First World Problems.
Posted on a Face Book page,
‘Another a hole that can’t park normal at CVS….Smh!!!‘
To the guy in the red truck – you have been socially shamed.
‘Look! A truck parked cockeyed – the community must know.’ (I blocked out the license number, you are welcome.)
Social Media shaming has become all to common.
To the original poster, if this is the biggest problem you have to deal with today, you are very blessed. The community expects you to always park straight, never cut anyone off, never exceed the speed limit and certainly always pull into the gas station heading the correct direction. You know what they say about Karma. She is a bitch…..
It amazes me how upset people get over the smallest things. In the big scope of things, does this really affect your life? You had to choose another parking spot. Man, life is tough.
Did this truck, endanger the citizens of our community? Did it endanger you?
Does it make you feel better to post this injustice? If so, why?
Is social shaming another form of bullying?
Many people ‘wig out” and rant about such things, why?
How many children have witnessed such rants? What does this teach our children?
Why does something this minor upset you enough to post on social media?
Take a breath, pause for a moment.
- Our actions and reactions define who we are.
- We cannot control someone else’s actions.
We can only control our reactions.
- In the big scope of things, how important is this?
- We are teaching our children life lessons, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Is this one we want them to learn?
This type of social media post doesn’t just happen in our small community, it happens everywhere.
Let’s take a breath and remember what is really important.
Nearly 14 years ago our country was attacked by terrorists. In one split second we became acutely aware of what was really important. We banded together, as a community and as a Nation.
Let’s remember the big picture and what is really important.
Relax, life is short.
