pat on the back. Tell yourself how good you’re doing. Tell yourself how much you appreciate your hard work. Set alarms on your phone to remind you. At the end of the day, write down how each affirmation made you feel. Write down how each affirmation changed your mood or actions.

I think that I am going to do this for the next month…Starting from today and write about how that had gone.

18. What do you love about your life right now? Why do you love it?

I love it right now because in pretty much every single aspect of my life. Every place and everyone that was not supportive of me last year when for really the first time in my life, I actually needed support from others. They’re gone. I’m just left with the people and places that were supporting me. How can you not love that?

Can I get an AMEN!

19. What does imperfection mean to you? How can you learn to embrace imperfection in your life?

I am one of those “annoying” people. I honestly believe that everyone is perfect in their own way. We all make mistakes, we all do things we regret and I think all of us have at least one situation where we look back in hindsight. We are imperfectly perfect. The only time I think someone is imperfect is when they are cruel and horrible to other people, or if they torture animals. I just think something has to be “off” with people who do that. I can’t honestly say that I could ever embrace those sort of people.

20. Is being selfish a negative thing or a positive thing? What if you believed that being focused on your feelings could be beneficial to your wellbeing? How would your life change?

Sometimes it can be a completely necessary thing! Sometimes you absolutely have to be selfish and take care of yourself first. It’s also important to remember it’s not always about you though. It’s okay to have a “day off” from the world, we all need it to recharge so we can better help people. Just make sure you don’t always have a “day off”, if you know what I mean.

Goodbye too you…

I realised the other day you can’t miss someone if they never brought anything to your life. I keep waiting for the moment where I feel sad and cry but it doesn’t seem to be happening…That’s fine.

It’s alright…It really is…

When you realise someone never really brought anything to your life, it’s then that you start to let them go.

It’s okay not to be sad, it’s okay to realise someone you cared about was not a very nice person. It’s alright to not miss them at all. It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you, it doesn’t mean you are emotionless or heartless. They were just, as my Gran would say, “not part of your tribe”.

I’m just going to add another link here, that is not in the video below:

Anxiety Disorders: National Portal of India

This will also be the last time I mention my ex-friends. I think I’ve been in shock. I will let you know as well, this Vlog goes on for a while. Be Prepared!

 

Humanity

I just wanted to start off with saying that I actually had another post ready to go today, but there is no way that I can post that post and ignore what’s going on in Dallas and the bad situation over there.

So much is wrong with this whole situation and I would be shocked to find anyone who didn’t see something like this coming. There’s only so much people should have to live with, no one should feel unsafe in their own car, in their own home, in their own neighbourhood.

I am very lucky living in Australia, and here “Down Under” I feel safe and it feels partly wrong to write about another country. In some ways though, I also feel like we all live on this planet together and there are just sometimes where you have to stand shoulder to shoulder with others, even if it’s just metaphorically speaking.

So my thoughts are with Dallas tonight and I HOPE that we all learn from this.

Do you think Charlie Chaplin would have had any clue how poignant his words would still be today? I am crying.

Welcome and Wanted

One of the hardest things about being in a relationship (especially a new one) is trying to ‘decipher’ and decode your partners quirks and habits. It’s probably one of the biggest messages that I can say when you are single. You NEED to find out what makes you happy, what behaviour are you willing to put up with and you NEED to stick with it.

One of the hardest lessons that I’ve learnt throughout every single relationship, and in all honesty I mean friendships and family. The hardest thing in any relationship is to feel wanted. I can honestly say that every partner that I’ve had, they never wanted to be around me. They always seemed to prefer the company of their friends, even if they were bad-mouthing those friends (which should also be a clue). Even with my “friends” I have had friends who have dumped me for other people…Hence why “friends” are in quotation marks. I no longer consider them friends.

When you are single, you think there’s this whole world that you are missing out on. I was always good at being single personally. You have to figure you out, I cannot stress this one enough. My current relationship is tough for me because I have so many insecurities, I’ve had to deal with a lot on my own in the past. I am not used for asking for help, I am more used to being upset and crying it out on my own.

Before you get into a relationship do things on your own. Reconnect with yourself. The major reason I am doing alright now is because I know that I’m fine, my current partner is not my other ex-partners, he is a whole other human being and has never given me a reason to doubt him.

People, huh!

Oh my god, what a week! I think that I have officially given up on the human being population and I am going to go and live with the wild animals of Africa. There’s a system there, it’s not glamorous and I’d probably be dead within the first 24 hours…But, I think it’s easier than the human race.
