Sometimes people are so caught up in themselves, they don’t see how hurtful they are being. In a society that tells you to be selfish, “it’s all about you”, we are told no to feel guilty for hurting others. Because you should only be concerned about yourself. But how many of these incidents could be avoided by just TALKING to someone, instead of lashing out when they don’t understand you.
I take theses things and I hope I learn from them. To be honest, to speak the truth in love, to stand up for what I believe, and to call people on their stuff.
This is my blog, I can say what I want. It’s a forum for my feelings and my experiences. I would hope if I said something you took offense to you’d take the time to ask me about it. If you said something I thought was hurtful, I would probably ignore it, because it isn’t worth getting myself worked up over something that I may have misunderstood. Or maybe it’s a pattern, and I’ve learned not to take that path. I just hate lying, I try not to do it, and I hate when I feel like someone is lying to me.
I had a good Mom To Mom meeting today. It was meaty, it was small, it was everything I wanted it to be. Except it could have been longer.
We just finished watching Newsradio Seasons 1 & 2, so I’ll close with a quote from that.
Joe: Seven times. I flunked this test seven times, you know. I mean, I don’t want to say ‘conspiracy,’ but…
Lisa: Well actually, I am starting to see a pattern here.”
Joe: Ah. Uh huh. Uh huh.
Lisa: One of last year’s questions was: ‘In the following circuit, the potential is blank volts.’ And you answered: ‘I refuse to answer the question on the grounds that the design of this circuit is totally sucky.’
Joe: Yeah. I don’t know how that dumb bastard ever got to be a professor.
Lisa: Oh. Well you know, that would explain why you answered the next question: ‘If you want to build a thermostat that won’t be affected by humidity, try this you dumb bastard.’
