Not that Special to Care

I figure it is human nature to be kind and to show gratitude. When we as men come across those that do not, then we should immediately vacate the premises. It is not hard to be kind, especially to those that show, through their action, what others mean to them. Fathers should show this to their kids and wives and individuals should do this unconditionally.

However, there are some of us that would prefer to complain, bicker, fuss and berate others because we fail to recognize that we are what we are because of our action or in-action. These people will never have peace of mind. They will always be envious and jealous of others and incessantly select to blame others first for whatever without looking at themselves in the mirror. Specifically, they will blame and target those that are closest to them and who do whatever they can for them. Such people tend to be either incapable of love or afraid to love. Unfortunately, these people are selfish and are quick to state they do not care about anything. I feel sorry for these types of people for they will never be able to notice or see any blessings because they are never happy or satisfied.



They will never be able to accept and appreciate others for what they are or do because they do not see value in themselves. I say this to suggest that a good new year requires that we all should search our souls and hearts – if we have them. In addition, if we have those around us who cannot express their gratitude, appreciation and love to us, then they must go, for they will only bring us down. I was described by someone as “not being that special” to them. I am more than special to myself, too bad some other folks cannot see it – children excluded. Gifts of the heart are more important than materials purchased with money. In the long term, things dissipate but gifts of the heart linger own forever. Especially gifts that allow one to know they can depend on another when they need them, regardless of what it may be. So let’s start this new year right, let’s seriously search our souls, be honest with ourselves and others and remember, when we say mean and evil and vile things, we cannot take them back and they will server to show others how fucked up on the inside we really are.

I care though, about myself, others and my community and will forever do such.

Sigh, human nature being what it is, I have always felt the we as individuals find it easier to do harm, than to do random acts of kindness.

Beautiful words to be absorbed.

Happy New Year.
