Can we all stop victimizing ourselves?
Tainting every golden opportunity with a selfish mind - we’re all guilty.
“I’m always the one that gets hurt” or “They never try why should I even care” or my personal favorite “You don’t understand what I’m going through.”
It’s sickening because the amount of sensibility and kindness in the human race has plummeted. Always pointing and laughing at outsiders, and constantly hating from within.
Oh no, it’s never our faults. Because we try really hard and we have hearts of gold. We’re sinless and innocent. That’s why it’s never our fault, it’s always someone else’s. I’ve been framed, I’m the scapegoat.
Stop. Cry about it no more. Because I’m sure everyone else is too busy crying about their own lives to even care about yours.
I have to keep reminding myself of how fortunate I am. I have to keep reminding myself of the amazing opportunities I’ve been exposed to. I have to keep reminding myself to keep an open mind and ear. Because I’m done whining about my life. Because I’m grateful and fortunate.
And someday I’m going to spread that feeling with people who aren’t as fortunate and maybe in return I can gain a bit of this sensibility I’ve lost while treading on mainstream society.
It really results from dehumanization… we pretty much act like the people who suffer in 3rd world countries aren’t real people but people here sympathize so strongly with those in our bubble… as if Bergen County was the whole world and their friends and family are the only kind of people that exist, usually divided as either shallow or trustworthy.
