True loyal friends , respect , manners and failures ..
True loyal friends , respect , manners and failures ; just some griefing thoughts about the loss of morals, respect and manners ! Have you ever wondered , why real friendships in this 21st century seem to be a ‘mission impossible’ ? What is wrong with people nowadays , what is going on in this world ? Why do people perform so aggressive and reckless ?
How easy and meaningless use people the terms ‘friends’ or ‘real friendships’ these days and do they actually really care ? If you are lucky and you have got true loyal friends , or you experience other people being true loyal friends to each other , be sure these friends are friends for decades already . It seems , that nowadays such stuff as loyality, honesty and respect obviously doesn’t count anymore . Yeah .. you’ll find thousands of wise love and friendship poems about all that , but in real life it seems to be just utopia or fantasy ! When exactly did we give up on values , since when is RESPECT an extraterrestrial mystery ? Are manners out of fashion as well ? If you get to see , how some contemporaries communicate with each other , it just makes you wonder .
I have experienced a few of these so called ‘keyboard warriors’ before , especially these on FaceBook – hidden under the cap of invisibility – offending others and behaving like uneducated savages . What for ? What is the pleasure in presenting yourself as bad as possible ? What do you gain from that ? I never wasted any time on those , thanks a bunch , Mr. Zuckerberg , for the ‘block option’ on FaceBook . Just one click and woooshhhh … gone by the wind and peace to myself . I have got only that one life , and I am not willing to have it poisoned by miserable people .
Have you ever noticed , how some people change out from nowhere and nothing ? You follow a conversation , for example , just a random unimportant chat about things and stuff, all funny, all friendly, a good giggle all together. And then all of a sudden , the whole conversation shifts from light to surreal and ends up in you getting offended by people, getting things thrown at you , that you wouldn’t throw at your worst enemy. Not my cup of tea at all , I believe in respecting people and treating people the way I would like to be treated ! I have asked myself so many times , what parents have raised these guys ? Is this a matter of ‘new generation rules’ ? All , that we have learned and been given by our parents , just a waste of time ? All use – and pointless ?
I might be old-fashioned , but if having manners implies being old-fashioned , I love being old-fashioned ! I am 55 years old and have met so many people from all countries , backgrounds , different cultures and nationalities . I have come across a lot in my life , have been through a lot, as we all have . But I have never failed in respecting others ! If somebody can’t control his (or her) own temper and words , how easy to blame everybody else and give others a hard time !
People are joining heaps of online groups , webinars and courses , they call it ‘self-improvement’ ! Self- improvement , in my opinion starts with yourself , start improving on your own basic social manners before participating in civilized sophisticated conversations !
I really think , I am getting too old and tired for this mischief and misbehaviour , I had all this 30~40 years ago , just not as mean as nowadays . Actually , it is a pity, how easy could we live in peace and harmony and have a good time while we are here ?! Why do some people love stress and dispute ? Do they need that to be happy ? Is this the ‘air that they breathe’ , their daily feeling of success ? Is life not tough enough anyway ? Do they need to put a spoke in other’s wheel ? Sometimes I am not sure , should I maybe feel sorry for those people , who can’t just go with the flow and enjoy the little things in life ? Who can’t just live and let live , without giving others a hard time , just because they are not happy themselves with what they’ve got ? Oh dear , what’s wrong with all this ? I think , I have never before been that happy about getting older . How lucky are we oldies , we had the priviledge to learn , how to behave and what really matters in this life …. how rich are we !!!
Of course , this is just my very own opinion about how we should handle social togetherness in order to create a good coexistence and also just my own observations . If you don’t agree or maybe have a different point of view , or even an explanation for this common rudeness , I would love to read about in the comments.
