The 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 increased 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! When 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!
