S is for...Sorry, Not Sorry
So, I’ve just made the mistake of watching the fucking news. What a tit!
But fear not, I’m not like some of the S is for...Sheep out there. I don’t get sucked into it all very easily these days. Trouble is, an attitude like that makes me lack quite a lot of empathy towards what is going on sometimes. But you do need to get sucked into the news a little bit, because at least some of it is a reflection of reality and what is actually going on in the world. And it doesn’t need me to tell you, but there’s some pretty serious shit still going down. It’s just a ball ache watching the news trying to pick out the important and genuine bits. Urgh.
So, anyway, I allowed myself to get sucked in and I quickly sucked myself out of the propaganda and tried to just take from it something worthwhile from watching the news.
Important conversations are taking place. Culture, society, organisations, and key individuals are being forced to address the difficult but vital parts of head space and psychology that we all need to address in order to survive; as individuals and as a species. So that is a good thing. It‘s just a shame that it takes this fucked up shit to happen in order for people to ‘do the right thing’.
The one thing that I have picked up on is the notion of people being ‘sorry’. You know the fake twatty sorry that you try and blag your Mum with when you take a piece of cake without asking.
”I’m sooowwwwwyyy mummy. I wont do it again.”
You will do it again, you lying little piece of shit. You will do it again because...
YOU JUST DON’T GIVE A FUCK!
So, that’s what I’m seeing. A lot synthetic and diplomatic apologies. People going through the motions whilst they learn to give a toss about what is going on. Or at least pretend to. The sad bit, is...
...I think it’s more of a reflection of what people think about themselves. But that’s just because I like to try and find a positive. I know a lot of it is down to the fact lots of people are just fucking stupid. But part of me can’t help think that some of these people that are going out and ignoring the guidance to stay at home, they just don’t care, or at least appear not to care, because they actually don’t care about themselves.
So, if you are one of those people, or know someone that is being a nob and going out unnecessarily, my advise is...
Personally mate, I couldn’t give a shit if you don’t care about me. You do what you want. But for fucks sake, just care about yourself. In this instance, if you learn how to do that, then you will indirectly start caring about me and that’s cool. But if you don’t want to do that, then yes, the officially terminology that a large percentage of us would echo, be it to ourselves, in our living rooms, or to the world through social media is that you mate...are being a selfish prick.
Oh yeah, and I’ll just finish by saying. If any of that has upset you. Then, all I can simply say is...
Oh yeah, I haven’t got a clue when the picture I’ve used in this post was taken by the way! But you know, fuck it! That’s how you make news work isn’t it?
