Evolution is not only going backwards it's on a downward spiral. The mind gets smaller while the ego...oh boy... the ego is flying like an artillery shell and landing in non suspecting faces, backs or just feelings.
Don't get me wrong, I am not one of the touchy-feely-crying people. I am not an easily offended person, actually my nerves are even stronger now than ever. And keeping these factors in mind i happen to remember a thought I read once when browsing random shit in the net.
"Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes."
-Steven Winterburn - (or whatever I just googled it so I would know who I quote)
Thinking a little harder on the subject you either find out you ARE indeed surrounded by assholes or you realise you ARE an asshole. Well...we are all assholes, more or less, so yeah....you get my point.
The real question is "What the fuck is up with the ignorance and egocentricity of people around us?" It's not like a cloud of Crazy Gas swept the world over night. Certain individuals just argue with no knowledge on the matter what so ever and seeing they can't win...resort to violent outbursts and swearing. They don't listen and never will.
Knowing that I'm surely not the only person who is observing this kind of behavior of people, I can't help but ask myself what is going on. The only rational explanation that comes to mind is that we don't stop to think no more.
We simply just don't care, I don't care, you don't care, they don't give a damn...we just don't give a flying one.
It's a financial crisis in several places around the world (my country included, actually where is this place crisis-free from any sort of problems?). Some say this is what causes the high temper and the huge amounts of disrespect.
It's not the ego that brings us the glory. It's the experience and knowledge, every book, every new skill...not the "I know everything, but who said I have to prove it. I'll just be an asshole about shit" attitude.
I don't even know where the hell am I going with this no more. I just want to conclude these thoughts with this:
Never forget where you started from and what you started as.
Forgetting your roots and principles is the easiest way to destroy yourself, your friendships with people who give a fuck about you and a shitload of opportunities.
Life is fucking hard, life is unfair but that doesn't mean you have to make it even more difficult for yourself. Have an individual etiquette and some damn values, for a man with NO values there is no one to value his existence...not a single soul!
