Anyone else with me?
I have spent more of my time angry since starting menopause at roughly 50 years of age, than all of my first fifty years combined. When my hormones conked out, I became horribly irritable. Thankfully I was already divorced by then or who knows what may have transpired!
Today I had to delete a rant I made on a Facebook post from WXYZ-TV channel 7. They just confirmed a body found was that of 13-year-old Deontae Mitchell who was seen being kidnapped by a man, whom they have since arrested. The kidnapping was reportedly committed on Tuesday night, May 31st and an amber alert was issued by at least the following day, Wednesday. Now another child in Detroit is dead at the hands of some monster. I am starting to realize why all the other animal kingdom fears human animals so much. We are horrible creatures!
Without proper training we are dangerous and unstoppable except by deadly force just like any other wild, willful animal. This is not the way it was meant to be. Hence something called religious training. Most, if not all cultures have a base belief in a God. Most believe you will be punished by this God if you defy His word and defile His world. This is what I was taught and I believe this to be the truth because it makes perfect sense. The lies are that no such God exists so go ahead, if you’re feeling lucky, and do whatever strikes your fancy for the moment. This is where liberal ideology will eventually destroy everything in its path.
All civilizations that have stood the test of time have had strict taboos on many things and rightly so. I have watched our society in America slowly disintegrate by allowing small groups of people to go against society’s accepted norms in various ways from promiscuity to rampant use of drugs and alcohol. Every time a group is allowed to stray and “do their own thing” instead of the right thing, their society as a whole weakens. Do some of these people honestly think the rest of us are acting on our every impulse? That we are living our dreams and doing our own thing? No we are taking care of them and others by sacrifice and doing the right thing just like some of our parents did by getting to bed early so they could put in a long day’s work the next day instead of sneaking out to see a secret lover or get so high they couldn’t even make it into work the next day.
Women who cared made sure they were married to a stable, sober man before having unprotected sex and bringing some poor child into the already cold, cruel world. Now it’s more important to be “turned on” or “thrilled” because that’s living your dream and our liberal media is being sure to let us know that this is the most important thing in life. Thankfully there are modern folks still being raised by good, loving parents old school that realize the personal satisfaction of a job well done in all aspects of a well lived life.
There are sayings about regrets at the end of your life for things you didn’t try. Unfortunately there are more regrets by those that tried things they shouldn’t have. Don’t believe everything you hear.
Oh how I wish that meant that we could encircle insanity but insanity is rapidly encircling the world.
It is brought on by the unbelievers in these, the end times.
An example of this insanity is when I make a comment somewhere online that the reason a person murdered or some horrific act was just committed is because this was a person that did not walk in the spirit of the Lord, the spirit of love. I see the responses reminding me of the crusades and pedophile priests, of which I respond with the truth that these people obviously did not know Jesus, were imposters, fakes and it is ridiculous to even suppose that these folks in any represent the Christ. These are the comments of those who do not know Him.
This shows me that many people lack critical thinking skills and just plain common sense. Obviously you don’t walk in the Word if you hurt others in anyway, period. It’s one thing to say something accidentally offensive or that the truth offends someone who wishes to be offended. They better take a much better look within or maybe you need to think things out before you speak. Most people that hurt others are hurting. This does not mean they had a bad life or were abused in their lives, but obviously the way you treat others is pretty much the way you think of yourself, how you feel about your life.
Happy people seldom hurt others physically or verbally. Most people are unhappy, lost, bored, angry, you name it. Most don’t walk in the Word or even know how to accept the peace that Christ offered the true believers.
Important thing to remember is the way you accept and treat others is pretty much what you really mean for yourself. This should scare some of you.
We only have one world and one chance in it. How many care to try and make this a better world for them being here, rather than destroying it for someone else?
Especially for those who don’t believe in heaven and hell, if you think this is all there is, why wouldn’t you feel sorry for your brother and try to make his or her time here on earth a little easier?
Dare to be someone’s hero. You will only get one chance in one place at one time.
The other day I recalled a conversation I had with my grandmother many years ago. Wasn’t long or memorable, so I think this is why I didn’t really give it much thought until recently.
My entire life I have always done the right thing. Since I was young, I have worked hard, played fair, never tried to get something for nothing, always reacted to others good fortune with happiness. I was decent, honorable and helped people out when I could. Most of my family was not like this, to put it kindly, and I noticed this.
I asked my grandmother why she thought I was so different from my siblings, not trying to hint that there may have been a mix up in the hospital, though none of us look that much alike. My grandmother simply said that she had no idea why people are the way they are. Why siblings raised pretty much the same way could be as different as Cain and Abel. That was it. No thinking or trying to figure things out. She had no idea and neither do I to this day. I still don’t know why we are so different and that I have never had much contact with them due to some of their life choices and behaviors that I cannot understand and do not agree with. They appear to take after our mother who always loved drama and even though she was not a dishonest person, she loves gossip and nick named me goodie-two-shoes which she meant as a put-down, but I took as a compliment.
I tried not to judge them harshly my entire life, but surprisingly, it grows harder to do this the older I get. Soon after I hit menopause, I began to feel more angry and irritated about things that previously did not bother me. I think that’s where the term “old biddies” comes from. I now know why the Bible states not to be yoked with non-believers. They will only bring you down literally or figuratively and after a while it gets real old! After a while you start thinking, who do certain people think they are, why do they think they don’t need to follow rules and that the world owes them a living?!
Something I was thinking about and praising God that I obviously knew I was His child from the beginning. This does not mean I am perfect by a long shot, but my heart is a pure heart and that is me. I know that now and no matter how hard my life has been I thank God for always being there for me and thank Him for Jesus to guide us and ultimately save our souls! I don’t know why I have such a grateful heart and why others with more blessing than I, do not. This is what leads some to self-destruct. They don’t appreciate what they have and end up losing it.
