You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch…

Unfortunately, it’s not just him.

Some people confound me sometimes/oftentimes/almost always.

What makes them choose unkind coldness when they could be joyous and uplifting? Why do people gaslight and ridicule emotions- the very thing that makes us human?

I have a theory. I think that sometimes people are purposely demeaning in order to destroy other’s peace of mind. Maybe they get joy out of it. Maybe they’re coached to do so.

Either way, it’s toxic and not a very productive way to live.

When one adds positions of responsibility and power to that sewage, you get a mind-numbing shit stew.

We have ONLY ONE JOB, really, as humans. BE KIND, above all.

Our other job in my opinion is to CALL OUT INJUSTICE when it is happening. Don’t let people abuse others. Don’t let them abuse YOU.

Abuse comes in many creative forms. Sometimes micro aggressions can be worse than outright battery.

What motivates your cruelty? Is it fear, power, racism, religion, politics, your childhood abuse?

Don’t bother answering. It isn’t for you- my mind rambles for ME.

You have to live with your karma. I will live with mine.
