Human Nature. I guess we all don’t understand that one. So for almost 2 years, I’ve been struggling with certain people in one of my music jobs, as to who is in charge, which is me, and why they are trying to stand in my way of moving forward on my job…or in fact, actually doing my job! Why are people so resistant to change? What’s wrong with change? Maybe since I’m a professional musician, something they haven’t had in their lives in over a decade, maybe, just maybe I will bring a newness and a higher standard to what they are doing! Gosh! Imagine actually liking something better than what you’ve had for so many years! People are funny…I don’t mean comical (although some are). Since when did the world become “all about them personally?” To be belligerent and even back-stabbing and complaining to “anybody who’ll listen” just flummoxes me! I’m so intrigued by it that I’m almost not offended by it. Like it’s some sort of science project. Wow! Look at those belligerent people, not accepting what’s right in front of them. ha!
I always say that if my parents had any inclination at all that my brother and sister and I would grow up to be like this, causing people considerable pain because of what we personally want no matter what, they wouldn’t have let us live! ha! I’ve often read that everything in the Universe is as it should be at every moment in time. We can’t fight the present because it is useless and we will get nowhere, except frustrated. If we want to change something, we have to change ourselves and our thinking in order to change things for the future. Makes sense to me. But so many people are stuck. Can’t get out of their own sandbox. I’m sorry for them. And I’m also intrigued by them as I mentioned previously. If you take yourself out of your life for a minute and step back and observe, life is very amazing and entertaining. It’s interesting being a spectator in your own life, just observing people treating you (or someone else) like crap for stupid reasons, and acting like 9 year-old girls having tantrums (at age 50+). Whoaaa! And what’s the use to argue? What can you hope to change by arguing? Well, your blood pressure for one…higher! ha!
I don’t have a lot more to say about this phenomenon. Just, huh! Wow. I think my next blog will be back to singing. I have some more strange things to write about over there. People again. Stay tuned!
