Toxic People

This was mainly a rant to be honest but maybe, just maybe you'll be able to make sense of it with its grammatical errors...

You see, after a certain incident, now more than ever I’ve come to the realisation that certain people need to be cut out of your life. No matter how much you think that they’ve been there for you or that they’ll change, they probably won’t. Stop telling yourself that it’s ok, you’ve known them for how much not years. CUT THEM OFF. It really isn’t healthy for you and they need to realise that what they’re doing is wrong and they can’t continue to treat you in ways that you think is unacceptable.

            The worst part is when you realise that this person isn’t even doing this for a specific agenda but that their behaviour is just a part of their character. That is the worst. When the person honestly doesn’t see anything wrong with what they’re doing. Walk away. It may sound selfish but save yourself. Now more than ever, when talking about some people I realise I don’t like the person that I have become in those times. And I don’t think people should be subjected to me when I get that upset and my personality just seems so ugly. No one should have to be treated like that, and you shouldn’t treat people like that either. It isn’t right

            Why is it that certain people fail to realise that their behaviour and character is ugly. Straight up ugly and unacceptable. It especially hurts when you see where this person is coming from and you know how hard their parents try with them and how kind hearted their parents are and then they just basically disgrace their parents. They bring shame to their name. As Mushu from Mulan would say, ‘Dishonour on your whole family. Dishonour on you, dishonour on your cow.’

            As one of my friends would say, it’s time to get your shit together and realise who in your life is needed. Differentiate the leaves from the branches and the branches from the roots. Realise that the roots will always be there, rain, sunshine, snow, it doesn’t matter. Those are the people that you keep around for life. Realise that everyone else may come and go. But no matter what, remember that everyone that has come into your life is there for a purpose and to teach you something in life. Learn from your past mistakes and take a stand. Don’t take any type of behaviour from people, remember that you deserve to be treated with respect and you too should treat others with respect.

I apologise in advance for the grammatical errors that may pop up. i actually attempted to at least glance through it but some may have slipped me, but do enjoy....

So, nowadays, everyone is a part of a Whatsapp group, and sure that’s convenient for most things but it’s also annoying and so for the most part people have now put their Whatsapp groups on mute. Personally, I don’t mute them, but I don’t talk in them either….not that I’m in as many as some persons because 20 Whatsapp groups is just ridiculous. But the few that I am in rarely hear from me, however I read all the messages….or I at least try to. So the other night they sent a message in the group speaking about how the opposition leader was on campus and on another hall. I really didn’t see the big deal because even though I try to keep up to date about what’s going on in my country, I’m pretty much out of touch.

               What did get my attention in the group was when persons started saying that they’d vote for this person IF they basically paid for their vote. And at first it was a joke but then, at least to me, it seems that one of the persons were serious. They even had the nerve to say that preference would be given to whoever gave them the most money in order for them to vote since all of them were the same anyways.

               Now last time I checked it was illegal to buy votes, if not illegal then at least morally wrong. And when things like this are constantly being done I don’t understand how you expect the country to be any better. You complain, and complain, and complain but yet you’re still a part of the problem! I DON’T GET IT! How do you expect things to change then? Personally out of principle, if you’re trying to buy my vote then no, I’m not voting for you because what kind of politics are you really looking at? Obviously you’re not looking out for my interest because all you want are votes to win. You don’t really care.

               Now, I also know that a good amount of ‘young people’ nowadays also ask the question ‘why vote when I don’t see anyone that I want to represent me?’ and I honestly don’t have the answer to that because I’m asking the same question because it has just really occurred to me that I’m at the legal age for voting in my country and not once did it ever really occur to me to vote or even get a national ID. So if you have the answer to that question, then please pass on the knowledge but what I do suggest is not to give away your vote just becayse someone giving you money to last you the most a week. Short term plans will not help us as a country in the long run, so let us try our best to make the right decisions.
