I disrespect my family.

Filed under: General — Xero @ 7:32 pm

I respect people for who they are not what they own. That’s how I was taught.

Others might disagree. I don’t care. Logic always prevails in the end. I don’t really care what some over generalizing book about the baby boomer generation says. It’s all irrelevant to me, I am not like the general populous, no matter how much you try to rationalize my actions as so.

So you have money, I don’t care. You spend your money on me? Fine. You want respect? You’re not getting it from payments. It doesn’t work that way. If you don’t agree with me then you can deal with it whatever way you choose but if it’s not one of mutual respect you’ll be damned if I give a shit about it.

I’m not lost from the real world. I understand what it’s like and I know why I don’t like the way things are. I don’t need to hear some opinion which isn’t even your own about how the current generation of kids is going down hill, I already know that, and I know why and how I’m not one of those kids. And I know how to deal with those people when I am confronted by them.

People insist on putting me down. People insist on me to obey by their rules. People insist they’re more right then I am, always turning things into a game of right and wrong. This is supposedly respect, and or deserving of it. And again it’s always revolving around money and power.

I’m sorry but gene line won’t make me respect you, money won’t make me respect you, and most certainly trying to force me to be like you is not going to make me respect you. Why don’t people be happy with the little respect I do give them instead of slowly grinding it away in the name of traditions, morals, manners, and other such beliefs?

I think it’s because most people just don’t know how to live without following. You can’t become truly rich, not in money but in spirit by sucking up to or trying to be like those who are rich monetarily. Nor can you accomplish this by following any belief system. It is something you yourself must do. It is a self-prestige which you can only gain from yourself, and by no one else.

These people who I’m supposed to respect, they hoard physical possessions in order to make themselves feel rich. That does not make you rich in any form that I know of. Even a poor person can do that. What’s with people and trying to feel high and mighty? What’s with people who care about useless things?

What’s with this world full of those who illogically imply over-importance to things which are greatly lacking any importance at all? Why is it that people create problems with other people all in order to uphold an illogical outdated belief structure?

I know I’m not perfect, surely this is impossible. However I know that when I feel I am right that little stops me. My instincts rarely let me down. If you cannot provide a valid reason as to why my actions are unacceptable then you will not make any impression on me. And no ideas proposed by any belief system will be accepted, sorry.

I’m tired of people saying my parents raised me badly or other such things. They are ignorant of many things. Most parents force a path on their child, a path that they feel is right. My parents, or more specifically my father did not force any predefined path on me. Instead he let me form my own. This is one thing I will always greatly respect him for. Respecting me no matter what path I chose. I wish more people were like that.

And while nothing works out perfectly. as I did in fact run into many problems as a child. I do think the message in the end was clear. I am me. Not you, and not who you want me to be. Me. Accept it or reject it. I don’t have to like you either.

If there’s one thing I learned from my father it’s that money isn’t important in the end. Do not try to tell me otherwise, you selfish being.
