Nurture Thursday – Ponder

Nurt Thur – Ponder

Oh, I have been doing that a lot this week. My heart literally broke the other day, seeing people defend Trump for running away from the questions about the 80,000+ dead American citizens. They were more concerned about #Obamagate. Which compared to Trump, compared to the pandemic. Is literally nothing. How people can say that what Obama did, is worse than what’s happening RIGHT NOW with Trump at the lead. How someone can say that Americans have such hatred for their country, because they don’t think what Obama did is worse than what Trump is doing RIGHT NOW, breaks their heart and how much Democrats/Liberals hate their country. While they IGNORE the 80,000 and their HATRED for ONE black man, just makes them ignore the 80,000 AMERICAN DEAD…It does make you ponder when did they lose love for their country? Did they ever have it? Or does the hatred of one black man, just cloud that?

Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day, “Happiness”

Unicron

Sometimes the things that make me happiest, are not quotes about happiness, necessarily. This one makes me grin every single time.

Dalai-Lama Happiness

Not only do I love the Dalai Lama, but I also absolutely agree with this quote. Suffering from anxiety, a lot of the times I have recognised that it is my own head. I have ways to get myself back together again. So sometimes yes, it is up to us and our actions to ‘get happy’. The moment you stop relying on others to make you happy. It’s freeing! It’s still nice to have people who can make you happy, but do it for yourself first.

Minority

I really wish I could remember who said this, because it’s so spot on and I would love to give them credit. This is not something I thought of, but I agree 100%

“The reason racist people keep going on about fake attacks on Christianity or white people. Is because they are frightened that they are going to become the minority. They are frightened the way they treat others, is how they are going to be treated”.

Why they don’t just change their own ways, I don’t know. But this is just true.

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.

 

Courage to Walk – Nurt Thursday

Nurt Thursday – Courage to Walk

I have to warn you all that I am going to make this personal, however if you can relate, that makes it even better!

When I had my massive panic attack last year, and when I came back from the hospital. I basically stayed on the couch, day and night for the next two days. I had never been so scared in my life…But…I got up again…I didn’t want to be on the couch anymore, I wanted to get up again…I did not want to be on the couch for the rest of my life…I didn’t want too…

dont be afraid

The most satisfying and most empowering moment that I’ve had in my recent life is when I walked out the front door and sat in the park near my partners house. For the next month or so, every extra step was a personal triumph! When I went inside to the cake near my partners house and waited in line with strangers to buy a cannoli…Amazing! There is a lot of truth to

“The first step is the hardest” But you can!
