Escape Negativity!

state_of_emergencyThe world has become a constant state of anger and negativity! It is almost impossible to turn on the television and not be shown another act of violence or another type of anger. So many lives are affected every day by these horrendous acts. Anywhere from school shootings, to ludicrous talk from the White House, to an incredible amount of police brutality, to the lack of ethics in corporate American, it seems never-ending! There has to be something that can be done to stop the outrageous behaviors that have become the new norm.

Personally, I do my absolute best to hold onto the positive aspects of life. I do believe that even in the darkest times we encounter in our lives, there is a bright side somewhere even if it is well hidden. If we surrender to all this negativity surrounding us, we are not any better than those stirring up the pessimism. We do have the ability within us to rise above all the hate and show love for others!

It is possible that I am wrong, but I think the amount of hate in this world has increasedholding-on-to-anger-is-like-grasping-a-hot-coal-with-intent-of-throwing-if-at-someone-else drastically over the last 14 months or so. Politics with family and friends has always been a sensitive subject and probably always will be that way. Everyone wants to believe in who they vote into any political position and will not listen to reason when the facts are proven, over and over again. I think it is safe to say that no one really wants to admit they were wrong and were blindly convinced someone would make positive changes. It does not matter what side we are on, not many politicians are very honest. They all say what they believe people want to hear and will force that person to support them through anything! Who wants to believe that anyone in a powerful position would destroy something that could be truly wonderful? I think that money and greed can influence people to do things that ordinarily they would never think of doing. For me, there is absolutely no amount of money that would make me think it is okay to destroy anyone’s life!

When I was younger I thought that the United States was a great country to live in because we were free and safe. But, now that I am older and a little wiser I am questioning this a lot more! How are we free and safe when we have someone constantly making what were allies angry and making others that could be considered dangerous hostile? In order to create harmony, there must be logic and common sense! I have thought for a long time now that logical behavior and common sense were long-lost, which is pretty unfortunate.

I know that this entire post was absolutely nothing to do with any chronic illnesses or issues that come with illnesses, but these thoughts are pretty important in the big picture. There is way too much hate encompassing people around the world right now! No hateWhen we should be evolving, but it seems as though we are devolving! I have my thoughts on where it is stemming from, but there could be a lot more involved that I am just not aware of. I do not know how to make changes in massive amounts, all I know to do is always treat those I encounter with respect and dignity!

How do y’all feel about the state of the world right now? Do you believe there are positive or negative things occurring daily? How are you personally handling the issues that you view on the television or see in person? I am going to be honest, I was a little worried about sharing this post because I do not want to offend anyone reading. I am just really tired of hearing about all of the hate and violence that is constantly going on. I am and always have been a very compassionate person, but that just seems to be unusual in the world today.

I hope y’all had a great week and I hope you are looking forward to your weekend! I am so glad we finally made it to the weekend because this has been an incredibly long week and I wish the weekend would be just as long as the week felt! I really appreciate you reading my rant today and I would love to hear your comments! I will of course respond to you as quickly as I can! I hope you have a very lovely evening and a fantastic weekend! I am always sending y’all lots of love and comfort!

Love 2

Always, Alyssa

  1. I agree with every word you wrote and have considered running for a local state office? Unfortunately, at least for now, that’s just not who I am. Perhaps we folks with disabilities should start are own Political Action Committee and support only candidates who subscribe to our values?

  2. The state our country is in right now is breaking my heart. I wasn’t a big Hillary fan but I think Trump is a hypocrite, a bigot, a sexist, and he is only catering to his greedy friends & himself instead of doing his job.. which is catering to the common people. We pay him. He works for us but he forgets that. I’ve tried staying away from politics the past week because I just wanna shake sense into some people.

    • Oh my goodness Casey, we think so much a like!!!! I do my best to keep my mouth shut with all this political craziness, but I can only bite my tongue for so long. I can not talk to my mother about it, because she supports the moron in office! It is so frustrating how people act now and some really think Trump is great. He never knew what the job was about and did not care to know! Thank you so much for this comment!!!!!!!!!!

      • I don’t think he really thought that he was going to win. He just wanted to make waves and add drama so he could sit back and watch and see how much Chaos he could really cause!

      • Absolutely!!!! His wife was even upset that he won! He loves the drama and thinks he is still on his darn TV show by firing people. It is completely insane and making our country look like idiots. It really makes me sad and I wish I could do something to fix it. I guess we only have 3 more years of his insanity!!

      • I can not for the life of me understand how anyone can support a man like he is., Well I do not think he is a real man at all, but you know what I mean! It feels like his was a bad prank that just will not go away!

      • Ugh, yes. Then all the excuses for his shitty behavior. “It was locker room talk” “Okay, he has had several allegations of sexual assault since the 80s” “But Clinton”. It’s like this with everything he does!

      • He is just a shitty person a ll around! He never expected to be president and does not know how to be the president. He acts like he is still on his TV show with firing people! Muller might end up being my hero if things go the way they should!!!

  3. The only thing I seem to be worried about lately is the future status of our healthcare and insurance. Coming from someone with a pre-exisiting condition. But, yes, I am becoming more and more aware of just how selfish people are in America. It’s quite sad really.

    • The pre-existing conditions is scaring the heck out of me!! I fear they are going to change the status of healthcare very soon and it will not be for the best the American people. The people that are making the decisions need to be more compassionate and empathetic to others needs. I really appreciate you making this comment!!! I hope you are feeling well and I hope you have a great weekend!!
