I’m so very tired of people wanting the world to rally behind their bruised feelings or inconvenienced day. Lately, every social media site I’m on has been nothing but complaints and rants. If someone got double charged at a store, they post it on social media and they expect everyone to boycott that store because of one mistake. Then there are people who are offended by something said on a TV show and they want the world to rally behind their hurt feelings.
Sorry, cupcake. The world is full of people with opinions that you aren’t going to like. Fight your own battles. If there really is some hatred or injustice directed at someone in particular, I’ll support my friends. But, if it’s just an honest mistake or something that one person is taking personal that wasn’t directed at them, then I have to bow out and just let them work it out on their own.
Just take a step back and look at the big picture. Try to think about how this is going to affect your life in the long run. Does this one situation you are getting all worked up over really have any bearing on your life and how you live it? Probably not. Simmer down and move on.
We all have our own battles to fight. And, just so we’re clear, there are bigger battles to fight than getting your panties in a wad over someone you’ve never met saying something dumb, someone making a mistake, or someone expressing their opinion.
