The hate is towards myself, so it’s okay.

"don’t get upsetti have some spaghetti"
Instead of having hate towards yourself, why not pasta for yourself.
It’s infuriating seeing these reports of Black Friday shoppers going out and literally swarming into retail stores to fight over cheap TV’s, brawl over consoles, and argue over who gets the last blu-ray player. People have literally died for the sake of cheap retail products; so far there have been 5 deaths and 81 injuries directly connected to the phenomenon. It’s absolutely pathetic that all this happens immediately after a day where we celebrate what we already have. It’s almost as if Thanksgiving instead reminds us of how little we have, when in fact we should be reflecting on our blessings.
I come from a country where we don’t have the pleasure of having copious amounts of food; where even if we did celebrate thanksgiving, many still wouldn’t even be able to put food on the table. Still, the people in my country are more thankful for everything than most people I’ve seen or met here. I remember while living there, being thankful for days when we actually had running water (which was still not fit for drinking). I remember that in order to save money, the government would shut down the electricity in the city for some hours at a time leaving us in the dark as the sun went down. There would even be times when I would worry about whether or not I had enough money to afford food for the next few days.
Even then, I was considered one of the luckier ones in my country. Some of my classmates lived in tiny one bedroom homes with 5 or more people. I knew people that only had 2-3 sets of clothes, and would work hard to maintain their status as a scholar because that was the only way that they could afford higher level education. I remember seeing people smile even after having their homes destroyed and swept away by typhoons and being thankful for the makeshift shacks provided by volunteers; shacks that didn’t have electricity, or proper insulation, shacks made of plant fiber and wood. I have seen people who have lost everything, and it’s horrible to see people climbing over each other this time of year hurting one another after literally stuffing themselves with food for the sake of more material goods.
To make things worse, stores are opening earlier, cutting into thanksgiving. Instead of being at home in the company of their families, appreciating what they have, people are camped out in front of Wal-marts, Best Buys, and even Big Lots, fantasizing about buying more crap that they don’t need. In my eyes, it’s horrible and it makes me sad…
so driving back from the city yesterday, i get a random text from what appears to be a middle school boy that texted the wrong number.
so does this make me a fucked up individual or
I laughed harder than I should’ve
I wish that I could sit inside of a classroom and just learn forever. Imagine just taking in infinite amounts of knowledge. I want the secrets of this world, the keys that open the doors to progress and legend. I want to be able to look at the world and see not just the superficial, but the inner workings and mechanisms of creation. I want to stare into the abyss and see something come forth from within myself and change me for the better. I want to challenge the world and test my limits, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Most of all I want to give myself to God, the one being that I can never hope to understand in thanks for presenting me with the opportunity to live, and comprehend the beauty of everything he’s created.
No matter who, or where we are in this world or in our own lives, we as individuals can never fully comprehend the entirety of the world; much less ourselves. However, we can optimize our potential as people and work towards that. The term “self-actualized” couldn’t be more accurate as a term referring to an individual who has reached the pinnacle of his/her current self understanding and potential.
