From the title of this blog, you probably think I’ll be talking about grammar rules. WRONG!
I’m actually gonna be delving into culture / political issues. I know, I know. I can already hear people complaining. But this is my blog, I pay for it, so I can speak my mind. If you don’t like it, there’s the way out.
You probably have to be older than the hills to understand this reference. 😂🤣 So let’s jump into the fray.
Are you a BECAUSE this happened to me person, or an EVEN THOUGH this happened to me person? If you’re the first instead of the latter, that’s why our country / society is so screwed up.
A BECAUSE type of person is someone who makes excuses for their actions. They usually feel sorry for themselves and blames everyone else for their problems.
Hey, I get it. When I was a teenager, I used to dwell in self-pity. But back in my day, we were told, ‘Quit feeling sorry for yourself. It’s unbecoming.’ And it is. No one likes people who whine all the time.
This VICTIMHOOD is killing our nation. I deserve this because such-and-such happened to me. My life sucks because such-and-such happened to me. I want to ruin your life because such-and-such happened to me.
Geez, grow up! You bring nothing to the table with all your negativity.
But our current government LOVES this attitude because it’s dividing our country. You know that old saying, Divide and Conquer. Yep, that’s where we are. On the verge of civil war.
So, what about the EVEN THOUGH people?
These are people that no matter what life throws at them, they grit their teeth and keep on moving forward with their lives. No matter how painful, no matter how much suffering. Cuz’ we all know life ain’t fair.
Is it easy? Of course it’s not.
But when you’re lying on your deathbed, looking back at your life, do you want to see all the negativity that you caused? All the people you stole joy from?
Or do you want to be proud of your choices? That when you came to that fork in the road of BECASUSE or EVEN THOUGH, you choose to suck it up and keep on trucking. For yourself and the people around you.
And the greatest thing is, if you are a BECAUSE person, you can change. Changing one’s mindset isn’t easy either. But you can do it. I know you can. Let’s make this world a better place for everyone.
