I'm thinking to myself and wondering, as I sometimes do, what your thoughts and opinions/insight/perspective/ideas are on various subjects and issues.

 

and I'm thinking to myself what shallow world it all is.

and how this effects peoples' mental health.

the shallowness of it all.

yet humans can be deep and complex beings

hell, we don't understand ourselves half the time! much less others it seems.

perhaps we all need something to get stuck into.  projects, creativity and such like.

it's been a depressing state of affairs in the media of recent hasn't it.

I am aware of being bombed on the tube or bus on my way into work in the morning or on the way back in the evening.

but manage to wander in my mind thinking about other stuff,

this money world Bob....  where it seems it's only the very rich pulling the strings.

whilst the rest of us put up and shut up. its made me think of something I posted on some forum somewhere. i'll go find it and post it on this thread. cheers.

so here it is:

Be grateful for what you have.

How many times have you heard that eh?

Eat ya greens young man/lady, there are children in Africa starving who would give their left arm to eat that.

we are pretty much drilled from an early age, quite a few of us anyway, to be grateful for what we have since there are others hugely worse off than us.

Sure i get this. i mean for most of us, when we are down, we can fortunately say to ourselves 'at least i got a roof over my head, at least there is food on my table, at least i got my health, or i got a few friends that love me, etc. etc.' and it helps you to appreciate what you have rather than be forever seeking something more, and never being fully satisfied. ya know, that greed thing i guess.

so yeh i get it. appreciating what you have, and being mindful of it in a sense.

sure, i get it.

however....... how far should this go? this principle, what is a mantra to some, this value, this policy?

i mean when they introduced the full payment of student fees here in the UK, 'ah well at least there is food on the table, roof over their heads etc.',

when they increased retirement age progressively til now it stands at 67 for myself and there is talking about increasing it further. the Mirror has reported on speculations of it going as far as mid 70s! yeh but we're not in famine Africa. at least we don't have to resort to cannibalism.

as they sell of the NHS, one of the really great things in our country. 'ah well, at least I'm not in war torn Syria, at least i don't have to fight a war etc etc., at least i don't have to risk my life and limb getting a small dingy over to turkey with my partner and small children, at least my kids are alive and healthy'

it goes on. 20% of the world's population own 80% of the world's wealth. isn't it something like that????????????

but lets not rock the boat. we're still lucky in the UK.

so do we never rock the boat?

at what point does joe public say 'enough is enough'???

I'm fed up NOW. and I'm ready to do something towards a movement to a fairer society for all.

wake up Britain.
