mind your mouth

i really cannot sit idly by anymore and take the constant verbal abuse of society running their mouths around.  everyone feels entitled to loudly boast their opinions nowadays about absolutely everything and it's to the point where i don't want to have a conversation with anyone for fear of being verbally accosted.

you are 100% entitled to your own opinion, beliefs, choices, lifestyle, etc. but for the love of goodness sake, stop trying to convert everyone to your side when it comes to every single issue.  it's maddening.

we're at the point now where people are fed up and their patience is running low as a result of the pandemic and the upcoming election.  all of that negative energy is really toxic and i want to hibernate until everything blows over.

guess what?  you can vote for whoever you want!  just stop making every conversation about converting everyone around you to your beliefs.  (for those who are guilty of this, i have news for you . . .  if you are this type of person, the majority of the time the people around you don't want to hear about it because they don't agree with you.)

do not tell me what i should believe, what is right/wrong, what is fact/fiction, who to vote for, how to live my life .

can you think what you want?  absolutely, but keep it to yourself.

i certainly have my own opinions about everything, as i am entitled to, but i do not go around running my mouth and trying to convert everyone to my side.  i make comments inside my own home to my husband but not directly to people's faces (although i would certainly like to most times).

there are several people who i am now embarrassed to be in public with because they are so loud and obnoxious.

ryan and i recently had a conversation with a close family friend.  all three of us agreed that we will never put a political sign on our lawn for fear of having our property vandalized.  how incredibly sad is that?  when people press us about voting for a political candidate, we lie and agree with them in order to shut them up in order to end the conversation sooner.

people, keep your politics and religion private.  if the most exercise you get is running your mouth, jumping to conclusions, and pushing your luck, then you need to reevaluate your life.

if only closed minds came with closed mouths.

love, laurie
