Just remember

PSA

Just remember that during these unusual times, that there are people out there who want to help. There are people out there who just really don’t know that you need help. Remember, there’s no shame in asking for help.

Just remember to talk to to people, even when you’re not expected too. A simple, “Hope you’re doing well” Can perk up anyone’s day. Do it, but just remember that they may not reply, and that’s okay. Just remember to not harass them if they don’t reply.

Are you an empath?

*If you follow me on Instagram. You probably saw my post about this topic. As I wrote on the post, I wanted to write about this topic, with a little more oompfh.*

Too begin with, there are two type of empaths. There are the type that feel for others, so you see a situation and while you might not understand what they’re dealing with. You feel for them. You can feel the pain that they are feeling. You get why they’re fighting for what they’re fighting for.

The other are people who can almost actually read your mind. They are what is called an empath psychic. A lot of these types can see certain things, like, you might of heard of people who can see colours around people or auras’. We all have one certain colour that surrounds us, but empath psychic can see our colours change when we feel pain, happiness, sadness etc.

Also, for each empath, clearly there are empath’s who feel different areas more strongly than other areas. So there are people like medical empath’s, as an example.

Basically Empath’s are people who literally feel for others.

Now, the issue I really have with people who say “I am totally an empath, because I have strong feelings so I am expert on others’ feelings”. Having strong feelings doesn’t automatically make you an empath. Narcissists, as an example, think they have strong feelings. I would never call a Narcissist an empath,lol. But I’ve known a lot of Narcissists in my life, who do call themselves empaths, because they have strong feelings.

Now, I don’t mind if you have strong feelings, we all do, we’re human after all. My issue is when you going around using a platform to use your “strong feelings” and then talk and spread your misinformation.

If your an empath and you’re using your platform to say “Don’t make me feeling guilty if I need a break from BLM, because I need a mental break” and then continue to complain, about how people are making you feel guilty. Now Empath’s, like myself, do feel guilty if we need to take a mental health day, because we KNOW that we haven’t had to deal with the racism for hundreds if not thousands of years. If you’re only getting involved with BLM NOW, you’ve literally been dealing with it for about a month,lol. Not hundreds of years, so yeah, to complain that people make you feel guilty for needing a day off, is kind of ridiculous and not empathetic.

An empath, by the way, has been feeling BLM, before BLM, became a “thing.”

Empath’s, At the same time, are aware that we can still do something even when we need a “day off”. You can do things that don’t require you to go on social media, that don’t require you to go out and protest. Buy or go to your local library and grab that POC author book, you may have not read before. Get old clothes together, to give to charity. Old toys to give to vulnerable children. Make some home cooking for your elderly neighbour. Write a well written letter to your Representative, that peaceful protesters are being arrested for BLM marches, ignoring their 1A RIGHTS to peacefully protest. While white people with guns, hang effigies of their local representative…were not. See, you don’t NEED to go onto social media, at all.

An empath, already knew this. So chances are, you’re not an empath.

It’s perfectly fine to not be an empath, it’s not like it makes you insensitive to people, it doesn’t. You still have feelings, just empaths tend to have stronger feelings for OTHERS, not just strong feelings in general. But please, do not go saying you are one, spreading misinformation so you can be part of a “fad”. That’s what you’d be doing.

Angry Karen’s at the Mall.

I am sure that by now, we have all seen at least one video of the angry white “Karens” at the supermarkets and in the malls. Throwing a fit, and causing damage to properties and products.

Do you think, a single one of these women, have watched themselves later and gone “Maybe, my priorities are wrong?”. I doubt it…But I live in hope. How are these grown ass “woman” NOT embarrassed by their actions? If you want to see what privilege is, watch one of these “meltdowns”. It is EMBARRASSING.

Soldiers, Police, Front line workers put their lives on the line every day. Possibly never coming home…And these “woman” are having a tantrum, fit for a child, because they don’t want to wear a mask.

Good god, I hope they DON’T have children!

Sure, they have a right to protest about not wearing a mask. But is it REALLY want you want to be known for? That you don’t want to do literally the very least you can do to help your fellow Americans? I would be willing to put a bet on it, that these “women” are also the FIRST to say that America is a Christian nation.

We need to get over ourselves…

Well not me, I’m perfect…lol.

  • “Christians” who refuse to wear a mask, because they think it makes them look foolish. While stating it’s their “right” to not wear a mask. Completely ignoring OTHER HUMAN BEINGS RIGHT TO LIVE. That’s not Christian, that’s the Devil, dears.
  • People who want to “save” the human race, but wont wear masks. Then talk about “family bonding”.
  • People who constantly ask ME, why my BROTHER doesn’t call them. If it bothers you that much, ASK HIM…Maybe the fact that you’re asking a completely different person why a completely different person does what they do, might be a clue there?
  • Stop asking me if it bothers me that he doesn’t ring people. I am clearly not bothered, by the fact that I am not the one complaining about it and saying “that’s just who he is”.
  • If I didn’t ring you, I am not required to give you split second answer to every question you have. I DIDN’T RING YOU!
  • I am not required by any rule or law, to hang out with people, that YOU don’t even like, just because their “family”.
  • WEAR A MASK!

You can’t and I can, you can and I can’t

I follow a really beautiful person on Instagram…Chronically Courtney. Now Courtney is vaccine injured…BUT…Please read further before heading to her account and blasting. She still tells people to get vaccines, just do research before you get them. Which is just common sense, really?. Nothing is 100% guaranteed.  What I REALLY love about her, specifically though, is that even though there are times her body flares up, and she gets unexpectedly upset. SHE KEEPS GOING. She has not let it “end” her life.

Which brings me too my blog topic today. One of the annoying things about her account, not her. Is that every time she makes a post about vaccine injury. Even when she SAY HERSELF, get the vaccines, do research. I guarantee you that anti-vaxxers jump on with the whole “Thank you Courtney, we should get rid of all vaccines…They have DESTROYED so many lives”.

I feel insulted for her sometimes, Courtney doesn’t really strike me as the type who thinks her life is destroyed. Her injury, has inspired her to do more. Heck, I’m nearly double her age…nearly…and she’s doing a lot more than I ever have.

About a year after my huge anxiety attack, people kept telling me to take this product called “Seremind”. It’s a lavender tablet. So I did…I took it for the whole month and I hardly got any sleep. So I stopped taking it and people weren’t…exactly annoyed, but…annoyed,lol…That I wouldn’t keep taking it. About another 6 months after that I was drinking my usual cup of chamomile tea before bed. Then it hit me, what about chamomile! I always drink it before bed and it helps, I always drink it if I’m feeling anxious and it helps.

So I started taking that about a year ago, still taking it.

As you can see though, even thought the majority of people take Seremind, it just didn’t work for myself. But Chamomile “Tablets” and tea do.

It’s just the way life is.

Which is one of the other things that annoys me about those anti-vaxxers. All of them go on about how they’re better than say someone like me. Who they clearly have no idea about. Because I “worship” western medication. Which isn’t true. So many of them call themselves “Pagans” or “Wicca”s, not realising that that is a belief system. I, myself, to use both Western and Eastern medication. I do do research before I start to take something.

There was this one “Wicca” who came onto one of Courtney’s post. Going onto complete strangers posts and making uninformed comments about them. I saw that she has apparently been taking something natural since the middle of last year to make her less judgemental…I couldn’t stop laughing,so I wrote “Well this clearly isn’t working”. Well that was a mistake,lol. She told me I ruined Courtney’s message. I was called hateful, and she’d appreciate it if I could stop making armchair assessments on her, since I didn’t know her. So I did the laughing emoticon again and reminded her that she chose to write armchair judgemental comments on people she doesn’t know. I just thought it was funny that someone who claims to be better than others because she’s all “natural” is not only taking something to make her less judgemental, but it clearly isn’t working for her,lol. But these others were medicine worshippers, because they think you should research before you take anything?

Update: (this is happening a lot lately,lol). I have now actually unfollowed Courtney,lol. While her message is generally thoughtful and kind. Like with a lot of people lately, she seems to have gone one way or another. ie vaccines are evil. I still stand by though, if you are vaccine injured. It does NOT mean the end of your life (like a lot of these anti-vaxxers say it is). You just have to find a different way to live it. 

What makes you a good person?…Magical Monday #6

Do any of you have any one in your life where they’ll do one of those inspirational type posts or quote, but they are the complete opposite of that quote? I’ve known a few people who are bad biotches, and not in the “cool” way. They’re just bad. Yet,they post things about how you treat others and how they treat others…Or at least, how they think they treat others. Our managers, as an example, at work are pretty much breaking Laws with how badly they treat their workers. Yet, they’re “skype” banners are all about how well a manager should treat their staff.

Have you ever heard of that saying about how if you have to tell everyone what kind of person you are, you’re probably not that person? Like those guys who call themselves “good guys” ALL the time, but they’re not?lol

But, here today, I want to talk to you, about what you think makes you a good person? Or what good do you look for in others? Let’s not be shy! Go for it!

 

Your Birthday

I don’t even have kids, but do you ever feel like your birthday isn’t actually your birthday? Your birthday isn’t about you, is it?lol…Everyone keeps either telling you your doing something or asking you to do something on your birthday. Yet, none of the people can set a date, so I can’t even say yes to anything. I know what I’d like to do.

My Dad says I HAVE to celebrate my birthday with his family because you have too celebrate with family. Except, I haven’t actually seen or talked to any of that side of the family for years, and apparently none of them have spoken to each other since Christmas, because they got into a huge fight…

Yet, he keeps having a go at me because I don’t see any of them…But he doesn’t even like them!

Then there’s a cousin who has a birthday a few days before me and they’re “making” my mum do something the same weekend with them on my birthday weekend, but I’m not invited? So Mum keeps saying do I want to so a Sunday night dinner instead at her house, not mine? First, my partner HATES doing anything on Sunday evening, he’s a teacher and it’ll be the night before his first day back after holidays, and I do not want him to complain…again. Second, why would I travel somewhere else?

You know what I really want to do? I want to go this local beach town, even though it’ll probably be cold. Watch the sun set down over the beach, eat the local all you can eat place (drink a little too) and stay over the night at a hotel.

It’s positively not always about you.

I have been getting SO frustrated with all these Republican “women”. Conveniently saying that they remember EVERYTHING from when they were assaulted. (None of them have reported it to the police) So that’s why they don’t believe Dr Ford. It makes my skin literally crawl.

All these “people” who are like “Well I did it this way”…GOD they sound like my ex best friend when she said it was my fault that she had all these horrible stories to tell about her bf BECAUSE and I quote “When I’m single I don’t like hearing how happy my friends are in relationships” So I must be like that? (I’m not, I’d rather my friends are safe and happy than abused, just who I am.) This might shock some of those “people”…NOT EVERYONE IS YOU! It literally makes my skin crawl.

That’s why in the dictionary there are word likes … Empathy, Sympathy, Listening. Yes, there are also words like Self, Selfish, Narcissistic. Which ones do you want to follow?How about people use more positive words, more actual arguments? I know how hard it is for people who have a narcissistic personality to think it revolves all around them.

Let’s look at situations from other points of views instead. Let’s start listening to what others have to say…How hard is that?

Rather than not listening and hearing what happened to you, listen to what the other person is telling you.

Let’s turn this all around! Let’s start the talking again.

 

Let’s break it down…again…

I feel like every single time there is a huge sexual assault case. All the “I don’t believe her, she waited too long”. Every single time we have to explain it all over again. Why people don’t report.

I have to say though it is amazing how Republican women will claim they were assaulted and they went straight to their Mothers. Yet, that’s not their problem. They keeps saying why didn’t she go to the police. Not one of the has said that they went to the police or the FBI either! So whose to say that there story is true? Isn’t that their whole problem?

Anyways, I digress…

Hopefully you have all been seeing the hashtags on Twitter or Instagram … #whyIdidntreport

If you have seen this hashtag, I hope you have read the courageous tales of both women AND men…On the various reasons of why they didn’t report.

  • They were terrifed
  • They knew the person and were in shock
  • The person was in a position of power.
  • They let someone know, but they were not believed or told not cause a “scene”.
  • They were threatened.

Please understand that while at the same time it is complicated and it’s also not. It’s a story.

 

 

International Day of Charity

Today is the International Day of Charity.

What are the things you think of when you think Charity?

  • Others
  • Money
  • Donations
  • Donating
  • Help
  • Helpfulness
  • Time

I think a lot of people when they hear “Charity” they usual hear ‘spend money on someone you will probably never met’. However there are ways to do Charity without spending either any money or very little!

Good question!…Mystery Lady

  1. We all know (well I assume we all know) that you can donate clothes, furniture etc to a wide variety of Charities and apart from maybe the gas to get to the stores, it doesn’t cost you a thing!
  2. Spare change? Consider putting some of it into one of the tubs of the people standing/sitting all day for their cause.
  3. Consider a clothes or book swap, with your friends, family, co-workers as well, or community. You can bake and even raise money that way bake and swap!
  4. It seems that every cancer has a charity for it. With each charity comes a “theme” night/day. Consider wearing jean for genes day, A lot of charities here, in Australia, and a lot of the women’s charities. They will movie nights, make up nights etc.

Do you have any suggestions?
