Just be quiet
We live in a communication haven, (heaven), lol. However we also have lived in a "don't ask don't tell" type of world.
Many people choose to look the other way, instead of engage in conflict, challenge others, or simply do what is right. The Penn State scandal proved that to us. Say nothing, because it will hurt the "school", because the "school's image" was more important that the crimes to children.
Sadly, I have dealt with this in my career, and in my personal life. We are suppose to allow people to abuse others, simply because no one wants to deal with the abuser. Let's bow down to the screamer and the yeller, and hope we get back to normal soon. How nice would it be to put the abuser in his/her place, and force them to face consequences?
I am tired of being "quiet"! What does that get me?
NOTHING. My elders taught me to "take care of myself", and "stand up for myself", however today, they chose the path of the weak. Lower their heads and ignore what is right. Even worse, they remind me of Sandusky's wife! Blame everyone else but the abuser!! THEN pull at my family's solid core, and place guilt on us? That sounds like a bully to me!!
When you make your choices, no matter what they are, live with it. When karma comes around to bite you in your ass, look in the mirror, and not who else you can blame!!
I know who I am, and although people don't like it, you always know where I am at. I am not afraid of conflict, or a fight! How else can you get past the difficult times?
CHALLENGE each other, or walk away. There is no room for wishy washy cowards who hide behind their psychosis and mistakes.
Or don't. Do not expect me to play the "nodding" game. I was never good at that. Either hit me, or walk away.
