Mildly annoyed at…

Pardon my “sometimes I have to rant” post today… but I just got caught up on my Facebook reading for the day and am at this precise moment mildly annoyed at the number of posts I read of people (my friends) bashing the American way.

How does one nicely recommend to that person that they consider moving to the country that DOES have it all figured out? How does one nicely suggest that if they don’t like it they should do something about it, instead of just complaining about it? How does one lovingly … oh never mind, I’m just going to keep my mouth shut …

I’m just going to do what I can to make this world a better place. I’m going to be the change I want to see in this world. I’m going to be the best person I can be with what has been given me. And I’m not going to bash someone’s ideals or the pursuit of happiness or the fact that someone is just out there living life the way they’ve always dreamed… I’m going to do my best not to judge the decisions of others. After all, I don’t have to live with those decisions, they do.

And if and when I feel like I just can’t stand it anymore I’m going to stand up and right then and there make a decision to change something… and that’s going to be either my surroundings or my outlook.

Ok – I just had to get that out there…

One thought on “Mildly annoyed at…

  1. Heehee, I try my best to be personal and not political on Facebook – although sometimes I fail – and I hide people who get too political. This despite the fact that I am VERY political and always vote and pester my representatives. People who don’t agree with me annoy me and people who agree with me often also annoy me with their sanctimoniousness. I try to keep in mind some wisdom I saw on Pinterest: “I TOTALLY CHANGED MY POLITICAL VIEWS BASED ON YOUR FACEBOOK STATUS, SAID NO ONE EVER.” HEHEHEHEE
