I am sick of everything that’s going on today!

Not my work I have to admit, but something passed on to me by a colleague from the local charity I ‘work’ for. Pretty much sums up the way I feel though...maybe it resonates with you too?

I’m sick of Covid-19!! I’m sick of black vs white!! I’m sick of Labour vs Tories vs Liberals vs whoever!, I’m sick of gay vs. straight!! I’m REALLY sick of the media bias !!!!

I’m sick of the language being used and plastered all over the media! I’m sick of no one being allowed to think what they want & feel what they do without offending someone!!

I am sick of the people who are out there jumping on the bandwagon to protest just to cause mass confusion and more hatred and to riot, loot, and destroy!!!!!!

I am sick of blaming the world for the sins of a few!! We’re one race—the human race. We ALL Matter!!

You want to support PM Boris Johnson ? You do it! It’s your choice. You want to support Labour, fine... also your choice!

You want to believe in God? Okay, believe in God. You want to believe in magical creatures that fly around & sprinkle fairy dust to make life better? Awesome... you do it!!

BUT how about being mature enough to be able to deal with the fact that everyone doesn’t have the same exact mind-set as you.

Having our own minds is what makes us all individuals and beautiful. If you can’t handle that fact....I’m sorry!! I don’t have to agree with everything you believe in. So be a decent human being!

For the record, I’m quite a nice person really...

I’m sorry you’re so ‘sick’.
You can obviously see the beauty and individuality of others, so why not try celebrating every time you perceive an example of the unique qualities of another human being? It might be that the sum of their gifts gives you such delight that you refocus away from all that you find ‘nauseating’.

I agree with your sentiments, but the 'bad' just seems to outweigh the 'good' these days, no matter what spin is put on it. I don't perceive myself as being negative, but over time I've definitely become a realist! But I live in hope...

Interesting article.

One can easily identify and sympathize with the writer when all those events are placed in juxtaposition to one another.

In this position, it emphasized the conflicts between those events, which may or may not be accurate.

Just a quick, superficial overview of events in the UK these last weeks might lead one to conclude we are headed for hell in a hand basket.

We'll see soon enough!

I've seen this on Facebook .
One of the comments in response was ."you want to start a war " Go ahead start a war.
The point was decent human beings still have to stand up to other humans.
As much as should live and live if we don't challenge and debate how do we improve our knowledge of others point of view and appreciate why people hold the opinions they do

Fully agree with the statement on the media though
