Complicit

We are ALL complicit in this world.

We all see things we know aren’t right and yet we say nothing, do nothing and worse some of us even profit from it and enjoy it.

So who is worse? Is that the consolation people use to justify not doing anything? Well….but I don’t (insert excuse here).

———-

I’m angry. My kids like this stupid game called Roblox. I am starting to curtail their device use, but they still get some time and they like that game. The little one just walked in here upset that someone had swindled her out of all her money. Fake money, but still it takes time and effort to earn money on this thing OR you can use real money to buy their fake money. So now she wants real money.

The game manufacturers must know this thievery is happening but it’s probably very profitable to be complicit here because that means people must pay money to replenish it.

The kid says a lot of people do it. I suppose there is no reason why a game can’t mimic real life except this is now hurting my pocket book and hurting this child’s sense of fun, by making her feel vulnerable and taken advantage of. That’s a hard lesson to learn at ANY age let alone when she’s just starting to grasp the ways of the world.

I hate technology. I really do! Yes I realize it allows for all this comfort and convenience and saves lives and blah blah blah. But it also allows the grasp of evil to be far more reaching, far more powerful and far more hidden. At least with a knife I can see who is wielding it. I can see who my aggressor is, at least the one before me, maybe not the puppeteer.

But this….this is just horrible.

Our spirituality has not kept up with the advancements of the world and because of this our own creations will probably be the ones to kill us. I guess that’s what we idiots deserve. But I didn’t sign up for this. I am trying like hell to shift at least my own paradigm and then I get reminded time and time again that I live in a corrupt world.

I refuse to be complicit any longer!!!

But what does that now mean?

——-+

Does that mean I don’t give this child money to play her game? What if then she resorts to stealing. Does that mean I don’t allow her to play? Then she might resort to lying.

Why the fuck is this so damn complicated?????

No one tells you how difficult life and parenting can be. And no one tells you how it can all feel like a crisis. Life can feel so isolating and it’s not meant to be lived that way. Yet it’s getting worse and worse all the time it seems.

And I suppose in that I am also sometimes a bit complicit.

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

  1. I would focus on highlighting how it feels being wronged by others and turn it into a lesson on integrity and honesty. Treat others how you wish to be treated. Negative experiences build character if properly reinforced. Sometimes sheltering others robs them of the chance to learn from challenging moments.

      1. The freedoms we can exhibit as sentient beings can be both extraordinarily beautiful or irredeemably evil, yet it’s that freedom of expression that allows us to comprehend and pursue a more righteous path. Experiencing injustices personally gives context, so negative experiences are a blessing in a certain light. Just my take on things, but I wouldn’t change a single negative experience in my past because it’s made the who I am today.

      2. Yes. I agree to great extent. However it shouldn’t have to be this way.

        If we were raised to value each other and ourselves. If we lived in a society that placed value on compassion, truth and the greater good then we wouldn’t have to live hard lessons.

        It doesn’t make sense to me that such sentient beings can be so extraordinarily stupid, selfish, hypocritical, self-justifying, judgemental, illogical creatures. We are capable of so much more than the base level of consciousness we settle for. I have suffered and seen so much suffering and it’s a pity that such a beautiful, lush, plentiful world is mistreated and laid claims on by such virulent putrid fuckheads as humankind has proven to be.

      3. It all boils down to three things. Poverty, education and mental health. Sadly even in the richest damned super power in the world, we’re severely lacking in providing for all these issues.

        You have to remember that morals are built up through education, and poverty and mental health can further negate even the strongest lessons on empathy. Some people just lack empathy and or have been effected so harshly it’s been dulled. Teaching empathy to our children, of all ages really, should be the most important lesson in life. Just my two cents.

      4. Empathy yes ..such a valuable lesson. I wish also that we valued the truth and being authentically ourselves. That these things were seen as good things and not pushed aside and demeaned. And there is something to being vulnerable and open to experiences, to people, to life that as we grow and get jaded and cynical and hurt and angry we close off from being that and it’s the saddest affect modern society has on people. I think.
