Alright here's just a short rant I have to get off my chest, Okay, so just to start off I just want to say that this is in no way meant to hurt any people or to any specific person. So I have one thing that just drives me crazy more than anything else in this world, and I usually am a pretty calm person and try to show compassion about things. But just recently I've had a lot of people complaining about their lives very much. "Nobody loves me, my parents are so strict they don't understand, I'm so depressed with my life," ect ect.
And y'know that's okay, I get it. I've had days like that, you've had days like that, we've ALL had days like that. No body's perfect and were just human. But what really gets to me is that they just keep complaining, making it all about them, and not even doing anything about it. Not taking responsibility, and making an effort to do something, making up excuses to why they can't do anything. Bull shit, there is always something you can do, you just have to stop sucking on your thumb and get back up. Always, ALWAYS, get back up. I know it had be hard, but it can be done. I know that just laying down and pitying yourself may be easier, and I've done that before, too. But I learned from all my experiences that it makes everything worse, and only hurts you and others.
Sometimes yes, things ARE really really hard and it's okay to stop for a while and just cry, but you have to get back up. I see people try and get attention by saying how bad their life sucks, while there are people in the hospital dying. While there are being out on the battlefield putting their lives on the line, for what? For you to sulk your whole life? There are people dying from hunger, people who are abused maliciously, who have no home, and people who truly have no one that loves them and are alone.
And then there's the people who start drama because they are bored, and sulk in self pity. I wish that I could just yell out to them and say, "There are people who have it so much worse than you do, you don't know how good you really have it. Please don't give up yet, you are so special, and amazing, and beautiful! You have so much to offer this world if you would try!" And know that they would understand. If they would just take all the bad things that happened and use it to make them stronger, instead of using it as a shield.
I mean not everyone is like that but...there's just too many from what I see. I just wish that they would at least try and not give up when things get rough and it doesnt work out the first few times. Ah, maybe I'm just being a bit critical because I've been through a lot and see things differently. I mean I know what it's like to feel like that, trust me. I do.
I dunno, maybe I'm over-thinking this, but that's just what's been eating at my mind lately. It's just I've seen to many great and wonderful people succumb to this. Well okay, I'm done. If you read this until then end, thank you. -Derryn
You're are right, some people only stay regretting and don't make something to resolve it. I have a friend like that, when she make something wrong she get depressed! and I try to cheer her but sometimes I just get tired...
I don't understand why some people try and get attention saying that their life is a shit, everybody have our own problems, the life isn't easy.
Yeah, maybe you really need to let the things out and talk to someone but being saying that your life is wrong always you make a mistake isn't good.
You know the score your right a lot of people have it much worse I have a friend who may not have long to live and hes getting on with his life fine he's that kinda person you want to hang out with yknow?, You got a good head on your shoulders.
A little less complaining and a little more commitment goes a long way right?
Right If Im ever in the dumps he just tells me straight "Get a hold of yourself" Now that I think about it he has it a lot worse than me...Your a really impressive person, thanks hehe you know I think I understand a few things better because of you

Well said young man The most important thing Ive learned is that people will always be more worried about the dumb things until something serious happens, then they really know what life is about...some of us know more than others. Im thankful for my struggles in a sense though...at least now I know that I can come back from nothing, be strong, not give up. But for those that have no clue what its like to really suffer, I feel sorry for them, their lives are shallow and meaningless. They strive for things with no real passion, if they even strive at all. And as for all those wonderful people that let things get them down....you definitely SHOULD tell them they are special and wonderful and somebody IS thinking about them...I took twenty minutes of my day and wrote every single friend of mine on Facebook a note with a memory i shared with them and reasons why I care about them. I let them know that even tho it seems like nobody cares sometimes, someone does. I may not comment on their status all the time, but I see it, and they cross my mind. It meant a LOT to all of them.... So maybe you should do that too....take some time to tell people in your life what you notice about them, what makes them cool and special, and that they are thought of and cared for.... Wow...I guess I kinda ranted too....lol...sorry!
Ah exactly! You took the words right from my mouth, I completely agree. Thank you for commenting on this. Yes, I mean sometimes I think about if it's really their fault for being that way, if they never knew anything really bad in life, if you get what I'm saying. Yeah, it can really make a difference to people to tell them things like that, you are an amazing person!

Awwww Youre too kind... I get what youre saying...people are a product of their environment and what theyre used to. If someone grows up thinking its normal to live like a slob, thats their lot in life. If you dont know any better, you just dont. You should definitely try writing everyone you know sometime. It makes their day and sometimes, theyre having just the worst day ever and a few kind words makes all the difference to them. Oh, and your welcome It was a good post, so I had to comment lol.
this is very true. i rant to you since your a easy person to rant to since you've dealt with this before but i mean people can go OVERBOARD (i think im kinda going overboard, sorry to say) and when people make up lies for pity. no offense to you attention lovers, i know everyone needs some attention and it can get hard at times but i seriously sometimes wanna punch someone in the FACE because of lieng to worry others about them! (of course afterwards i help you up and tell you im so sorry that this inconvenience occured, since i wasted my time, and now you have to get that fixed xD) and thus yeah thats it. but basically i agree
Heh oh Xander. Yes I get what you're saying. Yesterday I wanted to punch a wall. I just had someone complaigning to be yesterday about something trivial, while later that day I had to visit a family member in the hospital. She was so cold and pale, and looked in a lot of pain, so tired. And it just gets to ya y'know? You just want to show other people that and say "You have it so good! Shoosh you're complaining!"
O_o I know my parent's love me, it's just that when I rant I RANT. It's because I'm angry and need to say a few things. I try not to though, I normally only do when I'm truly upset about something much like the journal I posted not seconds ago. I seek advice through my "rants" And a lot of the time people are very helpful. It's often irritating to me as well, but sometimes you have to irritate yourself to feel better. (IF THAT MAKES SENSE)
Yeah, although it can be good to get it out then keep it all in, better then having it dwell up inside, right? So I read your journal and yes I agree with you, it can be quite confusing sometimes. They probably just want to help, but you're your own person and should do what you truly believe in no matter what anyone says. I say whatever your dream is, go chase it!
Ah, I agree aswell! Its much better to overcome difficulties then to lay their throwing a pity-party. I also have thought over this too but I am scared. I want my friends to overcome hard times, and so I support them. but what would happen if hey become like those people who try to shut out all emotions? Would it be my fault then? The world is so confusing sometimes....but I'm glad theirs people like you to encourage others.
I hear ya Derryn, I used to be that way, then just accepted that if you suffer from depression, it doesn't matter what's going on, you're going to find something to complain about. soooo I stopped complaining
I absolutley agree. Just because you life sucks, doesn't mean you can can just complain about and do nothing. People other than you have so much worse. They're dying. Such as my best friend. When he was about six years old his father ended abusing him and his brother, starving them, burning them, sometimes even beating and cutting them up. He was even molested one time. Eventually, his father kicked him out and had to live on the streets. Their mother found out and took them with her, and he now has the peaceful life he now has. He never even smoked or drink once in his life, too. He was one of the reason why I got out of my emotional puberty stage. o3o
Wow, that's a lot to happen to one kid. I'm glad he's doing good now, he must have a lot of strength to do what he is doing now. That must've taken a lot in him . Now only if we could get the rest of the world to realize this, and how good they have it.
xD yes because tackling someone into a lake fixes all there problems now doesnt it? (ive been tackled into a 3-inch river with razor-sharp rocks, does that count as over-the top excess love? xD anyway) well glad to hear that they are doing great now.
