Lately I have been bothered by the attitude of society I call GIANT SELF. Life is difficult, I think we can all agree. However, each day is hard enough without having to deal with GIANT SELF at any given moment.
I am not sure how it started but GIANT SELF thinks it can be disrespectful, irresponsible and a bully to everyone.
Whether you are poor, single, married, divorced or widowed, we all must find a place inside where we have more than SELF on the brain.
I try to remind myself there is always someone worse off than me. For some reason, who knows why, the pass several months have been very difficult, I am not ashamed to say tormenting. Many family issues have risen up that I did not think I could handle.
I found myself searching for someone, anyone to listen or console me but everyone had SELF on their minds. As the summer has progressed I find myself looking back now at how I kept an attitude that “this too shall pass”.
Now the main issue actually has not gone away, however, I have pressed on and been able to keep some quality in my life.
This attitude of society which seems to be creeping in everywhere is this big giant of SELF. Seems folks feel entitled that the World was built to serve them. If someone gets in their way, well watch out, you are going to get run over. SELF has a mind of its own. It wants what it wants, when it wants.
SELF does not feel it has to be responsible for any of its actions. It can disrespect, talk down and straight out hurt others for no good reason. Just because SELF feels like it.
I feel it is time for us to standup to SELF. We all have the right to be treated with respect. We do not have to be pushed around by the bully called SELF.
Our lives and the struggles we go through are enough for us to deal with, never mind running into the GIANT SELF everywhere go.
The attitude of society will be a much better place when we do not bow down to the GIANT SELF.
I took a test run and confronted one of the GIANT SELVES I have in my life. I spoke my mind, stood my ground and I felt so much better. I regained my position as a person who deserves to be treated with respect. The other SELF may think they are right, because they seem to think they usually are, but I know they will be thinking about our encounter for a while.
Well, I hope this helps You folks. You deserve to be treated with respect. It does not matter where you come from, what level of society you are from, You deserve to be treated with dignity.
SELF needs to be put back in their place. We were all born with nothing and we will all die with nothing. There is absolutely no reason for this type of behavior.
