The thing about being petty: You’re the one who faces the wrath. Trying to hurt others because you want to get one up on them, only shows the true color of your character. To be vain, is not living at all. In the end, YOU will always be the bad guy. You see, in a world where people grow, people change, and people make choices, why it is OK for many people in the world to think as grandparents they suddenly have a claim or right to a child that they didn’t create. They don’t. I see people fighting amongst each other over the most irrelevant things on social media that often, I just want to shutter in terror that the world has come to this kind of behavior. Divorced moms, against divorced dads. Friends against friends, parents against children, at what point do people realize that is not what life is about. To destroy a young child’s life because you want, what you want, doesn’t help them, it helps you. In my experience, I have seen when parents talk badly about the other parent, or rips the child away from the parent, and to tell you the truth, it never works positively in their favor. Why? Because that child hates you for changing, or in other cases, ruining their life. Dad used to say, “Do it because it’s the right thing to do, not because it’s easy, or benefits you.” Well he was right. He was always right. I’m again slightly heated in this post because I see a world of utterly shallow, and oblivious people. How can anyone believe ripping a parent from their young, that they have done so much for, is suddenly the best thing for the youngin’? It’s not.
Bitterness is an ugly monster. Being petty, is truly the vainest way to live. Here’s the point. To be petty, bitter, and vain only turns everyone you’ve hurt against you. In the very bitter end…. Think about it. What do you have…………………….Exactly!
Here is my message: see the light in others, and treat them as if that is all you see.
Wisdom is knowing that judging others is a form of discrimination.
Talking down to others is hate.
Attacking others is hate.
Being cruel and unusual is vain.
When does the difference kick in?
At what point do people start seeing these messages and say, “Yeah! Why not make a difference?”
The world can be a beautiful place, we just have to open our eyes and see people as we would like to be seen.
Mom used to say, “Treat people the way you want to be treated.”
And “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it all.”
First of all, these are great points. Why? Because respect is a two street, and talking dirt always comes back. But most importantly, the universe. Our minds, words, and thoughts are powerful. What we send out, comes right back.
In conclusion: This week I’d like to see you reflect on these words with what do you have inside you? Courage, strength, fear, happiness, generosity. Etc.?
Have you ever once thought you’d like to make a difference?
What if I told you, your chance was now?
What would you do?
Most importantly, what would you tell me?????
