Who is worth it?

30 May

wolfinsheep

We all know that we live in a materialistic world don’t we?  Everywhere I look there are adverts for newer, brighter more shiny things.  We are encouraged to aspire to accumulate wealth and keep it clutched tightly to ourselves.  We are inundated with a culture of people who wish for instant gratification without the  graft that goes with it.

Why?

Does it make you a better person to have more possessions?  Does fame equip you for life?

I am tired to my very core of our gvt demonising  the poor, sick and disabled.  I am tired of avoiding conversations with people whose sole object in life is to have more possessions or are so preoccupied with their physical appearance that they stop being humane.

Why?

I am no saint, definitely not! neither do I want to be!  What I want to understand    is why are people so much more that way inclined now than they appeared to be in my youth.   Are we so impoverished of spirit now that a new pair of shoes can fix our mood?

I just don’t understand.  I am sad that so much of life is about  *me*  I do not want to be in a world like that.  In all honesty do you?  I don’t want to hear about how fabulous you are I want to be able to talk with you and find out if I think you are.  I don’t care if you think I am weird I like looking on the inside of people not at the veneer.

*sighs*

    Well said Jules, there are too many singing their own praises on here and in life. Let others sing them and if they don’t, take the hint!
