A Bit of a Rant

I hate the hands-off-approach to life.

It makes no sense to me. Why do people scratch their heads and ask themselves the obligatory question, "Why me? Why is this happening to me?". No, I am not all heartless and apathetic to victims of unfortunate events, yet at what point do people look in the mirror and accept some personal responsibility for the path on which they have choosen to travel?

Maybe it is too painful to look straight in the face of the person who made the poor decisions? Sometimes people cannot connect the dots and recognize that one action will lead to one consequence. Some people use the permission statement, "Well, I was just following my heart.". Whatever happened to common sense?

Mistakes are a part of a well-lived life. We should all mistakes, but is it so elusive of a concept to grasp that WE were the ones making the mistakes?

I am a harsh woman tonight. Don't mess.

I feel better that I got that off my chest.

re: this post, did something not so pleasant happen to someone you know? i'm having tons of ideas run through my head. I know what you mean though.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do, though, is to point the finger at yourself.

My cousin made some poor choices and is now stuck in a less than desirable situation - and I just can't feel sorry for her. It's rough.

Hi Sara - I'm responding to the wrong post. I enjoyed the 6 "Saras" - after reading them, I can understand why we're friends. At least 3-4 of your "yous" are "me" too!
