Social media has opened the doors of opportunity. It can provide an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. It has provided a place for people like me to write and save thousands of dollars on therapy. It does not discriminate…even if you can’t write well…it will still welcome you….we will just laugh at you. Social media has increased awareness of awesome goodness around the world. It has also provided a strong vehicle to raise awareness for causes near and dear to our heart. It has also served as a reminder that our society is comfortable flaunting irresponsible actions and lack of good judgment. They are ok expressing their feelings of being entitled to something without putting in some time to grow/deal with it.
I am fully aware that I am not required to read everything my “friends” put out there. However, I chose to for two main reasons. One is for entertainment value. Two is so I can save more money on therapy as I reassure myself I am not as messed up as others. (I know you have those thoughts too…its ok I won’t ask you to stand up or raise your hand).
Recently the Mommy Ref Court has been dealing with some tough situations. I have not written about them yet as honestly it still hurts and we are still smack dab in the middle. Nothing life threatening…just a lot at once going on with the kids and of course that dreaded “M” word. Money. We don’t advertise our issues in media land because they are ours. We will deal with them. However not everyone feels that way…..that is where my head wants to explode….nearly once a day.
I will explode if I have to witness another woe is me money post followed up a short time later with pictures of your Vegas trip, weekend getaway, or your status about new Disney season passes.
I will explode if I hear one more person complain about your child being sick because you had a date night planned. You are a parent, it is your job. Date nights can be rescheduled. So can vacations for that matter….does it suck, yes….but such is life with children. Expect the unexpected...it’s in the fine print.
I will explode if I have to read another degrading post about one of your children as you praise your “perfect one” for all to see. Then you post later about how that child always gets left out or picked on….I have a mirror for you Momma Dear.
I will explode if I have to read about your money drama because you quit a job because it was too hard to get there at 7am. You are not married, you don’t have children to tend to, you are lazy. Grow up.
Life is tough…period. We all have “stuff” some worse than others indeed. What these things show me day in and day out is that many people are clueless. They are selfish. They are lost. When did we turn into a world that feels entitled to things? When did the work hard to enjoy life plan leave society?
If you are having money issues, quit spending on stuff that is not essential!
If your child is sick, take care of them…Everything else can wait…trust me
If you are struggling with one child, deal with it and stop comparing them to the other child. Trust me it is not helping anything. If you typing it, chances are you are modeling it too.
If you can’t get to work by 7am, you are lazy. Period. If it is due to a child care issue…..you are now stupid for quitting without a job in place. With a little research and asking people are willing to help. Now you have made it worse.
We teach our children to be responsible for their actions. We should be too.The right thing to do and the hard thing to do are usually the same. So suck it up buttercup and take care of your business the right way.
