Nothing personal here, but I am fed up with whiners who cross my path almost daily. Just tired. I am tired of hearing about how life is unfair, how persecuted people are, yadda. Look at what’s happening in Syria right now and tell me why your life is shit. If you saw the video of the little boy grieving the death of his brother, you will know what I mean.
I hear people whine about traffic. I hear them whine about the cost of groceries. Whine whine whine. Are any of these “tragic events” putting lives in danger?
Why can’t people find perspective? I know it’s hard, but it’s not impossible. It just takes practice. Instead of the old What Would Jesus Do? idea, why don’t we try the How Does This Affect The Greater World? idea. I am guilty of this stuff too. Don’t get me wrong. But over the years, I am learning how much that affects the happiness of others. I am beginning to realize that my fussing is not productive. So is this fussing here today on this site productive? Probably not. Maybe I shouldn’t even do this. I am still in a steep learning curve about this whole universal creation process.
We need to act. We have reacted enough. Just saying. Guess I am not in the mood for bullshit today. My own or anyone else’s.
