Greetings and Happy New Year!
This post is my first one for the year 2016 and it's about something that I've been dealing with for a long time. I don't recall talking about this specifically, although I might have mentioned some things here and there that might have made reference to this topic. This, my readers, is The Silent War.
Have you ever felt like you've been targeted silently? No words were spoken, no notes, memos or general announcements at all... but you just know someone's out to "get you". Perhaps you caught a distant stare or a "generic" condescending comment, perhaps there was just something that triggered you to think that you're an "enemy" that must be dealt with. Now, all this sounds a little bit too dramatic but, isn't life a whole drama?
There are good people and there are bad people and then there are those who fall somewhat in between, the flaky ones, I call them. Does it make you a bad person if you hate someone? Does it make you a good person if you give money to the poor but only to look good in front of others? Where do you draw the line? I've noticed, throughout the years, that some people like to pretend that they're good people by doing "little deeds" that look like they are selfless but they have a darker motive behind them.
Are you following me yet? Here's an example:
