Hold your friends close and hold your enemies closer. NAH! I am just going let the enemies go.
Does anyone else every feel that their life gets too peopley??????
Some days I am just over many people.
I am pretty easy going and laid back. I never go out of my way to hurt someone or say something hateful. I am honest and will voice my opinion (as is my right) - and then I get blasted!
NOW KNOW - I am NOT talking about this blog or any of you fine people.
People today are so very different. I know many people blame it all on the past couple years. Well, maybe some of it - but it started before that. People are so self-centered, sanctimonious, entitled and just clueless!!!!
I know this ventures into a different subject, but what ever happened to freedom of speech? LOL! I am not wanting to start a conversation about government/politics at all - just the fact that people are just nasty and rude more and more today, and they want to control 'others' speech.
You voice your opinion or add to a conversation, and say something that in no way is trying to be hurtful and people complain. I see this day after day on FB and in some of the groups I belong to. Why is one persons views more important than another's? Why do people think it is OK to bash people in a way, that they would never do in person? Why can't adults just ACT like adults?
I have now gotten to the place that I know I did nothing wrong and God shows us where we should be and who we should be around. I AM listening!!!!
I live to please only ONE and that is God.
You just never know what will flip someone's button today. It can be something big or something teeny tiny! I just think the world gets to peopley for me on somedays. I am not going to be bitter or upset - I am praying for these people. Just give me my fur babies and nature!!!!!!!!
It seems to me that Satan has a grip on many people today - and they don't even realize it. It is truly sad.
So never be shocked or alarmed when "friends" become foes. It seems to be the sorry state of the world today. You and I both know that we have much more important things on our plates to handle - than to be pestered by hurtful and ungracious people.
FOR THE FUN
I only watch a couple of You Tube channels now. One I never miss, when she posts and the other I watch sporadically. Both have a calm way about them and they are just entertaining.
The one I never miss is Coffee With Kate (Kate Signh). She is just a neat person. She talks of her financial journey, her family, garden, spirit and a bit of this and that. She is real! She has gone through a lot of changes with her channel over the years and I always stay tuned in.
I sometimes make a comment of her channel, when something hits me. The other day she responded with "I was enjoying your blog the other day". WOW - I geeked out! I thought that was so cool.
She has over 10,000 followers and she is an author of many books - and she was reading us!!!!! That just made my day.
So folks, people change and life changes.
Light your torch and hold it high and light the way to the world for "your" people to follow.
Sometimes we learn in a tough way - but eventually we learn who OUR people are. Love them and hold them close. Pray for the others.
We surely can't please everyone. We have a right to our opinions. We still have some semblance of free speech. So, don't let people beat you up for your thoughts and beliefs.
Stand up for YOU! Life is too short to let the negative in. Tune in to the happy and the enjoyable,
Make life fun! That is one thing we CAN control.
I love you all my friends - and I appreciate each and every one of you!!!!!
