Let’s get real this fine hazy afternoon in Malaysia.
I just had lunch and mum switched on the news and for heaven’s sake, the news depresses me to no end. I feel this itch in my soul that just craves for people to be a bit more human. Cos as of now they seem to be more like monsters to me.
Two stories struck arrows in my heart (and not the nice kind) this afternoon.
The first one is the 15 year old boy who was neglected by his mother (read about it here) and did not get food for God knows how long and is down to just skin and bones. How dare she treat a human being like that? Let alone a human that came from her very own womb? Where is the empathy?
And what breaks me even more is that she’s DEFINITELY not the only one around the world that does this. It’s funny because some mothers in slummier areas around the world sometimes have no choice (due to lack of resources) but to NOT feed their children. And here you are, lady, in a HOUSE, with a roof over your head, and clothes on your well fed body and yet you decide you’re not gonna feed your son?
If you didn’t want to take care of a child, then keep your legs crossed and don’t bleeping have one.
And then those teenage girls who beat up their school mate. Punching, kicking, banging her head against the wall. (Read about that here). THE WORST part is that somebody was video taping all of this. AND there was a boy looking over and he did not help.
Let’s talk about those monsters first. Who the heck do you think you are? Beating another human to the ground? Are you not women? Well of course not, and I tell you, y’all will never be. Where is your respect for one another? Ganging up on one girl?
Rude. Y’all just rude and uneducated. No heart within you is it? Where’s your soul?
And the one recording this whole thing? Is this fun for you? The amount of hits you get on your video going to satisfy you? What is the purpose?
Shame on you. Shame on all these girls. Shame on them for even referring themselves as girls. I get that we’re all not princesses, but please tryna be all gangster and junk? You think that’s cool?
Where is all this angst coming from?
I’m not a perfect human being. I know I’m not. None of us are. I sin. I make mistakes. But my mistakes and sins never hurt anybody else but me. In the end, I am the one that has to deal with it.
So don’t. Stop hurting other people just cos it’s more ‘convenient’ for you or if it’s ‘entertaining’ for you. Be careful even with what you say. Stop dragging your schoolmate by the hair (literally) into your own self issues. Kicking her and punching her is not going to get rid of your inner problems. Verbally abusing someone is NOT going to help you forget that you are facing issues. Don’t be so bleeping insecure about yourself that you have to revert to abuse to make yourself feel more of a woman/powerful.
Are you hurting? Is someone hurting you at home? Are you a victim of abuse elsewhere outside of school and that’s why you’re abusing this other teen?
Talk to someone, for heaven’s sake. Please. Tell someone about it. Cos I can’t seem to figure out another reason why people would beat up others for fun. I’m trying to give them the benefit of the doubt here. Maybe they are troubled. (Yes it isn’t a reason to throw a punch but this is where we, the big sisters in the world, tell them that they can talk to us). Cos if they’re not troubled, then they need to see a psychotherapist. Cos that’s just sick.
Please, if you see someone getting hurt, and if you’re too nervous to help, please report them, tell someone, call someone who will help.
Stop it. Stop ANY kind of abuse. Think about our future kids and if this kind of environment is really the kind we want them to grow up in?
Think about your younger siblings/cousins. I fear for Mika everyday.
Okay. Cry for help done.
Practice kindness and gratitude, guys. And talk to one another.
No one to talk to? Trouble at school? Talk to me. I’m here.
