Daily Prompt: A Helpful Dose of 1950’s Guilt

might just be what this messed up world needs!

I will never forget when the liberals started spreading their propaganda of insanity in which you were never responsible for your own actions and I quote “The most important person in the whole wide world is you, and you should know it.”  Some of you may have heard this commercial for self-esteem or whatever they were hoping to solve for some selfish little snot.  Granted there are the abused and I was one of them, but this kind of false propaganda does not help anyone.

The actual guilt I now suffer from is the fact that I almost never spoke up most of the times in my life.  I have guilt for times I should have said things that I didn’t for one reason or the other, mostly because I thought it was better to shut your mouth and mind your own business and I never had the overpowering urge as some do to control others.

I sometimes I wish I would have told people what I really thought about certain things they were doing that really were self-destructive in the long run.  I wish I would have been able to have the maturity I now possess to realize that someone might just listen.  It wasn’t that I didn’t care, but I was so scared to speak up and make them mad or hurt their feelings, I would just listen.  I’m sure they liked it at the time, but when I have come to see the long-term results, I regret it deeply.  Sometimes I wonder if my ex-best friend would be here today if I would have said or done certain things back when we were young.  Either that or we would have stopped talking a lot earlier.
