When did....Once and awhile I find myself wondering about some things. Nothing too serious, though. Just trying to understand what really happened to old time values in what most call now the modern age. Thinking about it in itself can definitely make someone sad.
So, let's start off with a simple one. When did trying to live your life peacefully become such a crime? I've noticed quite a lot that if you sit somewhere (reading a book, using your laptop or just quiet contemplation) while keeping to yourself, it seems to instantly attract people who feel the need to mess with you. For the life of me, I can't understand what normal person would go out of their way to do this. Would it be too much to respect a person's right to be left alone? Being a loner is not evil, despite what others say or the media says, but rather truthfully, a person's right to be drama and stress-free. Does anyone else ever have that problem of just wanting to live peacefully?
Now, onto some good ones. When did having: common sense, compassion, honor, intelligence, and maturity fall to the wayside. I've noticed a lot of things that leave me shaking my head. Especially, when I see people behind the wheel of a car. Why do they put everyone at risk? We may never know the answer. Is the problem how one is raised or do people just naturally act the way that they do? Makes me wonder.
And I will end this series with something that really boggles the mind. When did being a nice guy and truly loving a person for the right reason become such a hated thing? I see more often than not, women writing complaints of not finding nice guys yet when one shows up, they vanish. I've had this happen to me 4 times already. I just don't get it. I know in my heart I won't ever give up on things like: unconditional love, being supportive, patient, loving, kind, faithful, loyal, putting the other person above me and most importantly, bringing out the best in them. Maybe more and more need to be old fashioned. There is no real need to race to the bedroom. I prefer to win the person's heart and let them decide where we go from there. At my age, I'd be just happy to have someone that loves me for who I am despite my faults and not throw me away like trash when things get tough.
Thanks for reading my first blog. Please be gentle with your comments. I really wrote this from the heart. Once again. Thanks.
