Expanding Our Horizons
Please to allow me to remind you that comments supply an abundance of extra useful information to the writer that can improve their outlook, expand their communication skills, provide new friends, exchange ideas, and ultimately helps to improve the quality as well as the quantity that Bloggers can come to enjoy. And that improves the content that you read! Too many times I have seen blogs, good ones, fall by the wayside because none of their efforts are appreciated or even acknowledged. I’m going to show you examples today, of how light can be brought into dark lives this way!
Many of us are left poor, with very few alternatives but to sit around all day watching commercials on TV all day about people going on cruise trips, buying expensive cars and a very many luxury items, like simple skin care products that those without means simply cannot afford! It is rubbed into our faces on a daily bases. So if you believe being poor in a rich country is a walk in the park, sometimes we actually have to live and sleep there! Being poor in a rich country is one of the worst kinds of poor you can encounter, because you stick out like a soar thumb! Others think of you as uneducated, greasy, germ carrying, criminal ingrates, to be avoided and ignored at all costs! You are quite literally shunned from the rest of society! You are stripped of all dignity and self esteem. And forget about a career because you simply can’t afford one. Even a simple Photography course costs $8,000! Where am I gonna get $8,000? They’re not gonna let you in because you say you like Photography and read books ya know. You have to earn it!
Instead of brick walls, we can set up plans in which the doors can be opened to all those willing to succeed at what they love to do, just like everybody else with the finance to do it! This example can be viewed world wide making the eradication of poverty a very real possibility! Hey! You’re the ones who don’t want the low I.Q.’s, disease and serial killings, suicide, prostitution, drug and alcohol abuse, pacts with the Devil etc… This last paragraph comes from a comment I made BTW! Armed with a larger, better workforce that actually collaborates with one another, we could actually go on to solve all the worlds problems, which crooked politicians have no intention of ever doing! Once more we could take pride in our work instead of just filling in time to get a pay cheque… Below is a comment from a single mother struggling to survive. From her words, you will find that deep down, she’s very much like you:
I give you Mingtea
‘God has done wondrous things in my life and for those around me whom i love too. All things are through him only and without him there is nothing. I admire you Darrell for your mercy and forgiveness, you never torment or intimidate anyone and your always welcoming to a friend weather they feel happy or feel down, even when you may not feel well yourself. I see that shining through you a lot. you are a blessing to my life and to those who know you. i pray for you and about you in every pray i say. may Gods blessings shine down upon you and touch your life in a wonderful and deserving way.’
Notice how she speaks of God given qualities because God is the refuge for the poor, and His promise to us, our only hope! She may speak very well of me, is kind and loving, yes. Yet there are days when she is so down and distressed, and there are lots of them, most especially around the second half of the month when funds have run out! I have cried out to God and prayed for her many times, that God will hear my prayers and remove her constant suffering and bring some ray of light into her life; something with deep meaning and constancy! Something that would open up some kind of financial security for her, that she may be needed and have some kind of purpose in life! And here is a post from Mingtea when she feels down:
‘my life is over now as far as men are concerned im old poor disabled nobdy will ever want to be with me now. i am no longer pretty im just a worn out wash rag and am treated as such. theres no man for me ever again in my future there just isnt a good man left certainly not in this shithole town. most men here lost their license dont work are alcoholics or drug abusers or they cling to their mamma like a week old baby . makes me sick i was married 3 times and still had to do all the money earning doctors appointment s laundry cooking school visits clean th e house pay the bills put the garbage out shovell the snow mow the lawn. one of these assholes even still complains that he had to pay support even tho his kids are 25 and 27 and he hasnt helped them get a license and hasnt givien them 5 cents to help them out when they are broke they come to mamma. one way its good that no man on earth will ever be with me i dont havae to shave my legs or arms pits. dam i dont even have to take a shower whats the point i only have dirty laundry anyway no money for weeks now for the laundrymat. theres no hope left for me im no longer pretty and no longer work. im done like melted icecream stuck to the bowl after thanksgiving dinner. im equal to the shit left in the sink of dirty dishes. even my kids treat me like shit since i dont work and give them stuff anymore. i was a good person and great mom my whole life for nothing.they only care about right now and give me no credit for my years of sacrifice anda labor i did for them. if they have nothing today they blame me. there is no such thing as free will . God doesnt exist its all a bullshit story like santa clause. i was a loyal wife and devoted mother for nothing. nobody cares about my happiness but plenty of ppl enjoy making me suffer especially your old buddy the madman. hes a women abuser and picks on the weak and defencesless. i dont want to be around you becuase you always say your done with him then your old lady lets him in anyway for whats in his pockets and YOU prolly make him coffee. thats called 2 faced. if he shows his ugly face at my door im slamming it on him no matter what is in his pockets.he cant buy my kidness now hes done too much damage to my family and continues to. i hope he moves away and takes your old lady with him. sorry if that sounds harsh its just reality she will let the devil in if he gives her something, no matter what you say.’
A lot of this is pent up anger and disrepair; nobody to comfort her, nowhere to go, and nothing to look at but four walls! BTW, true to my word, I gave The Madman no coffee, and told him to get out and not come back! He doesn’t even care or know what he’s done to her or his one time friends! How would you like to be living like this? Is this what fair play boils down to? What kind of answer has ever been given to any of us, except for you to turn your backs and pretend we don’t exist? And the way things are going, you may just get your wish! I’d like to believe someone out there truly cares and isn’t just putting on their little act to satisfy their conscience. Would you ask a drowning seal to smile for a picture? One thing I do know. You treat them better than us! Hear’s another cheer filled comment from her on your behalf. Why so? Because this is how you make us feel when you don’t comment! And ya know what else? Just keep going the way you have been (you silent majority you!), and there won’t be any blog for you to post on at all… Have yourselves another wonderful day in paradise… Are you trying to covey the impression we’re all brothers and sisters? any more BS you have for me? Read, and learn what it is to be human! You see? Without comments, you’re just a bag of dust…
‘i was having an horrific menopausal meltdown today. it is so frustrating to to be disabled at times i loose all faith and hope i become so overwhelmed with sadness and defeat that i feel heavy from it weighing on me. i wish there was some comfort encouragement or consoling so i could feel better. menopause and chronic illness aren’t for me i need restored hope. i am defeated’
