Questions Of A Hopelessly Delusional Person8:00 AM
I love mankind ... it's people I can't stand!!
- Charles M. Schulz
If caring too much about the world is a disorder and hoping that it would get better soon is a delusion, then I must be a hopelessly delusional person.
Can you help me and answer these questions running through my head constantly?
Is it too much to ask for a gossip-free world? Where people don't talk about other people like their experts about their lives and just celebrate one another instead? Where we can talk about ideas in making our lives better and making the world a better place to live in?
Can we not stop trolling around and keep our filthy mouths shut if we've got nothing nice to say? Can we not be kinder since we've all been through the bad times and know how hard it is to deal with?
Can we stop projecting our frustrations and insecurities towards others by criticizing them, and face our own monsters and conquer our own mountains instead?
Can we not be smarter and choose our battle? Walk out and walk away from people and fights that are not worth our time and effort?
Can we not meddle in or better yet start unnecessary and irrelevant dramas?
Should we not use the limited and precious 24 hours given to us in a day wisely? (Read: 10 Little Things You Can Do To Make The World A Better Place )
Is it not better, holier, wiser, and more self-fulfilling to focus and grown on our own faith instead of criticizing and looking for other people's shortcomings and loopholes in what they believe in?
Will it really make us look more right or righteous if we point out their faults? Aren't we pointing on our own insecurities and flaws when we do that?
Will it make us feel more superior if we rub their wrongs on their faces? How does highlighting and reveling on another person's weakness and mistakes make you better?
Will it put us on a pedestal if we keep on stepping on other people's toes? Condescending does not make you a better person. It only makes you look pathetic.
If instead of judging and looking down on someone, we accept their flaws and correct them lovingly, wouldn't we be making the world a big favor?
How does making another person's life miserable make yours better?
How sick are we?
These questions have been bugging me since I started going out in the "real" world. Am I just too idealistic or simply delusional to think that we can still change? That there is hope for mankind? That we can still make the world a better place for everyone? My heart goes out to the world.
If you're a genius, answer me these questions.
I'm desperate to know.
