Tuesdays are for ranting...


People are so funny.

I have always been intrigued by psychology. Trying to figure out why people do and say the things they do. 'Why would that person say that to me?', 'Don't they realize how strange that is...?' 'What were they thinking?', 'What's their motivation?', 'Don't they know that's weird???'... These are just some of the questions I ask myself everyday.

I have an insatiable desire TO KNOW. I simply must figure people out. If I can understand, even just a little, about what their motivations are... then I can usually accept it, and move on.
For instance: The reason that person ALWAYS says something rude to me is because they are attempting to be funny and familiar with me, but are just too awkward to pull it off. I can't take it personally. I have to just accept that's how they are and move on.


...But when I just can't figure someone out. When they constantly throw me for a loop. I can't let go. Like I said, I MUST get to the bottom of it! I want to peel back the layers, and get to the root of what's really going on in that head of theirs. ....And trust me, I know I AM weird for this. I just can't help it. People are just SO intriguing to me.

So, this is my version of a Public Service Announcement. I am just putting this out there...

THINK before you speak.
TRY to be kind.
ONE word... INTROSPECTION.
INSECURITY is no excuse for being rude and aggressive.
(in fact, that just makes it more apparent that you're compensating.)
INSERT a filter between your brain and your lips.


Thank you for allowing me to rant.
...OK. I'm off the soapbox.
