_______ vs. ________


It must be nice to have all the answers. To be able to sit in your ivory tower and look down your nose on everyone who hasn’t made the same choices as you; to be able to convince yourself you are somehow superior or will produce superior results…..that must feel really good. For you, that is. For those of us ignorant, thoughtless sheep down here in the muck it just pisses us off.
I just don’t understand people who are so insecure with their choices that they have to diminish others to make themselves feel better about what they’re doing. Or is it that they have low self-esteem and are desperate to prove to themselves that they are doing something “right?” Sure, there are things in life that are not perfect and that need change. But that doesn’t mean those things are 100% bad, across the board, nor does it mean that anyone who chooses those things is lazy, uneducated or unable to think for themselves. Believe it or not, sometimes people? They make different choices than you do. And it doesn’t mean they’re stupid. If someone has truly thought over an issue and has made an informed decision about it, then that is all you need to know and you should shut the hell up with the subtle barbs and sly digs about how we, the unwashed masses, are so deluded and wrong. You aren’t better than me, your kids aren’t better than mine. NO ONE is “better” than anyone else. We’re all human beings and we’re all doing the best we can. Just because my best is different from yours doesn’t make me wrong and you right.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
