So, I know what you are thinking...."what in the hell does that mean?" I was reading today, and came across some articles on language, and how the Dothraki language has been developed specifically for the series on HBO, "The Game of Thrones", and the creator of this language is now up to 3300 words. He is trying to reach 5000 before season two begins in April. Anyhow... I came across some quotes, and this was one of them. I love it. "Hash yer vasti haz save, hash anha varraggak yera ma lekhoon zhorre yeroon!", means “If you say that again, I will choke you with your own tongue!”
Exactly how I feel lately, especially while at work.
It seems that recently, I just don't have any patience for people at all. They have no manners, no conscience, no soul. Most are going through this life poaching and pillaging, simply taking from others for their own selfish ambitions. No trust exists anymore. There is no compassion, no empathy. It is as if humanity has flushed itself down the toilet...spiraling out of control, desperately trying to reach for the edge to hang on, and will stomp on, grab and drown anyone or anything that gets in their way.
You think I sound rather pessimistic? A dark, sad way to see things? Come hang out with me at work for two hours. It will really change your mind.
Using others for your own gain is almost acceptable behavior now. Staring blindly at a cell phone or tablet while another human being is trying to communicate with you is a given. Risk crashing your car, alienating your spouse, ignoring your children....so what? This is how life is today. Complain as much as possible to get something for free. Treat others as if they are objects, not people. Say one thing, then do the opposite, what difference does it make? Lie, cheat, steal, beg, borrow, betray.....the list goes on.
If one single person responds with "find Jesus" or "faith is what we need" I swear, I will re-post the title of this blog a hundred times over.
I don't agree, nor do I believe that anyone should do something good because they are in fear of their faith. To me, that simply means they are still false, still lying, still fake. You can't do something good, or try to behave in a decent manner simply because you are afraid of consequences. The RIGHT thing to do is just be good because it is the RIGHT thing to do. Be kind because it is how people SHOULD behave. Be faithful to your spouse because you are SUPPOSED to be faithful. LOVE them because that is why you got married in the first place, (and if it isn't, then I really am despicably annoyed by you). Look people in the eye when you speak to them, or when they speak to you. Say please and thank you, and you will be genuinely surprised by how far that gets you, rather than acting a fool. If you are troubled, talk about it. Don't hold it all in, it's not good for you. If you need help, ASK FOR HELP.
It is astounding to me how people act, when the alternative is so easy. What happened to wanting to be a good person? Wanting to succeed on your own merit and hard work? Being recognized for your work and integrity, not how much ass you kiss?
Rome is falling....and sitting back and playing the violin, while it all burns, are those that struck the match. Maybe it's time everyone pulled together, and gathered a little water.
