Blah! We all have moments in our lives where we get down and blue. I try not to vent on my blog, but at the same time it's MY BLOG. In the words of Eric Cartman from South Park, "Whatever! I'll do what I want!" (Sorry to those who don't get the joke!) Also, I know I am not the only one who likes advise or appreciates honesty. I read on a blog a few months back that you shouldn't use your blog "to air your dirty laundry". Well I agree that there are many things that you shouldn't do as a blogger. Like, bad mouth people or other bloggers. How sad is that? Recently I have read mean comments left on some blogs and I have also read hateful posts about people. Wow, that's bad Karma and lame!!!!!
Anyways, the point of this post is maybe to get some advise. I have been struggling with some things for the past 6 months, maybe even longer. I just don't know what to do or how to shake it off. I am basically a happy person. I love my life and I have a great husband. My problem is how much I have changed as a person.
Love this song! Fits my mood! Florence & The Machine \\ Shake it Out
I care about different things, my views on issues have changed and I feel lost and frustrated because of it. All I want is for people to believe in the things I believe in and care the way I do. How do you do this though? This is all new to me. I used to not care about anything, now I feel I care too much. I feel it draining the life out of me. I don't know how to bring it up to people. Where do you start?
Mostly it's environmental issues. I love the quote, "Be the Change You Wish to See In The World!" Oh, it's so perfect! It sums up how I feel. Yet, how do I influence others to follow me on this awesome journey called life? I try to lead by example, but it doesn't seem to be helping. One of my good friends does see eye to eye with me on every level. She said to me the other day....
I think she hit the nail on the head. The world has left me heartbroken.
Maybe I should stop educating myself on issues? It's overwhelming the way I feel.
I don't understand why people don't recycle.
I don't understand why dolphins and whales are being killed everyday.
I don't understand why people don't care.
Every other issue in the entire world doesn't matter without a healthy planet.
I feel this post is kinda heavy, but I believe honesty is the best policy.
If I wasn't being honest, I wouldn't be being me. :)
So how do you talk to family and friends about issues?
I feel like I need to be open about my feelings and see where that gets me.
How do you cope with issues that are important to you, but don't seem to matter enough to others?
Soon I plan to share with you my favorite documentaries from Netflix. All the things that have changed me.
