I’m at the point in my life where I finally know what “taking it slow” means. I don’t want to much of anything right now. Completely immersing yourself and over indulging in something to quickly is the easiest way to get tired of things
The more you grow. The more you realize how important space and friendships are and how to have a perfect one you need the right amount of both. Being a friend doesn’t mean to soften the hurt, sometimes you have to let somebody hurt. Let them feel their own emotions and learn how to cope on their own.
Don’t know if the neglect is a good or bad thing. At a crossroads right now and any decision I make could lead to new begginings. Just because they’re options doesn’t mean you have to explore them and I guess that’s what’s most scary for me. The “unknown”. Everything in life isn’t certain and I’m ok with that but that doesn’t make it any easier. I’m organically growing into new relationships. I guess it was time to put my foot down.
We live in an era now where everything is Internet driven. Everything and everyone is using social media as some sort of platform. Here’s the thing that all users need to understand. What you post is how you’ll be treated. If you’re a female and you use those sites to show off your body, then you have to be able handle the attention that comes with that. Don’t expect positive attention of your aren’t portraying positive posts. Now , this isn’t a knock to people who do that, it’s just a double edged sword. Granted, everybody loves nice pictures. Everyone enjoys seeing it. It’s eye candy. Just know that those images mirror themselves both literally and figuratively.
So I was watching this show on Crackle called Comedian’s in Cars Getting Coffee basically created by Jerry Seinfeld. Its a great idea for a show. Jerry basically drives around town picking up the biggest names and comedy and well, gets coffee. Now I never liked his show or his comedy at all. Im sure a lot of people will disagree because he’s obviously doing something right. With his show in rendition, well known name and tons of money, its hard to argue he isn’t funny. But his style of comedy I always found boring and dry and probably has the most annoying voice ever. He always struck me as the type of person that would be a jerk if you met him in person and he did something in one of his episodes where Amy Schumer was his guest that solidified it for me. They get to a diner to get coffee and Amy orders some food. Very simple order: 2 eggs over easy. He orders: 2 eggs over medium and says he doesn’t want anything else on his plate and as a reflex the waitress asks if he would like toast with that. And he gives her the worst look I have ever seen someone give a waitress. The look basically insinuated that the waitress was to stupid to do her job because Seinfeld himself turns to Amy and tells specifically, “what did I just say?”. Who are you to treat somebody like that? Like what have you given the world besides dry and boring comedy? Even if you cured cancer, you don’t treat anybody like that, especially the person in charge of your food. He already uses the show to show off his car collection, which actually breaks down in this particular episode. he might be a great human being that does a lot of charity work and I might just know about it, but that one instance was more then enough to prove to me that he’s a jerk. Especially if you have the nerve to do that on Television.
Ever had that feeling where someone could be right in front of you and still feel alone? That feeling where you no longer understand each other. Where it’s bigger than people just changing. Where the distance between you and and the person you used to know almost kills you? The spiritual separation hurts. Where you in constant distress and you feel like you need to blame yourself because what other logical reason would it be right? Where you’re no longer worried about losing that person but more worried about whether they’ll remember you.
Interesting topic I heard this morning on the radio. The topic was basically about calling heavy set people “fat” and whether or no it’s offensive. One of the hosts point of view was pretty interesting. His point was that ,unless it’s a medical reason, if you took offense to being called fat that you have to take it upon yourself to change it. If you don’t then no harm done. Me being a “fat” person, I agree with that to an extent. I don’t take offense to the word at all. That’s not to say other heavy set people don’t. Now if you use it maliciously to try and get under someone’s skin then it’s wrong I think but then again that could go for any descriptive word. The real issue is that there’s grey areas, if it’s safe to use it on Tuesday it should be safe to use it on Wednesday too. You can’t have it both ways. You can’t rely on society to be politically correct. You have to learn to pick your battles and me personally, I won’t lose sleep over being called fat.
