I don’t know if men experience this too, but I am sure the ladies know what I’m talking about.
There’s always that one person, usually one of the opposite sex, who every single time you sign onto a social media platform, that also had DM’s or you can privately chat.
They’re there “Where are you” “What are you up too” “Can we chat” “Why wont you chat with me”.
It is REALLY annoying! And also really puts me off wanting to go on, which I guess, isn’t totally bad.
People, we don’t have to chat to these … I don’t know what to call them … Obligations
You should never ever be obligated in a friendship to chat just whenever they want. You are under no obligation to chat with someone when you don’t want to. I actually was a little shocked the other day when I post a message to someone, something that I thought they’d like. And they did say “thank you” But then ended it with “I thought you had forgotten about me”.
Like, come on. If you want to chat, see that message I sent you? You send one back through that. Communication is a two way street.
Posting a post on FB, Twitter, Insta … doesn’t automatically = I want a chat. If you want one though, ask.
Right, I don’t know how this is going to go. However, since February is the month of “love” What with your Valentines Day, Library Lovers Day, showing some love for Black History Month. I am going to try and do nothing but posts about love.
Now, I don’t means just lovey dovey stuff. I mean posts about loving yourself in a G rated manner, maybe PG rated, haha. Posts about love for your family, friends, romantic love, love for your fur, feathery, scaly babies. Probably with a sappy lovey dove post.
I already have a couple of posts for next week, I’m going to see if I can change them to make them more about “love” But I’m not promising anything. You might be able to tell.
There is a very good reason why you should never ever HATE someone. I include, murderers, rapists, pedophiles, animal abusers. When you hate someone, that’s a very powerful emotion to have. While I don’t blame the victims for hating their perpetrators, and THEY should do so. For us to hate the perpetrators, take’s away from the love and energy you should give the victim INSTEAD.
Now, I am not saying on ANY level to love a perpetrator, but spend YOUR love on the victims instead. Don’t hate the perpetrator, LOVE the victim instead. Also hate is such a wasteful emotion. What’s that saying…
I’m just letting you know that if you walk in and I see you with a t-shirt saying “If you don’t love it, leave it” I am probably going to instantly dislike you. As I did when a student walked in and was wearing a t-shirt with that saying, with the Australian flag all over it. I have never understood that mind set.
It is absolutely possible to love something or someone and realise they have imperfections. It is possible to love something or someone and want better for them. I love Australia, but it’s definitely (like a lot of countries lately) got flaws. If you don’t like people saying “We can do better” than you leave.
If your family, friends and/or relationships are not perfect, do you just walk away? Of course not, you help them. It’s a ridiculous notion that we all can’t improve in some way…Except for animals, they are pretty perfect!
When the Westboro Baptist Church a known hate group protested a transgender child at Brookwood Elementary in Leawood, KS Wednesday, September 11, 2019, the response to this abhorrent act on of all days 9/11, became the real news. The entire town patriotically and empathetically rallied in the children’s defense truly honoring the day. Parents, citizens, and teachers alike spoke up and showed up with unconditional love and acceptance for every child.
This is going to seem like a weird post for a magical Monday post, especially when it may not seem so “Magical” of a post.
I think it’s kind of sweet when Trump supporters genuinely believe that Trump loves his country. I don’t though, but only for one reason. This is going to sound mean and I genuinely don’t mean to sound that way. I just don’t think Trump knows how to Love.
Too me this was proven with one comment:
Then I found out recently he called his other daughter Tiffany “fat”. What kind of father says that about their own daughter? I don’t care if it’s true or not. A girls first introduction to be treating well, is her father. If there’s no father, then a father figure.
Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist? I would say that I’m an optimist, but these last couple of years have slowly been testing me.
Can War ever be just? I think that sometimes it can be, but I don’t think it is if you just want a “War”. I honestly think Trump would love it if there was a War that he started. You take a look at WWI and WWII, they always start over really dumb reasons, but they needed to be fought. The Allies couldn’t just sit back and do nothing. Well I say that and then remember how long it took for America to join in the Wars…Hmmm….
Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them? I try to do what I can really. There’s obviously only certain things I can do and can only go so far.
Are you health conscious? At the moment I definitely am! I have high cholesterol and since the rest of my family have it too. My doctor wants me to change my lifestyle for the next couple of months and see if I can lower it that way.
Gratitude, Thankfulness, Wonder, Awe and Joy!
This is the space where you share, if you’d like to, something that falls into those categories.
I don’t know how to answer that this week. It feels rude of me to say, but a lot of people were sick at work this week, but that has meant that I got work. Of course it’s been all the nice people, who I actually working with too though, but I think they get it.
