I made a pledge recently on Facebook to stop arguing with people on places like Social Media over the whole US election thing as it was just fruitless. No one wants to listen, and anyone who does say anything respectful #IsupportHamilton…Is seen as harassing?
I also believe that there is a Simpson quote for everything, and below is a perfect of what it’s been feeling like trying have an open discussion lately. Hence why I can’t be bothered doing it anymore.
Reverend Lovejoy: Homer, I’d like you to remember Matthew 7:26. “The foolish man who built his house upon the sand.”
Homer: [pointing a finger] And you remember
Homer: Matthew… 21:17.
Reverend Lovejoy: [confused] “And he left them and went out of the city, into Bethany, and he lodged there?”
Homer: Yeah. Think about it.
This has been a topic for me that has perplexed me this year. Why do people continually talk about how much they “hate” something and yet can’t help themselves and continually watch them and involve them by commenting on every single thing they do? Why can’t people just scroll by?
This is a little different post for “Life Lessons of the Libraries” and I feel like it’s one of the hardest lessons to learn and I am learning it again…For the millionth times.
Sometimes I feel like heartbreak in a romantic relationship is more than a majority of the time, inevitable. The breaking of a friendship though can sometimes be if not just as hard, but sometimes harder than the break down of a romantic relationship. Clearly there are different variables.
I seem to be going through this with some friends who I thought I was really close with. They just seem to have cut themselves off from me and any-time that I plan to meet up with them, they keep cancelling. The biggest insult is when they’ll hang out with people I introduced them too!
I think the hardest things about these situations is you never seen them coming. You think you are really close and then suddenly you are completely blind-sided. Which is why I find friendship breakups really hard, because you very rarely see them coming. Especially when you are getting dumped for a group of people who are just horrible. Case example, Girls brother comes up to me (guys have been dumping me to be with this girl) and I feel uncomfortable talking to her brother about it. Except he says “They only like girls who can’t think for themselves”…That was the last time I saw that group. However, it’s kind of personally insulting to me to be dumped for a group like that -.- Where siblings have no respect for each other.
My mother was the first person who brought this up too me…and I have to agree…Now I’m not sure if somebody else has said this first, but I heard it from my Mum first.
