I’m burnt out, depressed, sick of an existence where every day it’s “Stand up, only to get knocked down again”.
Where every day it’s a struggle to not simply give up. Where I literally have nothing positive to look forward to daily. I’m tired of being in a dead-end job that I have reached the ceiling of title, responsibility, pay, and necessary skills and I’m stuck because it does have it’s benefits, I have achieved the trust in my skills of my coworkers and it beats unemployment.
However, This blog isn’t about my petty, woe is me, whining.
My point is, I’m not an asshole. Or at least I’m a nice asshole until forced to be otherwise.
I’ll stand and face life with both middle fingers raised high, support anyone who needs it, and do my damnedest to try and always build up my environment, even as I personally am knocked down, yet again.
As such, I can’t sit idly by and watch things that truly piss me off.
I’m truly tired of how this society and industry has turned many of us into cynical, cranky, self-righteous assholes. Or trolls.
Or, even worse YouTube Commenters!
I’m sick of being in a Society, in an Industry and in Communities where the instant anyone brings up a question or discussion about any specific technology, be it Apple, Microsoft, Linux, whatever, they’re torn apart by the pseudo-religious trolls of “the opposition”.
Mindless fanatical, goose stepping sheep who treat their technology of choice like it was some sort of deity and anyone who disagrees with them needs to be chased out of town by flaming torch wielding villagers. Who feels their own personal views of “what’s right” is the ONLY way that’s right.
Where anyone new, who is just trying to learn and join an industry that they have not yet been embittered and burnt-out by, will get eaten alive like tossing a baby seal into a shark tank. Simply because they might not know everything, or get some details wrong in some subject.
I’m sick of living in a Society where anyone who has a different Gender, Race, Nationality, Belief System, Political View, Sexual Preference, Desire to be treated equal with the same benefits as “normal society, Hair Color, Body Piercings, Taste in Music, ANYTHING has to live with the concern of being condemned by anyone who so vehemently disagrees with their choices that they feel it’s their responsibility to try and change them to their own way of life.
GET THE FUCK OVER YOURSELF!
Judge not, lest ye be Judged.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Live and Let Live.
Stop being a fucking Hypocrite.
First, Do No Harm
I’ve got news for you self-righteous assholes out there. YOU are what’s wrong with this world.
Not those people you feel you have to convert to your tiny, pathetic little way of thinking.
Do you seriously want to live in a world of drones. Where we all believe the same, look the same, act the same, use all the same technology, have all the same political beliefs? A world devoid of the marvels of differences. A drab, grey world of clones where no one and nothing is different than anything else.
I truly feel sorry for you then.
We are ALL on this rock together.
Believe in God? Fantastic.
I have news for you. Your God created those people you so despise also. Get off your pedestal and let him deal with them as he sees fit when/if the time ever comes for judgment. Don’t be a dick.
Right-Wing? Left-Wing? Awesome.
Be involved in making ‘your side’ better for the benefit of all. Stop being a narrow-minded asshole.
Left Wing, Right Wing, Same Damned Bird!
Instead of tearing others down in order to make yourself feel better because your life sucks and you’re tired, how about extending a hand in friendship, acceptance, and the shared desire to make life on this spinning ball of dirt a better place for everyone.
All I can say is…AMEN!! And brilliant writing. I am sharing this on Facebook because I feel it pertains to a lot more than just the technological fields. So well said!!
