I Am So FrustratedSubmitted by skippy d on Sun, 01/20/2013 - 01:10
I feel so alone out here in lala land where my neighbors, friends and relatives insist on living.
You know, the land where everyone has their heads in the sand and don't know or want to know about what is REALLY happening around them. They constantly complain about how bad things are but if I try to tell them WHY things are like that they get a glazed look on their faces and go blank. I send articles to people or links to eye opening videos but NOBODY will read or watch them. I MEAN NOBODY! What's with that?
You would think that out of all the people I know I could get at least ONE to pay attention. Is it something I am doing wrong? My better half gets it and I get it but nobody else we know gets it. When I ask these people why they won't at least read the articles or watch the videos they say they don't want to know or they say they don't have time. (Yet some will have time to call me up on the weekend and want to talk about nothing for an hour at a time)
Anyway, I keep trying to wake people up to no avail. It's not like I jump in with overwhelming stuff. I never start the conversations on these things. I wait until people are bitching about having to work 3 jobs to pay their bills or why their kids are being put on meds or why they have so many issues at school etc and try to slowly introduce them to the truth. They STILL won't listen. GEEZ. Is it me?
Excuse me for venting but like I said, I am frustrated at the apathy of people these days.
