What I Want to Say

or maybe I shouldn’t say…

Here is a list of things I want to say…maybe I shouldn’t say them. Come on! I know there are things you wish you could just say sometimes and don’t for whatever reason….right? I am not the only one….I can’t be…Well anyway, here it goes…

I am so tired of mean people. Why be mean? Does making someone feel bad make you feel better? Does making someone look bad make you think you look better?

Life is hard for all of us. No one has it harder than others. Each person’s hard life is just different. Yes, even that person who appears to have it all, to be living the good life, they have struggles too.

When someone pays you a compliment, please just say thank you.

Please don’t say “no problem” in response to “thank you.” The appropriate thing to say is, “You’re welcome.”

Stop comparing yourself to others especially on social media. It is all smoke and mirrors anyway.

When you need to cry, go ahead and cry. Then keep going.

Stop looking for sympathy. Accept life is what it is and move along.

If you take something out of a drawer, cabinet or refrigerator, put the darn thing back.

I hate when I realize it is my circus. Just cause you got the monkey off your back or out of your head doesn’t mean the circus has left town. Thanks, George!

Just mean what you say and say what you mean. Stop being a silly rabbit and say it already.

We are taught from an early age that it is not polite to say what pops in our head without considering the consequences. That is good advice for conformity. I am not saying to NOT consider other people’s feelings, you should. You should also consider your own self-respect.

Is what I want to say damaging to someone else just for my own self serving reasons? Yes? Then, keep it to yourself.

If on the other hand is it is not harmful, take a moment to work it out in your head and say it.

I am done. Absolutely done. I think my snarky has come back, y’all.
