Problems With Society

Sometimes, if you take a step back from the world, you can start to notice the flaws we have as humans. One of the main flaws I’m noticing at the minute is that people just don’t take the time to talk to each other. The most basic thing humans can do, and we don’t do it. We’ve become a world of meaningless words. The things that people actually say, don’t really matter deep down. And the words that are left unsaid mean more than anyone shall ever know. People can see someone everyday and never really know what’s going on in their lives, even to the point where they spend everyday sleeping in the same bed.

There’s been a lot of loss in the world around me lately, and it makes me wonder whether just taking the time to talk about things that actually matter…could have prevented these outcomes to some extent. Of course not everything can be resolved from opening up to someone, but you never know. Technology is a big thing in our day and age, and it kind of works as a way to fill the gaps between human encounters, to the point where it can block them from actually happening all together. To be quite honest, it’s shit and even that is slightly sugar-coating it.

I don’t really know where I’m going with this post. I guess what I’m really trying to do is get whoever’s reading this to take time out of their day to really talk to someone who they’re close to or they care about, and try to get past the bullshit of the facade that they are trying to hide behind. Although not everyone likes to admit it or complain about it, they all have something going on behind the scenes…or if your on the flip side of it, just open up to someone about how your really feeling…who knows, you might actually get a positive outcome…

Pet Peeves! 

There are many things in this life that I consider a pet peeve, however I won’t go into detail over them all. Otherwise we’d be here forever…so without further ado I give you my top 3 pet peeves.

  1. Judging others/Narrow Mindedness – this mainly focuses on hidden illnesses however it can be applied to other things. If someone walks different or acts differently or even messes up in a simple task. Think twice before you judge them. You don’t know if they have something wrong with them, or even if they’re just having a shit day, you don’t know. So think twice before you say something or even think about it, because one day you may be in a similar position and you might wish for the people around you to be a bit more considerate.
  2. Annoying People – these are the people who do things, just because they can and they know it will piss you off. These people are brilliant. One example of this oh so brilliant behaviour is when your standing in queue waiting to be served, and someone comes behind you and stands so close to (invading personal space) so that you move forward…because in their mind that’s going to get them served faster?! This also applies if your in a car, when they  keep moving closer and closer to you. (Between you and me sometimes I actually wish they would move too far and go into my car just so I can whine at them…but this is only on a bad days). 
  3. Rudeness – this is a generalised one. I like to call these people the ‘mood crushers’. These are people I meet a lot, due to working in a cafe. And sometimes it seems like they just feel the need to inflict sadness and annoyance on everyone. Pushing, complaining, being ignorant, ahh there’s so many options.

This is quite a negative blog post so I won’t go on anymore, but those are my three biggest pet peeves, and have you noticed what they have in common? People. I think this is why I like animals more…
