Ich liebe dieses Blog24.04.2007
Mal wieder ein genialer Artikel im Bitchitorial und ein absolutes Must-Read:
Unfortunately, we seem to have created a culture of responsibility-avoidants who want to have their self-pity cake and eat it too. I’m not sure when it started, but it seems that this truly is the “blame somebody else” generation. We’ve elevated self-pity to a cult-like status. Instead of kicking people in the ass and telling them to get over themselves, they are told they are all special and that they deserve whatever they desire.
The problem with society today, is that we INDULGE that self-pity, rage and depression. It’s cool to be depressed. You get attention that way, right? Instead of encouraging children to be the best they can be, it seems too many people simply imbue their kids with a sense of entitlement without any expectation of the hard work it takes to make your way in the world. We tell them they can have anything, BE anything they want, but we neglect to tell them that those things might take real work and effort, and that sometimes shit happens. It should all be easy, right? And if it’s not, then somebody else must be to blame.
Da kann ich auch nicht mehr als respektvoll meinen Hut ziehen, laut „AMEN!“ rufen und mich bedanken, daß ich mir den Rant über das Thema „Verantwortung“ sparen kann. 🙂
