Living in the World of Excess

Temper tantrums, bullying, wanton disregard
Lack of consideration, ingratitude, and never trying hard.
Babying, pampering, no inkling of "tough love"
Manipulation, being two-faced and feeling that you're above
all the others in the world and walking away unscathed.
Everything handed to, yet not knowing how to give back
No accountability for one's actions and always 'under attack'.
The result of this, no lessons learned,
but do as you wish and walk away
leaving not you, but others spurned.

LOL! Just some late night ramblings :) No real meaning to my crappy 'poem'. Yes, I know. It's horrible! LOL!

Okay, I won't lie to you. There really is meaning behind my rant!

I just learned that for some people, instead of taking the more difficult route and rising to the occasion, some people would rather just not assume accountability for their actions. It really bothers me. I can't stand those "Poor Me's" out there. Suck it up and take responsibility for your actions. I will be the first person to tell you about how imperfect I am. I am full of faults and I realize this.
I am sometimes impatient, hot tempered and emotional. I'm sensitive, hate criticism (even if it's 'constructive')! However, I realize these flaws and make a conscious effort to work on them. I just can't stand when others get all cocky and are able to walk away from a situation as though they are invincible. Where is the justice in that?

Hubby, thanks for your continued support and love. You really get me through the most trying situations.

Jimmy, thanks for the e-mail messages tonight. I really needed the pick me up!

I gotta wonder, Chrissy, who the 'some people' are in your comment.

And, ain't it nice? You got 2 gents cheering you up as you go along. Normally, my 'some people' are, well, not female. :) Sorry!

And, Chrissy, I actually like the poem! Who said it's horrible? I especially like the last three lines... only an English teacher could have ever come up with a word that could rhyme with "learned." (Heck, I can't even think of one now myself!)

Big hugs, Chrissy! I'm telling you, it's the Monday Mlues, hon.

Thank you :) You are such a breath of fresh air! Yes, I guess I'm just rather annoyed and frustrated with some people. When an opportunity for learning or improvement presents itself, wouldn't you think one would grab that opportunity? Instead, the complete opposite occurs. This leads me to see how there are so many younger people in the world who feel they are entitled to everything and don't have to do anything to get whatever they want. Some people are being taught how to 'dodge' responsibility and accountability of their actions and when they realize they can get away with things, it makes them all the more arrogant and cocky. It bugs me when people can strut around like a peacock knowing that they had just gotten away with something that they shouldn't have. What kind of message are we sending them? Self-indulgence, self-centeredness, arrogance...

LOL! Oh, don't worry. I'm just making broad generalizations here. I'm not talking about anyone in particular. I'm just thinking way too much about something I shouldn't really care about.

As much as I would love to divulge who the "some people" are in this un-poem, let's just say that it's no one in particular and just a general everyone. LOL! j/k
Tee hee! Kim, you always make me laugh :) Thanks for that! The un-poem...well, it was something I just pumped out since I was so frustrated and angry. Well, maybe not angry. I think it was more like annoyed than anything. I was just thinking about how many people, if given the knowledge that they can get away with things without any accountability for their actions, could make really brilliant and crafty criminals.

I know I may sound like I'm taking this overhoard, but seriously, think of it.
*the ability to manipulate situations and words
*the ability to always come up with a story to cover your butt
*being able to get away with things
*being taught that there are always ways out of a situation--where you don't have to face the problem head on (or you don't even have to see that there is a problem in the first place)
*being able to walk away and know that you can do this again and again because you've always been able to get away with things.

What a better way to create criminal minds. If there's no accountability for one's actions, then there's nothing. Am I being a bit dramatic here? LOL!

Way to vent girl! You can't hold it inside, or you'll explode!LOL!!!

I love that poem! In fact, If my ex-wife were to read it she would say, "So you've met my ex-husband?"LOL!!!!!!

Hopefully "someone" will see the error in what they missed out on.
And return to you one day with their lessons learned, and their feelings turned!
