This myTake may or may not sound a little antagonistic. But I am just writing this because I am so frustrated at the spoiled nature of today's society. My objective is to perhaps get people's point of view on this subject and maybe challenge me on my ideals. Though I might be feiry, I do like to learn new angles on subjects.
Before I commence, I would like to share that I am an only child. I grew up in a family that was not well off. I did not go to a good, reputable school coming here and hence, I couldn't afford the luxury of obtaining tutoring. But it was ok, I studied hard and got into a good university and did a degree in Social Science majoring in Psyhology. I also worked hard throughout my university years to support my family as my dad was a low income earner and my mother had 2 chronic diseases which rendered her unable to work.
I finished university and I could not get into a job in my field. No one would give me a chance and understandably, wanted someone with experience. I did not have time to wait for that "perfect job". I had to work and support my family immediately. So I got into my first job as a case manager and just a few months ago, I quit to start a new job in medical admin. Unfortunately that job was retrenched and I received the bad news 3 days ago. So now I am unemployed and you might understand that I am a little angry right now. To make matters worse, anytime some moron asks me about my birth order and I tell them that I am an only child, they immediately think I am spoiled. EXCUSE ME!
Spoiled brats No1: Drug addicts
Now, here is the source of my anger.
I was watching a news story on 60 minutes about ice addicts. I was watching their disgusting behaviour under the influence and trying to find a good reason as to why they tried ice in the first place.
Now to anyone that know me on here, you would know that I abhor drug addicts. I abhor anyone who use a crutch to get through life. I do not understand weakness.
I was watching the news story with a sneer on my face with utter disgust at how anyone can be so goddamn selfish. Their families had to scrape every red cent that they had, put their houses up on a second mortgage and waste their superannuation on their ice addicted children for rehab. Because it isn't enough that their families had to put up with their lying and stealing in the first place. I was listening to their stories and they had loving families, a great job, nice cars, partners, the works. Boo hoo that you went through a traumatic event in your earlier life. Really, I feel for you. But have the strength to move on. Look at the Christian Iraqi's escaping prosecution, and look at their lives. By the way, one thing that really made me laugh was when a mother told her ice addicted daughter how strong she was. Oh Lord.
Spoiled brats No2: Partners who abuse their partners
I would kill to be in a relationship, and they just walk all over their partners? I don't think I need to say more on this subject.
Spoled brats No3: People who cheat
Again, need I say more?
Spoiled brats No4: People who don't appreciate what they have and complain about their lives
Seriously? If you lived my life, you would say that I have the scraps of everything. But I make it work and I live my life with pride and try so hard to be better. I don't get up out of bed and complain why I have to work.
Yes, we are raising a society full of...
Pu$$ies who don't know how to deal with stress without a crutch, or taking it out on others.
So before you label a poor, only chlid with this derogatory term, look at who the real spoiled brats are. Unless of course, that only child does that shit too.
God, writing this made me mad.
