All the things that have happened lately have just deflated my Pollyanna bubble. Call me ridiculous or naive but I honestly believed people did the best they could. That people were, for the most part, good and decent. But my Pollyanna glasses have been shattered. They weren’t quite rose colored, I wasn’t that full of the faith of mankind, but they had a faint pink tint until lately.
Yes, I know bad things happen all the time on a global scale. But I guess I always felt like you and me, in our day to day life, we weren’t out to get anyone. We – I was trying to make my immediate world a good place, just a little at a time.
But in the last few months, I see so much hypocrisy. People ignoring whatever doesn’t align with their world view. Attacking what they don’t understand. Pointing fingers and throwing barbs when they could just accept their own portion of responsibility in a situation. Selfishness taken to the extreme. And I feel like…people just suck. Grasping for themselves. Cheering for their side as though it isn’t real humans who are losing, sometimes their lives. Lying, Stealing, throwing temper tantrums when they don’t get their own way.
What happened to humanity? Please just tell me one beautiful, heart warming thing you have witnessed in the last, I don’t care how long….
