The Way of things

Where as i am new to blogging i must say there are things that are similar to the real life dealings of friends. Often we get so engrossed in situations that sometimes we fail to see the bigger picture. Yes words can and do hurt of that there is little doubt however even when we are hurt it is our responsibility as sentient beings to move beyond and find the reason why the words are spoken. it is not our place to judge for we are no better or worse than the next guy,girl or ts/tv/cd in this regard.

Once we find the motivation behind the words then we can understand and address the cause not an easy road but its a start. Because of a situation that has started in the blogs i have been reading i have seen people whom after reading their blogs i consider to be very wise individuals however the situation has caused them to act with a herd like mentality which by the way if you notice humans are very much like that individually we are intelligent but when taken as a group we are probably dumber than a stump because in groups we act more like a heard and react to stimuli in a similar manner as say a close freind who is offended we will take up arms to defend them sometimes not even to stop and think if they are right or wrong.

Now to the crux of my rant people throw the words retarded and mentally challenged and the like around like they were candy and the reason i know this is i have two friends who are teachers
at seperate schools hundreds of miles a part and they both are special needs teachers and they both have noticed that educators are classifying more and more children as special needs without trying to first help them which takes away precious time for those children who really are special needs..... but thats not point i am try to make....

My point is that the special needs, mentally challenged, or as some call them retarded people are usually the ones who love without reservation, who dont sweat the small things, they are the better people that most of us wish we could be because in truth its the rest of us out here who are freaking retarded myself included. We normal people are in many cases incapable of loving unconditionally or forgiving and forgetting save when forgetting serves our purposes.

I think we should all remember this one simple thing from the bible:

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone

of course in proverbs there is another passage :

like a dog to his vomit so to a fool returns to his folly

I hope the wise people come back we are poorer for their absence

There are no "wise" people here....a lot of people who THINK they are wise,......if they REALLY just wanted to blog....they would not even allow comments..... you dont KNOW the people behind the 'wise" blogs you speak of. I know a few who are much more fuced up then the others you speak of...they are comment whores so to speak..... just write what YOU like and have fun. Most of these so called HOT people dont show their faces in their pics.....ever wonder why? Hmmm......... anyway....have fun.....write...and dont think that anyone you are talking to on here is who they say they are......99 per cent arent. SOME.............know how to manipulate people for what they want....COMMENTS..... if they had half a brain or a life they would not even have thousands of views...they might be married...... like you are.

This is the first blog I've ever read. Very interesting and heartfelt commentary on the status of the herd. I did just about fall off my chair when I read the proverb about the dog and the vomit. Isn't that one a hoot. What location in proverbs if you don't mind...
Too many people think they are fooling others when they take action. As miamore said on the web you can be what you want to be. You can be younger, lose 10lbs or more etc... I would like to think everybody is honest enough to say what they mean on these sited but they don't.

Enough of my rant.. Great day stay out of the wind.
