Today, I have a Life Gripe...

People who always seem to want to find trouble, cause trouble or be in the middle of some sort of trouble - So what gives? What’s the deal? What is the problem? Is it that they’re bored, lonely or jealousy perhaps. From my personal experiences it’s always come from the latter. Jealousy. It just amazes me how some human beings can do such silly minded, yet malicious things just because they want to. I just don’t understand why people have to cause trouble, especially when there is no harm being done, only good. I try, hard as it may, to drown out the negativity and hurtful things that other people do and say, especially when personally involves me. I try to keep my thoughts in a good place and a smile on my face, so as to not follow down the same path of those who are jealous and malicious towards others or myself. And although it's taken some time, and I'm still learning, I have come to realize I can't control the actions nor integrity of others. I must admit, I can never fully accept or understand those types of people. Obviously they have deeper issues they need to deal with.  I feel sorry for them because they have to live with themselves and that in itself makes for a tortured soul.  My only wish is for them to get help and find peace for and within themselves

My quote for today’s gripe is:

“The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves.” ~William Penn, Some Fruits of Solitude, 1693
