This is one of those afternoons where I have pondered the statement
"No is an action word, it's a verb"
Our society these days, has taken on a new ideal, reality, wishful thinking, some kind of bull crap that they do not have to honor the word NO. I have found, if they feel they are persuasive enough, cunning enough, bullying enough, wears you down enough, beg your mother enough, email you enough, send you packages - they may think, u will break you down into some kind of submission. Even if you NEVER say YES, they still believe, that they can keep chipping away at trying. At this point they have lost their pride, lost their honor - but as long as they get their drug of choice, whatever that may be - that's all that matters.
When, you tell someone;
"No, I cant make it to lunch today"
"No, I can't eat out in restaurants"
"No, I don't want to be your friend"
"No, I don't want to talk to you"
"No, do not send me emails, I do not want to communicate with you"
"No, I don't want to work with you"
"No, to any contracts with you"
"No, I don't want to *^&*%*&*...... anything w you -
"No, I'll get my own drink" (to make sure its safe...)
"Do, Not call me, do not drive by, leave me alone, do Not engage in any aspect of my life....."
All of these things, statements, have the common word NO or DO NOT.
But in our society, we have bullies, Con-men and Con-women, aggressors, liars, selfish thieves, people who hide in or behind uniforms, or date rapist, all out clawing for their personal gain - you name it. These people will NOT honor, nor respect the word NO or DO NOT. All we have to do is turn on the news. Look at whats going on at "Hopkins" look at whats going on in your own life, have the saboteurs taken your JOY!
Look at the crime stats, and stalking stats, even a stupid TV show, glorifying STALKING, have the producers never been stalked - what the HELL.
All of this Wearing and Chipping our society down, changes our structure of Rules. Go to the higher ups for help, guidance and all they can say, is "Oh we are sorry, but there is nothing we can do" or worse, are they the perpetrators, like a wolf in sheep's clothing.
When did society give up their spine and backbone, give up their conscience, give up their honor and become f-ing pushovers. I am one who will stick to my guns and beliefs and if my heart says its wrong, there is no one on the planet who can change my mind. Yes I have made plenty of mistakes along the way, but I have believed is, you GOTTA OWN it. Can you look in the mirror ? R U intentionally taking what is not yours to take ?
At the ripe old age of 52, I still try to have faith in mankind, but its hard. It does make me feel sad, when I see my children, they are not as mentally affected by the wrongs they see, feel & witness, they say, "Mom, its different now" people are selfish they don't care.
I choose to live under a rock, to stay away, remove myself from this kind of human virus, its like a computer worm, in the brains of the Narcissist. I think they are contagious ! and the world is afraid of Ebola....
Girls, stick to your GUNS, as Nanny would say. "No, means NO, its a VERB" and keep ur friends, Smith and Wess on your side.
