I am sick of the paradrama, y’all…and even more sick of hearing people bitch about the paradrama.
“Like, OMFG, I am too old for drama”…or…”Like, my team does not associate with drama”…this is as they proceed to perpetuate drama or chastise and insult other people. Nothing like the smell of a hypocrite in the morning!
I would really like to know at which point defending oneself or those one cares about make the giant swap from integrity to drama. Sounds like a good cop out for cowards and people who would prefer to run their mouths undercover.
We should now suddenly be afraid to speak up when we feel strongly about certain things under the guise of being somehow above human emotion and instinct and dismissing such an inclination as drama?
When did everyone opt to take on facades and pretenses rather than own the person they are? Are people seriously telling me that when a person feels that something is worth defending that we should just lie down, roll over, and take whatever shit is sent our way?
If people just gave up on things they cared about and dismissed such as drama, there would be no United States and forget England, much of the world would still be under the rule of the Roman Empire. Have you learned nothing of speaking out against wrongs, no matter how trivial they may appear? Should we just suck it up on smaller moral infractions such as lying and hostility or does the allowance of such not lead to further, larger moral infractions?
I feel that some things are worth fighting for and prime among those things are my personal integrity and the integrity of those that I affiliate with and the projects I work on. I will defend these things. If you want to call it drama, feel free. I will call it standing up for what I believe in. I’d rather die for something than stand for nothing and if this world can’t handle it, you know where to shove it.
“Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose yourself to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of ‘crackpot’ than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.”
- Thomas J. Watson
Some people…are…just…wow. Wow. Wow! WOW! ::crosses her eyes as she falls to her side on her big, fluffy bed::
On June 22, I received the following written to a mailing list I had just joined:
The reason I post this poem here is because 12 years ago I had a paranormal love affair with an invisible being. Eventually he left because I let my fear get the best of me and since I could not see him I thought he might have been something evil, when in fact I now know he was a human that had telepathic and telekenetic abilities. I do miss him terribly and wish I had not been afraid of him.
As I sit thinking of what might have been,
If I had not let fear creep in,
Seeing neither here nor there,
Knowing only that you cared.
Oh what life may have meant,
If only I had went,
Without fear into your waiting arms,
Knowing in my heart there would be no harms.
Yet the fear got the better of me,
And in stupid haste did flee,
From the one man that truly loved me.
Oh were, oh were can he be,
Only now to never speak to me,
Chastising me for my fear you see,
How my young mind did not see,
That only he was meant for me.
The passion we once had,
Never to return it’s sad,
With all the healing he did in me,
At last helping me see,
The person I am truly meant to be.
For to him I can only thank,
For all that I have become and to be frank,
In my heart there is a bit of jealousy,
For the love he no longer feels for me.
Light now creeping in,
Where sadness used to be,
Because deep in my heart you see,
I still feel the love he once had for me.
In love and light,
Wait…DUH…I’ve heard this story before!!! Well, sorta…
