Who Is At Fault?

Not a day goes by where I don’t wonder about what this world is coming to and what it will be like for my children, grandchildren, all children. Did my parents scratch their heads when I come out of my room dressed the way I was? Was I really dressed so outrageous compared to some of today’s teens? I don’t recall any one in my teen years having so many piercings as they are today. I don’t recall living a mall life. I don’t recall having tons of money given to me by my parents, like kids receive today. I don’t recall being given lunch money daily.
I do recall a small allowance, brown bagging a lunch, babysitting to have pocket money, having chores to do on the weekend before I even thought of leaving the house.
And what about the boldness of so many teens, the lack of respect for their elders. And that, want want want attitude. Oh my lawd! I don’t think I be alive today if I talked or treated my parents, family elders the way kids do today
So lets pick apart the child/teen of today. 1st impression is with the eyes. Yes we know we can inherit our parents features, whether it be height, weights, eye colors, hair colors, nose shape and even those knobby knees or big ears. They even say now a lot of our illness are inherited. That I believe, because I see my Mother unfolding in front of me..lol.. in many ways.
But what about, personality. Can we be the cause of our children’s attitudes today? Is it our fault they have lost touch with the realities of life. Unlike our own parents did we leave the flood gates open by not setting boundaries??? Have we let them loose into a crazy world for a greater percent of 24 hours in the day instead of having more family and all the personality that comes with a family who is close, who respects each other, home and property. But most of all, respect for themselves!
Welllllll…lol…According to university studies, personality is 70% inherited and 30% environmentally influenced.
Lets think about that one.. not too long though!..lol
Whatcha think eh?

Behind The Veil A Mystery

Behind_a_Veil_by_Ethlinn

If there is one thing I get total energy from, it is deep conversations, which can be about something as simple as thoughts on whether or not there is another universe, well, whether myself or the person I am in a conversation believe there is. And not being a scientist of any sort, anything myself or a friend may voice with regards is purely speculation.

The only thing we can be accurate about is ourselves, right? I mean who knows me better than me? Who knows you, better than you? And who cares what other people think of us, yes at times it can be enlightening and that is on one of our defenceless days, yet more often than not, we are usually insulted by what others think.

I think what we need to do before getting all up in arms when someone gives us a description of how they perceive us to be, is ask them why they see us that way and just maybe we can learn from it or if we plan on spending a life in total solitude, who cares if we change our ways or not?

It’s not easy being under a microscope, especially when the eye looking down is not your own. I don’t think we will ever truly understand the actions, the characters of all the people in our lives, but if we give thought to what others do say, maybe we can better ourselves to a greater degree. I like a person who has a bit of mystery to them. I mean, even the great Steven Hawking hasn’t figured it all out, he professing yet to be mystified by the female gender.
