I’m not a happy camper today. My last post probably made that somewhat evident. I hate days like this, but they happen. They have to be dealt with.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to embrace the peaceful side, to stay calm and composed and helpful when you’re surrounded by laziness, stupidity and annoyance? it seems a few of my friends are feeling the same way today too. It’s just one of those “Seriously people?!” kind of days.
I’m trying really hard to not just go off, to not let the Leary/Carlin side of me take over and start verbally bitch-slapping the world. Sometimes I think the world needs it. Sometimes it does. [shakes head] Angry Bri used to be in control. I used to write nothing but venom-filled rants. I made the decision to take a gentler approach, but I wonder if it’s really done any good.
People told me that the rage put people off, but at least pissing people off got them involved. It felt good too, but I don’t want to be angry and full of hate all the time. The balancing act between the two has never been something I’ve mastered. I’m still working on it. I just keep thinking there’s got to be a way to wake people up and stop the circle of insanity and stupidity.
As much as I hate the way people act and the state of the world, I really do want to make positive change. I want to make the world a better place. Unlike most of the population, I actually care and I’m actually willing to do something about it. The problem lies in getting through to people. People need to wake the hell up. And now I have thoughts for another post…
