I am so mad today....

A lot of what happens in NYC is insane. It is amazing what people will do to protect their little social bubble, ( without knowing the other person in this case ) including subtle digs that are so obvious to the more sensitive soul. Exclusive versus Inclusive Attitude.
It is fine, I always say live and let live, but when I witness this kind of stupidity and narrow-mindedness, it just makes my blood boil.
I always have been about extending a hand, connecting people and creating an environment that is inclusive, no matter if you are a school teacher, cab driver, butcher, artist or the richest, most beautiful person in the world, whatever it might be.
It is about helping, generosity and mutual understanding in my world.
I am happy that I was able to create the way I live on my own terms, never having to care about other peoples opinion. I have been very blessed in that way, coming from nothing and being able to still do what I set out to do, creating a life on my own terms.
And I am not saying I am perfect, all I am saying is that I recognized a long time ago that life is fair in a way, everybody gets dumped, dissed, talked about, fired, looses loved ones and so on and so forth... the list is endless. We are all people with our own problems, so to treat some people that way and someone else another because they are not on the social register or your last name is not "good enough" is disgusting to me.
Fake, Fake, Fake.
No matter what your last name is, good manners are free, they don't cost you a penny.
So you guys go here and I stay where I am, this too shall pass, I can't help you because stupidity doesn't discriminate.

honest, Brava. Manners are priceless and it seems some of the most wealthy possess the least- they could not and would not buy them if they were offered. this is Why the rich-stay rich-that's it- But everyone else has unlimited potential. The only problem with these sorts of people- narrow minded- their children have quite a struggle to break free, alas they breed.

Dear Ulla,
There is nothing worse (or more infuriating) than a cold and unjustified sense of entitlement. As I said in my first post on Reggie Darling, none of us are responsible for or can take credit for where we came from or what cards we were dealt when we came into this world. On the other hand, we ARE accountable for what we do with what we have been given, and what we make of our lives. In the end, we are all self made. If there is to be judgement, that is where it lies.

Thank you Reggie for taking the time to comment.

Wow! Great post, and I completely agree. We all end up in the same place in the end, so don't try and pretend otherwise!
