I celebrated Pride. A nice sunny warm day, a lot of fun and happy people. Yes, a good time, a good day! It is a happy occasion. Full of acceptance, love, and joy. Bringing many people together for a common cause. Pride. Pride in who you are. Pride in self.
But one thing still remains a mystery to me: Where in some peoples own self worth does the pride in oneself become nothing. They are building their foundation that is made up of lies, deceit and hateful behaviors. Where did the be true to oneself,and owning up to your own actions and doings become not important. Does lying and making up stories to make oneself feel and look better to others over time and multiple tellings, slowly become real in their mind? Or does simply hatred at being called on your doings and unwillingness to accept your own faults cause the loss of your own self pride?
I am having a very difficult time understanding this. People will sometimes do things they regret, may realize they are not acting stellar. Mistakes, who doesn’t do them. As for me, I am a big girl, I can handle whatever lies, deceit and false truths are thrown at me. But when you involve innocent children and cause needless pain and suffering to satisfy your hatred, that is where I lose any and all respect I might have had for you.
As much respect that I don’t have for you, I don’t wish anyone harm. In fact, I wish you well. I just wish harder that you might have enough pride in yourself to be a better person to the innocent involved, the children, and think of them first.
