Change Is Gonna Come

Change Is Gonna Come

I had a horrible day yesterday, which was capped off with some news that I expected, but that still floored, offended, and hurt me. I am appalled at the level of unprofessionalism some people put forth in their chosen fields. I am glad I always maintain my dignity and self-respect, not just as a person, but in my work. I will be filing a complaint against the vile bitch in question, but if I ever hear her voice in a public place, I will not be held accountable for my actions. Some people just don’t get that you don’t say certain things to people, no matter what. I held my tongue, which is a huge accomplishment for me, but I also know that keeping my mouth shut doesn’t mean I am weak and it doesn’t mean someone else has won. It means I’ve held on to a piece of myself, and that I’ve maintained my core beliefs and values.

So this morning, I needed this blast of inspiration that Gavin DeGraw sings so impeccably, it damn near moves me to tears.

    • Some people have a serious problem with talking down to people they do not know, have never met, and automatically believe they are superior to. I know I wasn’t my best self, but I also know I wasn’t a dismissive bitch either, insulting someone and telling them that their health is of no importance. Who does that?!
      A lot of things boil my blood, I’m a very intense personality to deal with, but I also don’t come at people like that right off the bat. If a person engages me negatively, I’m either going to react or disengage. I reacted and I’m angry, but I feel justified in that because I have a strong sense of right and wrong. I will never understand other people’s superiority complexes, especially when they aren’t warranted. Keep your ego to yourself, ya know?

      • Some people believe that their ideas are bigger than their ego’s, and they will act upon it. It is ridiculous but nothing you say or do will change their minds about this. I’ve had to deal with this with close friends and I just can’t seem to grasp their ideology, and they are resilient in their resolution. I don’t give in or break but I do speak my mind upon certain matters. You are not alone in this, and although it saddens my heart to read it, at least I feel less of a lone ranger.

      • I know. This particular situation though was all ego. I don’t respond well to people who talk to hear the sound of their own voice and won’t let you get a word in edgewise.
        I always speak my mind, which is probably part of the problem because most people can’t have a civilized conversation with anyone unless you agree with them completely. I’ve tried very hard to dial it back a lot over the last few years, but sometimes anger just rises up and you can’t stamp it out quick enough. It’s kind of like having a discussion with someone over religion or politics. Everyone else thinks they’re right, and they’re not open to anything else. I’m not a fan of shoving that in people’s faces. I’m not a preachy type.
        You’re not a lone ranger hon. There are more of us out there than either of us probably realize. Maybe that’s why we find each other at times, ya know? I know I tend to draw people to me that are of a similar mind or have similar points of view, etc., as opposed to people who just don’t get it and never will.

      • I do feel like a lone ranger at times… surrounded by so many insensitive idiots. But it is nice to see that there are others out there that are of the same dying breed.

        Just really wanted to say good morning Lisa, and I hope you have a beautiful day. *hugs* much love.
