And it's not their fault. I'm a hard person to read.
I know I'm not the only person like this though. And I joined this site in hopes of finding others who are similar to me. Not the case apparently!
The straw that broke the camels back though seemingly small, was a thread about music that moves you. I happen to be a pretty big rock/metal fan. No I don't worship the devil, no I'm not all gothed out. Quite the opposite actually. I am a successful business owner, mother, giver to society, believer in good energy. I just happen to love music with a lot of substance to it. So I participated in a thread about music that speaks to you and I posted a song that moves me (By and Down, by A Perfect Circle). That song is beautifully orchestrated. Beyond words in my opinion. And some donkey had the nerve to respond to me with a bible verse about light and darkness. Omg. Come on people. THANK YOU for your concern, but my soul doesn't need saving any more than yours. I spent the majority of my life figuring out my beliefs and I have a tight, personal relationship with God that doesn't include other people and their opinions about how I should be living my life. If I mess up, it's between God and myself.
The kicker here was that others "liked" this persons response.
It's just really annoying that people can't open their minds to something different. Different always means bad to some people and that has been an issue for me my entire life.
I've always been different. And everyone has always had a problem with it. I'm half black/half white. Don't fit in into either ethnic group. And don't fit in with others who are half black/half white because we all look different!! And excuse me for saying this, but every mixed person I know has an over sense of entitlement because they believe they are better looking than everyone else. I am even guilty of that thought process.
I've homeschooled my kids. For many reasons, but ultimately it was my decision and I don't need the masses opinions about why it's "bad".
I don't like to drink alcohol. Not socially acceptable apparently.
I like to wear my hair straight. I'm "denying my race". Which race exactly? Because I am not one, complete race.
I have tattoos. I guess I'll forever be trashy and never have a good job. Owning a successful, legitimate business isn't a good job.
I DON'T weigh 200 pounds after 3 kids and take extremely good care of myself. "Eat a burger for once!" "What, are you starving yourself?" I hear all the time.
I don't enjoy talking about the person who double parked outside and ruined your night. Or how you had to wait for 30 minutes at your doctors office so you left them a bad review.
I enjoy talking about music, life experiences that changed you, current events and the BS surrounding our society. But I guess that's wrong and weird.
Well I had more of a point to this rant. But now I'm just tired. I could go on and on and on. Pages. But nobody really cares. Everyone just has their own agendas to push onto people.
