Busting kneecaps for the sake of appearances

It is so easy to forget who we are at times. Whether we find ourselves suddenly influenced by a person or a situation. The questions comes down to what has the greatest significance or importance. Is it the outside catalyst or the inner one that truly causes us to change?

Someone at work wrote a note to a parent and gave it to me to ready. It talked about how angry words spread and soon all everyone has is anger. She pointed out the importance of remembering loving words spread too and are more beneficial. It is sad to see so many angry, hurt children from either their social relationships with their peers or their parents out of a lack of knowledge.

Are we so busy they we forget how it feels to be a child, how it feels when what they think is important is belittled or told it is not "good"? It really frustrates me...I would even say pisses me off but that would be me making that cycle of bad feelings go on. How and when does it stop?

Hello world...jump into my my handbasket, I am on my way to hell!

I think the catalyst is both, the outer forces causes the inner one to cause the change. The reason I think this is because most kids are innocent and the world around them makes them cynical and hard. Their inner self changes to meet the demands of a cruel world to conform and fit in.

Everything could always be better, havenbliss.

That is true.

All you can do is contribute in your own small way and hopefully that will factor in to the big picture.

I've dealt with this myself, and I know that nothing is perfect, no matter how much I wish it would be.

Do what you can, as much as you can, to be a positive influence.

A small gesture can mean so much in a child's big world.
