Sad Reminders

An 11 year old boy killed himself after his 13 year old girlfriend faked her own death. She is know facing charges. (Washington Post)

We live in a dangerous time, a time where it is so easy to read other people’s opinions, other people’s stories…A time where, for some reason, everyone automatically believes the first thing they see with their eyes. Even though over and over again we are proven wrong. #fakenews

How many times do we get an email from someone we know and we instantly know something ins’t right about the email? How many times have we been told by a friend or family member that they have received spam messages from us? Personally I’ve had a couple of times where I’ve had friends let us know if we’ve received a message from them, it’s not them.

It’s really made me think before I just automatically go and condemn someone, to actually do my own research before I go and knee jerk attack someone.

What I think I can’t stand more than people attacking someone without doing any research, are the people who take no responsibility for attacking someone, especially someone they don’t know, reporting them to their work place and potentially getting them fired and they are wrong.

There was an incident recently I saw, literally the day after I read about the 11 year old killing himself, of a screen shot on Instagram of someone who had apparently sent a message to someone they don’t know, a racist and threatening Facebook comment. Well of course complete strangers went and reported the guy. So I was just as annoyed at this guy and went had a look at the guys Facebook. It was the oddest thing ever, the guy was African American himself, he had his African American sister defending him, something seemed “off”. While I don’t think it’s impossible for people of the same skin colour to attack one another, the whole thing just didn’t ring true.

However, that wasn’t even the issue I had. The issue I had was someone mentioned to this Instagram page that they were potential ruining someones family (the person is a married family man) and getting them seriously hurt over something they’ve probably haven’t even done. Instead of people going “You know what, we may have possibly goofed up” Nope…They decided to attack this other person and call them a troll and THEY needed counselling, because they were swearing…That was it…They were swearing mainly because other people were just not listening to what they were saying.

When are people going to take responsibility for themselves?

How can we ask those who are actually doing the wrong thing to take responsibility, when we as the “good” people and the social justice warriors, cant’?¬†

Those darn feelings

Why do I get the feeling that for the whole time Trump is President we’re going to keep hearing “Well Hillary wanted to do it” or “Obama was in war with Syria” This can broken down very simply:

  • ¬†Hillary ISN’T the President and you cannot make comments on what she would have done because SHE ISN’T THE PRESIDENT…Haven’t they been complaining about the whining people have done because Hillary isn’t President? Now suddenly well she said she’d do it, so it’s all cool?

 

  • Obama was in War in Syria because the last time a President went all gun ho and started bombing another country, we are still technically in War with that country and terrorism in our countries has increased since 2001.

 

  • Trump IS President NOW. Whatever happens is because of HIS actions and nobody else’s. It is Trumps responsibility what happens now. Whether that is good or bad. He is a grown ass man for pete sake.

Karma

KARMA:

I see a lot of people who want Karma towards a lot of people who have hurt them or harmed them in some way or another. By this it seems that a lot of people want them to have some big event or other (and sometimes for the other person to have this overwhelming need to apologise).

This is how I see Karma. It’s not a one big event thing and they more than likely are not ever going to apologise. Take comfort in this though. Every day they are living their Karma. Every day they have to live with being caught with their lie, or how they’ve hurt someone. They are feeling it, trust me. The only type of person who can hurt another and not feel it…Well that’s just psychopathic.

Take myself, for example. I had someone who decided to impress me by insulting his sister and his best friend, just to get into my pants, which did not work. I was then not invited to anymore parties and slowly I have not heard from anyone since (It’s a common theme for them. They do something wrong and you get “punished”) Now I could be hurt by this, except I feel sorry for him.

Can you imagine it? He doesn’t like his sister being there and he has to live with his friends saying disgusting things about her ALL THE TIME. Trust me he knows they are…How do I know this? Because he used to do it about other girls. You know the Trump “locker talk” stuff? Well they do that. Even if they didn’t too his face and I have seen some of them do it, he knows exactly what is going on. He must be SO pissed off. I don’t need need some big event, he must feel so alone, not being able to say he doesn’t actually want her around. Knowing the horrible things the say about her, knowing they don’t actually respect her, for her.

I don’t need to do a damn thing. If people wont talk to me about why I was suddenly not invited either, they have to live with that too. Which has happened to me over this situation as well. It’s not surprising, but it’s still disappointing.
