Things I Learned Today / Saturday, August 21, 2021

Things I learned today…

What is with the actually desire to be oppressed? Are people sitting around thinking up ways to be victims? It’s beyond comprehension.

Actual oppression would make these people’s heads spin. Nobody should be discriminated against, but every, little concocted condition isn’t ground-breaking or martyrdom worthy. Geez.

I wish there could be a National Put Down Your Bullshit & Just Be Human movement across America. Nobody wants to give up their plight, though, and just love, respect, help, and hold up others.

I’m going to be a single NPDYB&JBH activist. Join me. (We will have to shorten the name if it’s going to fit on a t-shirt, though.)

I read this today: You should not confuse someone’s free time with their availability. Read that again. It’s so true.

Keith made burnt ends again today.

You know, I also think we should stop feeling emotional about what other people think. People can think whatever they want to, and we don’t have to get all worked up about it. That’s on them. And I’ll add that my not getting worked up about it shouldn’t label me as uncaring or unmoved. It means I let you bear the weight of your own thoughts and opinions. I don’t have to bear it, too.

Geez, that was a good one.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
