Everyone seems so touchy lately, and a little bit mean at times. It used to be you can have an opposing opinion and not be labeled as horrible things. It used to be you could express your opinion without being attacked. It’s wearing me out. It feels like people are taking each other for granted lately. As if everything you do or say is taken out of context and used against you. People being cranky, yelling at each other, fighting while not fighting, or purposefully choosing to embrace the hate rather than love.
We all bleed the same. No matter who you are on this green Earth, we all bleed the same. We all hurt. We all suffer in some way. We’re all suffering now and facing situations that we never thought we would have to face from the loss of lives, loss of business, loss of homes. There are two sides to the coin concerning the pandemic and no gray area. It’s the same with politics. There’s no gray area anymore. People think you are either good or bad, depending on whatever side of the aisle you identify. There’s no tolerance for the beliefs or feelings of others, all while the people who are doing it demand that you honor them and their personal feelings.
Witnessing the horrors that are going on around me in my country is hurtful. I see so much that’s not being reported on the news. It’s hard to explain it to friends who are in other countries because they don’t see it. Their media isn’t reporting on it, and what little their media does report on, they don’t believe them.
On the one hand, there is a bunch of people running around looting and rioting as a form of protest. People being beat, rapes, tagging property, and chasing people down in the streets, all in the name of justice. Pulling people out of their cars or worse. Then you have the other hand consisting of a group of people who seem to take things less seriously, like the pandemic that has taken over the world. Then you have both sides fighting over what racism is and either making racist comments themselves or making up terms to fit their narrative. All of this is just starting to wear me out.
I’m over all the hate. I’m over not being able to express my opinion, even in a small way, without fear of being labeled. I’m over fearing leaving the house because some asshole might decide that because I am a white girl, I don’t deserve to live while they scream about racial injustice. I’m just tired of all the hate. I don’t hate anyone. I don’t wish ill on anyone, not even those who have hurt me in the past. I don’t push my views on people either, but I feel like other people try to force their worldview on me.
Anyway, Adventurites, I’m going to close this for now since this has gotten way too long. Enjoy the products featured here from Out Shop Cancer…and don’t forget to stay safe, stay sane, and be kind! Later, Adventurites! ~LA
