There used to be a time where I didn't want to call people out on their nonsense. I believe in learning and evolving, so I gave people chance after chance. I'm well into my 30s and I realize more and more that there are some people who just.. won't.. learn. I'm certainly not saying I have all the world's wisdom, but the older you get, the more things seem not to deserve as much energy as you thought.
In a reality where previously taboo things are coming to a much needed light, people are realizing the shit ways we communicate. Folks are going no-contact with narcissistic family members. Pedophiles are being called out in every industry. Behaviours that were once normal in a patriarch-oriented, race abrasive, climb-to-overpower-humanity time period are being publicized and reversed.
I know, I know. NOT everyone was like that. NOT everything was bad. If you're this complacent in your current life, you are part of the problem. You are the reason people as a whole are not passed this concept of one person lording over another.
Hell, it's not even always about power. Some members are so unaware of their behaviours that they don't realize how they affect others, or maybe they do and just don't care. I know I'm typing in a general sense, I want this to apply to as many situations as possible for whomever reads this.
I'm still afraid to call people out. I still think they can change. The thing is, I'm the one changing, as I always have. Whether or not you finally become more compassionate, generous, courteous... that's up to you and I hope you choose a better walk through life.
Don't expect me to be there because I might have already waited too long, spent too much energy, or been hurt too many times. No one has to wait on another to change. Make your moves and wish the best for them.
