Lately, I have been seriously losing my faith in humanity. I just feel like no one treats people with the same respect they feel they deserve anymore. What ever happened to the Golden Rule?
I take pride in the fact that I always try to be upfront, honest, and respectful of everyone. Don't get me wrong... I'm not perfect, and I don't begin to think that I am. I know I make mistakes sometimes. I know I am selfish at times and treat others poorly. However, it is never a constant thing and it is never intentional and I always feel terrible once I realize the error of my ways.
It's so funny how you learn so much about someone simply by watching how he/she acts around others. I think I have a pretty good sense of character, and I tend to shy away from people who give me bad vibes. But there are the occasional ones that slip through the proverbial cracks and pull a fast one on me. Those are the worst ones of all. If you are going to be a shitty person, at least be that same person upfront and don't lead me to believe you are someone entirely different.
I'm not even the one who is being treated poorly most of the time. However, I refuse to associate with people who are sketchy towards other people because eventually that sketchiness will effect me. I don't want nor do I need their drama in my life. It took me a long time to learn this lesson but once I did... it wasn't long before I realized who I needed to eliminate from my life.
I actually deleted my personal Facebook page several days ago because I've just become so disgusted with the people on there. I constantly found myself rolling my eyes out of my head at the things posted on there! It is so disgusting to me when people are trying so hard to be someone they aren't or kissing someone's ass who they don't even like or attempting to prove to the world they are the most loved person in the world. Gimme a break.
I am in the process of creating a page for my blog and only using Facebook for that use. I love my Blogger friends to death, but I still find it sad that I'm closer to some of you than I am to people I've actually met.
Does anyone else ever feel this way?
