I read from the site Not Good Enough Dot Org. I am filled with a sense of hatred and loathing for my fellow man. I hear their petty complaints they screech at me, they hurt me. Words wasted on such triviality, people complaining about delays in airports rude service, companies taking products off the market because they don’t sell.
Pathetic wretches, completely oblivious to how amazing it is that they are alive, the incredible improbability of their own existence, their complete ingratitude that they are ok, in one piece. In thanks of the miracle of life; they complain over things which are of no consequence. Imagine their live if they had something truly worthwhile to complain about, every day we illegally detain refugees in this country, imagine a day in their shoes, imagine their thoughts of someone who's most pressing concern was a 5 minute wait at the bank. Imagine having to live a week in the war torn west bank, your most pressing concern is survival, not the delivery time of your pizza. It is all a matter of perspective.
We have been given great gifts in our lives, the ability to think, to speak, to be conscious of our own existence. With communication, we gripe, we complain, we loose all perspective wrapped up in our own personal pointless struggles, we flounder like the fat pigs that we are. Our intelligence and our minds we squander, we stare idly at coloured boxes for hours on end instead of challenging ourselves, we let people tell us what to think instead of thinking for ourselves. We destroy our minds with intoxicants and drugs because we can no longer face ourselves. We pay heed to advertising, and the petty escapism of reality TV instead of facing the true struggles of our time. Poverty, crime, wars in country names we can't pronounce these things do not trouble us, not if we have credit cards, cars, microwaves and digital televisions.
We are selfish, horrible and unworthy of the infinite love of any being, until we can find ourselves, we are nothing. The distractions of life will always prevail.
