You know lately I been noticing an excessive amount of word vomit from people. I thought it was something indicative of the last year, but clearly people are not content with shutting up.
We have evolved to a society where everyone thinks what we say and think is meant to be heard and exclaimed. We have developed very strong opinions about people, events, and places that have nothing to do with us or our experience. People have gotten so out of control with speaking out that they are inadvertently shooting themselves in the foot.
Cutting off their noses despite their face…
Putting their entire foot in their mouths…
And placing the proverbial carriage in front of the horse…
Succinctly America… SHUT UP!
I have strong opinions like any natural born citizen, but if I am not well informed on the topic at hand I decide to lean back and listen and/or ask probing questions. Followed up with extensive research depending how interested I am in the topic. Honestly dealing with people you find out so much by just observing and absorbing what they are doing rather than constantly commenting.
I really don’t let folks opinions sway how I conduct and experience my life. I prefer to make my assessment of the situation so I can adapt and deal accordingly. I think this was brought to a head over a comment made on my instagram at the end of the year about an object in a photo that “allegedly” caused a rivalry between my siblings. When I saw the comment I flipped out. I didn’t respond because I’m not engaging my siblings like that at this stage of my life. I plainly don’t have time to argue folks because I will handle anyone unapologetically with extreme prejudice… and I don’t apologize anymore or appease adults because they will try you again.
So I basically just shut up now.
I already assessed the situation in its entirety and I addressed both siblings on their point of view of what happened. I compared notes and assessed what went wrong. So when another sibling made an uninformed statement it gas-lit the shit out of me. I was furthermore pissed because I was accused (by the same sibling) of taking sides when I had basically went to house to house and laid everyone out including my mother for the part we all played in it that lead to this dramatic event.
I think if people held their tongues more often or addressed each other with insight and understanding a lot of things wouldn’t “pop off”.
Another situation was with a co-worker who was trying to berate another co-worker for going on a fifteen minute break with me. She made uninformed comments and my co-worker was mature enough not to argue. I, on the other hand would stuck my dick in their feelings and fucked them slow. I have a smart ass mouth when tempted with an asshole.
I understood their concern, but your articulation is out of line.
This is what I mean by shutting up.
Not at all am I minimizing Columbine and I am very sorry for the death of those teenagers, but you can’t push people and talk out the side of your neck and not think they aren’t going to retaliate. I am not all saying go into a school blazing guns especially in light of the Newtown incident (which eternally breaks my heart).
I am saying you don’t know what kind of day they are having or had.
You don’t know who else shat on them before they got to you.
You don’t know their mental state.
You may not even know how they may feel about you.
They could have clean started fighting in there like two rabid dogs at a Black Friday sale in a Wal-Mart. If you are going to express what you feel negatively. Expect people to respond. Do not give yourself the opportunity to get molly-wopped (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=mollywop) because you are having an opinionated moment and you trying to keep it real.
Silence is golden people, embrace it.
Peace and Hair Grease,
