kolmoi asked:why are you and your rants so perf
I’ve been told I’m good at ranting. It’s like my special power apparently.
But I’d argue my ranting is better in small doses. I think because I genuinely care about the world and humanity. I mean it’s odd I don’t feel the emotionally connected to people I’m right near but I worry about the well being of people regardless. I’m like a ranting fairy.
I’m very opinionated (often to a fault) and it shows. Some of this stuff has been bothering me for ages and I don’t like seeing people being treated badly.
I’m a very firm believer that shame and consequences are an important and necessary evil if used right. (Shame teaches us not to do stuff that is harmful to ourselves and others and consequences do much of the same. Yeah there are times when it’s used against those that don’t deserve it and we need to fight those times but it’s not in and of itself a bad thing. We don’t need to get rid of it.) I feel like we should point out when people do wrong and reprimand it so we can change. People forget we need to do this. We forget how helpful it is in the long run.
I find a lot of our recent culture (especially the younger members my peers included) is about trying to avoid consequences despite behavior and acting like consequences are bad something I’m not behind.
I’ve never been one for taking the easy way out. I guess I’m strict and opinionated because I care.
I’m also a very firm believer in the saying “evil is what happens when good men say/do nothing”.
I watch and read so much history and you’d be surprised how often this phrase rings true.
I guess it all comes down to my belief. I want to have as few regrets as possible.
And I also believe I’d rather do good, speak up for people and help people and be disliked then do bad and be liked. (Though sometimes I admit I feel a bit sad and I certainly want good friends.)
I don’t want to be ashamed of myself at the end of the day. I don’t want to regret what I’ve done as much as I can.
I also believe in not saying something I don’t feel. I try to do this as much as possible. I’m pretty bad at saying I care about people as I worry I’ll praise them too much and they’ll get a big head I like to play the role of the person who keeps them grounded. (Which really isn’t my right to do but I always end up doing it. I’m so immature at times. Or in general. One of the two.)
Boy these are odd beliefs for a 21 year old (or 19 year old as that’s when I developed the beliefs if not earlier). I am either a pretentious, odd, or depressing 21 year old. I guess we’ll see.
I also act like I hate everyone but secretly I really like humanity. Shh. Don’t tell anyone.
I must be so fun at parties.
I’m also filled with a bunch of weird facts.
Also I’ve been told I also make a good human Pokedex.
