Indira Gandhi-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The Week

This week’s quote is by Indira Gandhi.

Indira Gandhi-B

 

When I saw this quote I knew I wanted to use it because I think more people should stop before they throw punches and hear the other person’s perspective.  People are so quick to fight, and I think everyone needs to take a step back and just listen to the other person.  You don’t have to agree or even like the person, but you need to at least hear the other person out and respect their opinions.  Not everyone will agree or think like you do and there is nothing wrong with that.

Louis D. Brandeis-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The Week

This week’s quote is by Louis D. Brandeis.

Louis D. Brandeis

When I first saw this quote I thought I had already used it, but I can’t find it anywhere so I am guessing that  I have seen it before but not used it yet.  I look around, and the society that we currently live, and I think most of us have no respect for the law because there isn’t much that people agree with anymore.  I see things happening in this country because people are so tired of feeling like no one is listening to them and what they want.  I don’t agree with most of the stuff that is being done, but I do see why people act like they do.

Lots Of Thoughts

Lots Of Thoughts

I was going to write something for the writers workshop but instead of doing that I am just going to write some of the thoughts that I have had over the past little while so that I can get them out of my head.  I am sure they won’t make much sense but I will try to explain a bit about what and why I am thinking them.  Anyway I am just going to make a list of them so you can just skim them if you want to.

  • The main thing that has been on my mind for the past few months is how both of my parents can write off their own children & families.  I have seen that I can do the same thing but I don’t think I could do this to my daughter when she grows up and wants to meet me.  I will never truly understand how they can and how I can just turning feelings off for a person and never look back.  I do think of people again but not enough to make me seek them out.  I just keep on going on and while I kind of understand that with friends I have no idea how a parent can just stop caring about their child.
  • The next thing that has been on my mind is why people still lie because let me be honest like the quote I posted on Monday people can’t remember all lies they tell so they always get caught.   My dad told a few lies about me last year or the year before and since I found that out I have no need to have him in my life.  I am sure he will end up alone and sad because he just can’t seem to tell the truth and he hasn’t figured out that he always get caught when he lies.  There have been more lies told by him than I could ever list so now I just assume everything he says is a lie.
  • I have wondered if two people can be so connected that without having talk to each other for 3 plus years that you still know when they are struggling and when they need you or someone to lean on.

Those are the three things that I have been on my mind for that past few months and I hope now that I have written them down that maybe I can stop thinking about them as much.

What has been on your mind?

8 Things People Forgot

8 Things

This week for the writers workshop I am going to write about number 3 which is: list 8 things you think people forgot how to do.  I loved this prompt because there are a few things that I think people have forgotten how to do.  I always find myself asking out loud to really no one how hard would it be to do this that or another thing depending on the situation so this post was a fun one to write and a change from the normal posts I write.

Anyway now on to 8 things people forgot how to do.

  1. They have forgotten how to use the blinker.  You would think it was an optional feature on vehicles because people rarely use them anymore.  I love when people get pissed off that I wouldn’t let them but they didn’t use a blinker because if they had I almost always let people over.
  2. People forgetting that they need to stop at red lights or even start slowing down when the light turns yellow.  I have to be honest there are times when I speed up when the light turns yellow but I am trying to break myself of that habit.
  3. People have forgotten how to move out of the fast lane when they are driving slower than the speed limit.
  4. People have forgotten how to say “Thank You” when people do something for you.  They also don’t say “excuse me” when they want to get past you in a store or any other place.
  5. Some parents have forgotten how to teach their children respect for authority & just respect in general.
  6. People have forgotten the saying “If you don’t have anything nice to say than don’t say anything at all”.
  7. Some people have forgotten that you need to work for things and that not everything is handed to you.
  8. People have forgotten how to respect other people’s belongings.  I am amazed at how people don’t care about other people’s things anymore.

Those are 8 things that I think people have forgotten. What do you think people have forgotten?

Respect

Respect

My brother had his gallbladder out on Sunday and I wanted to write about something here because I see a lack of it respect for choices that others make regarding their own bodies and/or lives.  I love people sharing information with me but I get tired of people trying to push their views on me and others.  Everyone makes different choices because everyone is different.

For example I know now my doctor doesn’t totally agree with some of my choices but she has left it up to me.  She tells me her opinions and what she would do if she was me.  I have seen a lot this going around and it upsets me because everyone makes choices based on their own lives and their own situations.

This doesn’t have to do with just health things but anything going on in people’s lives.  I have stopped sharing most things on Facebook because I get tired of people judging and/or trying to push their views on me and my other friends.  I came to realize while I was pregnant what it feels like to be judged and I try my hardest not to judge anyone.  I know that we all judge people on some level but I do my best to keep in check because I know how it felt to be judged and it is an horrible feeling.

I have friends in my life that I don’t agree with their choices but I do respect them and I also allow them to live their lives as they see fit.  There is no way that everyone in the world will agree with what you do or how you do it but people need respect their choices.

Lack Of Respect

A child who is allowed to be disrespectful to his parents will not have true respect for anyone.
Billy Graham

I am writing this post because I am worried that children in America are not being taught to respect other people.  You see all to often that people today want respect but don’t think they need to show respect.  It pisses me off to see how teenagers are treating their parents and even other teenagers that they don’t like.  I know when I was in high school there always was groups of kids that didn’t get along but for the most part we left each other alone.  Now it seems like kids go out of their way to make other people miserable.  I am having a hard time watching people do and seeing people I care about get hurt by family members.  I don’t get along with most of my family but I just ignore them.  I don’t go out of my way to hurt them.  How can a child be so disrespectful to the person who gave birth to them?  I had a rough childhood to say the least and I still can’t bring myself to disrespect my parents.  I can’t figure out why parents aren’t teaching their kids respect anymore.  How can parents sit back and be okay with their children bullying kids to the point that they commit suicide and even after the kid has passed away they are still saying rude things to them.  I truly can’t believe what the world is coming to.  You may not like everyone or even get along with everyone but you can leave them alone and not go out of your way to make people miserable.  Why people just leave each other alone.  Hell it isn’t just kids that bully either.  I have to wonder where the lack of respect has come from and if it will ever change.  I know I am rambling but I really want to know why people have changed so much and how parents can sit by and let their child treat people with such a lack of respect. 

I guess that is all I can say about it.  I am sure that I will post about this subject again because it is such a huge problem in today’s world.
