play so hard
Im tired of having people shove their opinions in my face. What you do, your business, I really try not to be judgmental, because God didnt give me that power today, or any other day, as far as that goes.
You want to wear a mask, wear one! You dont want to wear a mask, dont wear one! Either way, its your choice! I would appreciate if you give me that same courtesy. Heres what I know, America was an unhealthy country way before the Coronavirus Pandemic. Americans were vulnerable before COVID-19 crossed over our borders, particularly people with cardiovascular disease, as well as diabetes. In fact, being a country, that is SO unhealthy, is whats keeping us in Phase 2 lockdown, its not really Corona. Yes, I get that people have died, yes its a real thing, yes it devastating that elderly patients, in nursing homes, were hardest hit, I do have an extreme level of empathy, honestly, you have no clue just how much empathy I have in the run of any single day. But heres where Im going to piss people off, you say YOU want to wear a mask to protect others, I get it, I appreciate it and I admire your fight, but let me ask a few questions about how much you really care about others, because obviously, you live life to protect others, you put others before yourself every single day, all day long, but do you really? How many of you were concerned about protecting others as you were speeding to work today, not a care in the world, as long as that face mask was hanging on the rear view mirror. Did you text your spouse, or your kids, during your drive, call a co-worker to gossip about how much you hate your job. Texting and driving, kills people, daily. How many of you had a smoke during your day today, alongside your face mask? How many FINALLY went out to eat, to an actual restaurant, of course ordered a “much deserved” drink, heck, we are surviving this Corona, with your mask by your wine glass, then decided to drive home, maybe not drunk, but you wore your mask!How many verbally, or physically, abused someone in your house last night, I mean tension is running high, right? How many are so stressed, that you have used marijuana or vaped to calm yourself down, in-between struggling with that face mask? How about using your prescription drugs, I mean, the Corona has raised a lot of moments none of us were prepared for! But you got that mask on, right? Lets see, how many parents want the kids all masked up for school, but refuse to have them vaccinated? You will let them hang out, all summer, all over the neighborhood, no mask, but take them out, in public, all masked up! How bout your teenagers? You want them wearing a mask, but could care less what they wear to a pool, when your teens barely have anything on at the pool and the beach, trust me, you got more to be concerned with, than a mask. Not to mention unprotected sex, yep, you make sure they have a case on their cell phone for protection, but are clueless about what really goes on in their lives, but Im guessing its all good with that mask?
Seriously, I could go on and on and on with the multitude of ways, our own, personal behaviors can harm the lives of others, every single day, but we hide those behaviors from the world, because its OURS to hide. Just because you are going to SAVE THE WORLD, by wearing your mask, does not give you the right to look down on someone who has a different opinion than yours, dont be that person, the one who looks at the NON Mask wearing person and gets angry, or bitter, because you have ZERO clue what that person has gone through just to get to the grocery store. Just because you chose to wear a mask doesnt mean that you are perfect, germless, harmless, and it certainly doesnt mean they are shameless or clueless. We ALL have reasons for the decisions we make, I have zero desire to judge you either way, pandemic or not. Life in the 2020 hasnt been what any of us anticipated, nor were we prepared for it. Please just find some time, throughout your day, to count your blessings, find the good in others, see the beauty in the world, stop the hate, stop the bashing, stop what your doing and see the beauty in every person you meet. We ALL have a job to do here, on earth, to love each other, give it a try, for just ONE day. I promise you, if you do you, with a heart filled with love and appreciation, the rest will not matter.]
